Netflix's latest horror series The Haunting of Hill House is terrifying viewers, leaving them vomiting, close to passing out and unable to sleep.
The series has only been available to stream since the 12th October but it has got viewers well and truly spooked.
The Haunting of Hill House is based on Shirley Jackson's classic 1959 novel of the same name, but it looks like director Mike Flanagan has changed the plot quite a bit for this one.
Described as a slow-building horror, Mike Flanagan's adaptation follows five siblings who grew up in the famously spooky abode, and they are forced to return to the mansion and relive their nightmare all over again.
Over the course of 10 episodes, the programme reveals the horrific haunting that took place at the Cranes' childhood home, and the impact that it's had on them as adults.
One person wrote on Twitter: "Haunting of Hill House is making me terror vomit in joyful confusion. So I love it."
Another commented: "The Haunting of Hill House on @NetflixUK is one of the most terrifying, nail biting, hide behind the couch, don't even breath, I'm going to pass out from fear things I have ever watched. In. My. Life."
A third said: "I had to take a break from The Haunting of Hill House."
Another wrote: "Who is watching The Haunting of Hill House because I need to talk about it, potentially in the middle of the night when I can't sleep because I'm now afraid of the dark."
We knew the series was going to be good as it had a 100 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes before it was even released.
Daniel D'Addario from Variety wrote: "Slowly insinuating, building in power as it tells a story of repressed trauma and family discord. It's an effective scare-fest that is at its best when the tale does more than jolt the viewer."
Chris Evangelista from Slashfilm said: "The Haunting of Hill House is a frequently scary, surprisingly emotional saga focused on both past and present. Director Mike Flanagan takes Shirley Jackson's iconic haunted house novel and works into something wholly different, yet equally effective."
The horror stars Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, Timothy Hutton, Elizabeth Reaser, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, and Kate Siegel.
Victoria Pedretti, Lulu Wilson, Mckenna Grace, Paxton Singleton, Violet McGraw, and Julian Hilliard will all appear in the Netflix series too.
