'Haunting Of Hill House' Fans Will Love Sky's Terrifying New Horror Series 'Hausen'
| Last updated
Today, the channel released its first-look trailer of Hausen, a "groundbreaking" new series based on a family living in an creepy af haunted house. Sound familiar?
The show from Sky Germany is headed for Sky Atlantic in 2021, and the trailer has just dropped. You can watch it here:
The eight-episode series is described as a horror/mystery hybrid which tells a "dark and twisted" story. Anyone else getting major Stranger Things vibes from that trailer?
Directed by Thomas Stuber, Hausen tells the story of 16-year-old Juri (Tristan Göbel), who moves into a rundown house on the outskirts of a city with his dad Jaschek following the tragic death of his mother.
As Jaschek attempts to regain some normality in he and his son's lives, Juri begins to discover the house has a life of its own, feeding on the grief and suffering of its habitants.
In order to fight the house's curse, Juri has to attempt to convince the population of hostile neighbours in his block to fight against it with him - which also means fighting against his father who has already fallen too deeply under its sinister spell. Sounds sufficiently terrifying, right? Safe to say we'll be sleeping with the lights on tonight.
Quirin Schmidt, Executive Producer at Sky Germany said: "We are very pleased to present Hausen to our viewers.
"With a top-class cast, an impressive set and a wonderful crew, the special world of Hausen came alive under Thomas Stuber's direction.
"Through visual and narrative power, the series combines horror, mystery and drama into an emotional and intimate play in an 'obsessive' prefabricated concrete building, the likes of which have never been seen before on German television."
Hausen comes to Sky Atlantic in 2021.
