The hidden ghosts in The Haunting of Hill House

Have you been watching Netflix’s new creepy series The Haunting of Hill House?  Did you know that there are hidden ghosts that appear in nearly every episode that you may have missed, especially if you have been watching through your fingers.

The shows creator Mike Flanagan recently revealed in an interview that there are ghostly figures hiding in plain sight throughout the whole series.

In the interview with Bloody Disgusting Flanagan said “I got to create whatever ghosts I wanted to and we would use them often based on the fears of people in the writer’s room.

“If you go back and watch the series again, in every episode there’s probably somewhere between eight and 10 ghosts that are just hidden in plain sight that we called no attention to but they’re there.

“As you see them pop up throughout, they’re definitely not random.

“They are the denizens of Hill House from years past that the house decided to keep for itself.”
