The Haunting of Hill House

If you’ve been around for a while, you might remember that I’m really awful at writing reviews. My brain just isn’t analytical in that way, which is why I have five ratings I use for my Movies I Watched list in my bullet journal.

  • Ugh
  • Meh
  • Good
  • SO Good
  • OMG

So I’m not good at reviews, but I want to say a couple of things about The Haunting Of Hill House, a miniseries from Netflix. First, let me say it got an OMG in my bullet journal. Now I’ll fumble around a couple of reasons why…

I’ve never really watched a lot of horror movies. I read tons of horror when I was younger, but movies never worked as well for me. And I left the genre almost entirely when it became more about the blood and gore than the hair standing up on the back of my neck. For me, it’s the unseen that’s truly terrifying. For example, Sixth Sense scared the crap out of me, until they started actually showing the dead people on the screen.

I didn’t really have any intention of watching The Haunting of Hill House, but I heard so many good things and it’s Halloween week, so I hit play.

Good lord, what an excellent, creepy, engrossing, terrifying series.

Exceptional writing. Exceptional directing. Exceptional acting. Exceptional setting. It’s pretty freaking exceptional all around.

No cheap jump scares. No cuing of dramatic music before the cat jumps out of the cupboard to make everybody laugh. The setting is perfect. The makeup and effects are chilling and so real, which matters to me. (See: Sixth Sense.)

This isn’t the kind of horror that mostly has the audience rolling their eyes and then occasionally jumping or screaming when whatever it is flashes on the screen. This is the kind of horror where you spend the time between flashes of terror sitting so still and tense that you don’t realize how scared you are until you try to move and your muscles are tight from the sustained tension.

The exceptional characterization (I’m just going to keep using exceptional, because it is) and acting makes the relationships between the sibling group so engrossing, the actual haunting becomes almost a secondary storyline. (Almost.) This isn’t a story about a family who spent some time in a haunted house but got out and whew, that happened. This is a story about how Hill House truly haunts this family.

Brilliant story.

Creepy af.

Seriously, you should all watch it. Because OMG.

UNDER CONTROL is available now!

Under ControlBOSTON FIRE is back! I’m so excited for the release of UNDER CONTROL today. I find great dads to be very sexy, so it was extra fun writing Derek Gilman. Especially when he gets stuck in an elevator with Olivia McGovern and the sparks fly.

Meet the tough, dedicated men of BOSTON FIRE—and the women who turn their lives upside down.

When faced with the opportunity to change shifts while staying in the same house, veteran firefighter Derek Gilman jumps at the chance. His new schedule means not working Saturdays, which means more time to spend with his two kids. His divorce may have been amicable, but being a firefighter and a single dad is a lot to juggle. And when fate brings a gorgeous, wealthy woman into his life, he’s pretty sure he can’t handle more than he already is.

Olivia McGovern loves plans. She planned to start her own business and planned its growth. It’s earning her seven figures now, but her personal life simply doesn’t exist. Getting trapped in a broken elevator figures in exactly nowhere, and freaking out in front of a sexy firefighter definitely isn’t on the agenda. Especially not one with two kids and an ex.

What would have been a random incident with an attractive stranger becomes something more when a charity event brings them back together. They’re from different sides of the tracks, literally—with friends, family and careers to consider. But as Derek and Olivia are discovering, chemistry doesn’t allow for plans, and love doesn’t bother with logistics.

“Stacey’s gift for writing easily relatable characters will hook readers and leave them eagerly waiting for the next installment.” —Publishers Weekly
