Waxwork Records is proud to present THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE Music From The Netflix Horror Series By The Newton Brothers. Originally a 1959 gothic horror novel written by American author Shirley Jackson, THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE is a multi-episode Netflix horror series directed by Mike Flanagan (Hush, Gerald’s Game) and starring Carla Gugino (Sin City, Wayward Pines) and Henry Thomas (E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial).
The plot centers around The Crain family which consists of a mother, father and five children that temporarily move into the Hill House mansion in 1992. The intention is to renovate the sprawling home and then sell it for a profit in effort to build their very own dream house. Soon after moving into Hill House, they begin to experience increasing paranormal activity that results in a tragic loss and the family fleeing from the house. 26 years later, the Crain siblings and their estranged father reunite after a new tragedy, and they are all forced to confront how their time in Hill House affected each of them.
The series has received massive critical acclaim and praise. Author Stephen King described the series as “close to a work of genius”. The Telegraph calls it “the most complex and complete horror series of its time”. Forbes stated that “it may actually be Netflix’s best original show, ever”. RogerEbert.com gave unanimous praise calling it “essential viewing” and stated that “the show contains some of the most unforgettable horror imagery in film or television in years”.
The superb music to THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE was composed by The Newton Brothers and features compositions that are a complex blend of ambient orchestral cues and melancholy, haunting piano. The music is effectively hypnotic, ghostly, gothic, and at times, downright terrifying.
