‘Hill House’ Fans Have Found All Those Hidden Ghosts So You Don’t Have To

Easter eggs in movies and telly series are supposed to be a delightful surprise but in Netflix‘s The Haunting of Hill House, it’s just not because instead of seeing something that makes you go “now, that’s cool”, you find yourself saying “holy moly, is that an actual face?”

I mean, hiding Hill House‘s rich history of dead people in random corners of our screens is in fact a smart move, I’m just terribly afraid of everything. Luckily, for those of you who get a thrill out of ghostly faces, fans of the latest hit series have swapped notes to show you where to spot ’em all.

In short, Hill House is loosely based on the 1959 novel of the same name by Shirley Jackson. The telly series, set in modern times, throws us into the lives of the Crain family. They’re a beautiful family and love each other heaps and everything is good until they move into the house. Hill House is this creepy, gorgeous but creepy mansion the Crain family buy in order to flip it, make some cash, and move on to the next property.

The series switches between “then” and “now”, the former an initially happy portrait of a delightful family in search of their “forever home” and the latter, a completely broken family forever haunted by the horrors of Hill House.

So, you have Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones) as the eldest Crain sibling, Steven – an author of horror series; Elizabeth Reaser (Twilight) plays second eldest Shirley a mortician; Kate Siegel as Theodora, the middle child; and the twins Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Luke and Victoria Pedretti as Eleanor ‘Nellie’ Crain.

Carla Gugino stars as architect and the children’s mother Olivia while Timothy Hutton plays her on-screen husband and builder Hugh.

Your showrunner is Mike Flanagan who also directed the Netflix film Gerald’s Game – the adaptation of the Stephen King novel.

Speaking of the man:

Once again, the spoilers are coming.

So, as Steven leaves Hill House for the last time in the very last episode, we – the audience – see alllllllll the ghosts of the house. There are tens of them, all from different time periods. You’re familiar with some, but definitely not all.

Cool, cool, cool, cool, cool.

As the Hill House Twitter teased, someone decided to hide ghosts all throughout the series – pale, lifeless faces just staring at you waiting to make eye contact.

Or in some cases, JUST CREEPY HANDS.

It’s great.

In episode one, there are four – FOUR – ghosts.

This one’s a bit tough to spot so I’ve circled it:

Yeah, not too bad that one.

This one is a big nope.

In episode two, there are two ghosts and in episode three, there are NINE.

In episode five, there are three ghosts and in episode six, their Twitter claims there are no ghosts but that’s probably a lie. Why? Because in episode eight they claim there are no ghosts too and I can tell you right now that’s a blatant LIE. Anyway, two ghosts in episode seven and four in episode nine, and well… too many in episode ten.

One fan, for the fun of it, has taken a screenshot of all the ghosts she’s spotted and posted it on Twitter.

I hate it, I hate it so much.

Not to mention that entire scene where the bent neck lady is just chilling in the background.

Here’s something to lighten the mood:

Sleep well, good people.
