The Haunting of Hill House received a lot of praise from horror fans and it was one of the recent must-watch television shows that premiered on Netflix. A star of this TV show is Michiel Huisman, who plays Steven Crain, and he gave an exclusive interview to Collider about The Haunting of Hill House.

Michiel Huisman said this on working with director Mike Flanagan for The Haunting of Hill House:
“Well, it is really inspiring to work with someone like Mike. When you look at our story, 10 episodes with like two timelines, the current timeline, basically only takes place over the course of a couple of days, maybe a week at the most.”
“Family comes together, there’s a funeral and then they go back to the house. Then there’s so many different timelines in-between, and so sometimes, it would get so complex that I would write down timelines in the back of my script and stuff so that I have like a reference.”
“Every now and then I would lose track, and I would ask him, thinking like, guy’s writing it, editing it, directing it, and he would always know exactly where we’d be. Even though I sometimes couldn’t figure out how he did it, I guess it’s really his baby and he knows everything, all the details very intimately, so that was very cool.”
Michael Huisman also spoke about the standout episodes in this television show:
“Oh god, I mean, there’s so many though. One that comes to mind is, it would be the episode that … Because the first five episodes basically follow or feature one sibling most. One of them features our youngest sister, Nell, who suffers from, amongst other things, from sleep paralysis.”
“There’s a couple things that happen in that episode with her while she’s going through like an attack of sleep paralysis that I just thought was so brilliantly written. Do you remember seeing that? What I’m talking about really, without wanting to give it away too much. When her husband is suffering from like a stroke, and she’s lying in bed and she can’t get up because she’s paralyzed.”
