I can't help but imagine this spine-tingling Shirley Jackson collection like a series of episodes from the original Twilight Zone, with a grainy, black-and-white presentation, an ordinary John/Jane Doe with strange psychic abilities, Rod Sterling's quirky narration, and Bernard Hermann tick-tocking in the background (just give it a try, and you'll see what I mean). Also like the Twilight Zone, Jackson likes to give us little tidbits of oddball comedy that offset the more sinister tales, which may be received in poor taste, but for me, this just magnifies the whole and integrates everything together, where Jackson is able to brandish her own unique and weird imagination.… (mais)

The Haunting of Hill House could perhaps be considered the inauguration for the golden age of horror writing, taking off from where the Turn of the Screw and Dracula left us stirring uncomfortably half a century prior to pave the blood-chilling road to the Shining in only years to come. With the exception of Frankenstein and a few notable examples, it is difficult to find works of horror which are successful in actually terrorizing the inflexibly emotionless modern soul (whose senses have been notoriously anesthetized) without resorting to cheap slashers and chainsaw massacres. Jackson, however, thrives in the psychological sphere in bringing us the greatest horror of all: our innermost selves unhinged for us to see.… (mais)

A Claustrophobic but Mesmerizing Story

What happened to the Blackwood family? As this bizarre tale opens, we meet paranoid, superstitious Mary Katherine (Merricat) and agoraphobic Constance, young women who live in an old mansion with only their infirm Uncle Julian. As the story unfolds the reader learns that after their family tragedy six years ago, the trio has been ostracized by their small town. The sisters stick to their rigid routine, rules, traditions and superstition s unit an unsettling change occurs.
This short book had me on the edge of my seat. Who and what caused the family tragedy? What underlying problems produced the damage to the sister? The story is told through the unreliable voice of Merricat, and that proves to be a creepy and claustrophobic point of view!

"No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality. No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more."

A creepy psychological thriller. I listened to it on audiobook. Next time I will read it. It is fast moving and at time I had to rewind so as not to miss important story beats!… (mais)
