The Haunting of Hill House Where Filmed

Posted by
The Haunting of Hill House (HHH) is considered one of the finest horror novels ever written, published by Shirley Jackson in 1959. The Netflix horror series is a loose adaptation of the book, about the supernatural phenomena that will have to face a group of siblings who lived their childhood in a famous haunted house.

The story has been already adapted into a film in 1963 and 1999 (both called The Haunting). This new HHH version has been directed by Mike Flanagan, the filmmaker behind good scary movies like Absentia, Oculus, or Gerald's Game. The ten-episode production is starring Timothy Hutton, Carla Gugino, Michel Huisman and Elizabeth Reaser.

The house, set somewhere in Massachusetts, essentially becomes another character in the show. The Haunting of Hill House was filmed in and around Atlanta, Georgia. These are the most relevant filming locations of the series, which was fairly well received by the public and critics alike:

The Haunting of Hill House Location
The exteriors of the Hill House were shot in a manor in LaGrange (Troup County, Georgia). This property is a magnificent 1920's English Tudor-style mansion situated in a large estate surrounded by enchanting gardens, bordering West Point Lake. Until recently it was used as a venue for weddings and functions, when it was briefly named Bisham Manor by the event operators.

The interiors of the house and Shirley's Crain mortuary were filmed at the large EUE/Screen Gem Studios on Lakewood Way, Atlanta. Here it was created the most acclaimed episode of the season, No. 6 called 'Two Storms', being praised for its one-shot takes. The longest lasts 17 minutes, and the action is switching from the present in the funeral parlor to the events occurred a stormy night in Hill House.

The historic bed and breakfast and wedding venue The Whitlock Inn in Marietta was used to shot the exteriors of Harris Funeral Home.
