The Haunting of Hill House is a classic Halloween story.
Four very different people meet at Hill House, at the behest of Dr. John Montague, who is conducting a ghost-watch at the gothic mansion. Just after her mother's death, Eleanor Vance, who experienced poltergeist activity as a child, is summoned because of her connection with the supernatural. Also summoned are artist Theodora and wealthy inheritor of Hill House, Luke. All four will be changed by Hill House, that's for certain. But after they inhale its mysteries and taste its ghosts, will the house let them go unharmed?
The Haunting of Hill House is a favorite of mine. It never ceases to thrill me, surprise me, and send shivers down my spine.
