With everyone looking for something new and spooky to watch this Halloween season, Netflix just dropped a new show and horror fans are saying it’s even better than The Haunting of Hill House.
If you cast your mind back to 2018, you’ll remember everyone being scared out of their mind after watching the terrifying horror anthology series created by Mike Flanagan.
The show followed two timelines as five siblings are forced to deal with the paranormal experiences at Hill House that continue to haunt them in the present day.
Yep, Mike Flanagan has only gone and done it again!
The series is loosely based on the short story by Edgar Allan Poe and the official synopsis says: “She's coming for them all. In this wicked series from Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House) and based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe, ruthless siblings Roderick and Madeline Usher have built Fortunato Pharmaceuticals into an empire of wealth, privilege and power.
“But past secrets come to light when the heirs to the Usher dynasty start dying at the hands of a mysterious woman from their youth.”
After the eight-episode mini series dropped on Thursday (12 October) fans flocked to social media to share their initial reactions and it sounds wild.
“The Fall of the House of Usher is one of the most insane things that I’ve ever watched,” one fan on X declared.
“I [swear to God] Mike Flanagan has never missed. The Fall of the House of Usher might actually overtake The Haunting of Hill House for me this is show is so crazy and soo good,” another fan gushed.
While a third wrote: “The Fall of the House of Usher is crazy tbh. Acting is phenomenal.”
A fourth declared: “House of Usher is so f***ing crazy like woah.”
The series features a number of faces fans of Mike Flanagan will recognise from previous projects, with the cast including the likes of Mary McDonnell, Willa Fitzgerald, Carl Lumbly, Mark Hamill, Henry Thomas, Crystal Balint, Kyliegh Curran, Samantha Sloyan, Matt Biedel, Kate Siegel, Rahul Kohli, Daniel Jun, T’Nia Miller, Paola Núñez, Sauriyan Sapkota, and Ruth Codd.
We know what we'll be watching this weekend!
