Hidden Ghosts In 'The Haunting Of Hill House' Revealed
There are more than 30 hidden ghosts in the Netflix Original, 'The Haunting Of Hill House'. How many have you found?
'The Haunting Of Hill House' was released on Netflix last week and has been terrifying viewers ever since. The new ten-part series flashes between past and present, telling the story of a fractured family who confront haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it. The series is based on Shirley Jackson's 1959 book of the same name.
The show is directed by horror director, Mike Flanagan, and has been made all the more chilling since viewers have started reporting seeing ghosts hiding in the background of shots in each episode. These sinister stealth spooks are more unsettling than the more prominent spectres as the characters in the show don't notice or comment on them. This leaves viewers to wonder whether they actually saw what a ghost or if it was just their imagination.
The makers of the show have now confirmed that there are at least 27 hidden ghosts throughout the whole season and released a breakdown of the number of ghosts to look out for per episode. It's like 'Where's Wally' haunted edition. Episode three, 'Touch', with nine hidden ghosts, has the most of all the episodes as far as we know. The creators have left the number of ghosts we should be looking out for in episode ten a mystery.
So, we know how many ghosts we need to be looking out for, but the tricky bit is spotting them as they are often only half in shot, obscured by something, peering through a small hole or are an out of focus blur in the background.

Episode 2: 'Open Casket' - 2
Episode 3: 'Touch' - 9
