Hill House’s Red Door
“The Haunting of Hill House’s” spooky atmosphere is centered around the mysterious Red Room. Nell’s ghost explains that the room is like the “stomach” of the house, which feeds off the people within its walls. The room appears different depending on who wants to enter. It disguises itself as a different room to trick its inhabitants into believing they are safe.
Hill House ghosts represent different kinds of feelings – a person’s guilt, regrets, or trauma. For instance, Luke isn’t dead, but he sees his dead girlfriend Olivia’s ghost with a distended head and a disheveled nightgown. While the ghosts are most active at night, they are less powerful during the day. The house’s energy is more vulnerable in the dark.
Steven Crain’s story
The Haunting of Hill House is a fictionalized account of the Crain family’s experiences in a house renowned for paranormal activities. The family started as a loving, close-knit group, but has grown apart as adults. The family has even severed all ties with their father.
After Steve’s father died in the house, the apparitions started appearing in the Red Room. Abigail and Steve’s twin also appeared there. Steve was able to will himself back to life, but he was not the only apparition in the house. In his youth, Steve had noticed the ‘Clock Guy.’ He wrote about him in the book, and he recalled seeing him tending to the clock.
Steven Crain’s character
Steven Crain, the eldest of the five Crain children, is a rational thinker and born leader. He writes down the events of the haunting of Hill House as if they were a fictional story, and he rejects theories that don’t make any sense. He is skeptical of the existence of ghosts, and uses his books as a safe haven from the real world. His name is an allusion to Stephen King, who is a fan of Shirley Jackson’s writing.
The TV show adaptation of the book follows the Crain family, although it is a completely different story. Despite the difference in plot and tone, the characters and storylines of the two versions of the story are similar. Steven Crain is the horror author, while his brother Luke is an addict. In both, the Crains stay in the Hill House after everyone else has left.
