'The Haunting Of Hill House' Creators Are Making A Terrifying New Netflix Series
The spine-tingling drama is adapted from the IDW comic book by Stephen King's son Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, and is set to land on the streaming service on 7th February, 2020.
The nail-biting show stars IT actor Jackson Robert Scott, Scandal's Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones and Griffin Gluck.
Other stars attached to the series include Bill Heck, Laysla De Oliveira, Thomas Mitchell Barnet, Griffin Gluck and Coby Bird.
Netflix says of the plot: "After their father is murdered under mysterious circumstances, the three Locke siblings and their mother move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse, which they discover is full of magical keys that may be connected to their father's death.
"As the Locke children explore the different keys and their unique powers, a mysterious demon awakens - and will stop at nothing to steal them.
"From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), the series is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family."

Locke and Key, which has been partly filmed in Nova Scotia, has been eight-years in the making.
According to Variety, the rights to the graphic novels were first acquired by DreamWorks in 2010 before a pilot for Fox was developed. However, the US broadcaster eventually passed on making it into a full series in 2011.
It was briefly with Hulu in 2017, before it eventually landed at Netflix's door, who redeveloped the show with a new cast and script.
Locke and Key arrives on Netflix globally on 7th February, 2020.
