Deadline is reporting that Mckenna Grace, one of the young stars in the Netflix series The Haunting of Hill House will play a young Sabrina Spellman in the upcoming holiday episode of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina titled A Midwinter’s Tale.

Over the last decade there have been many very successful genre TV shows like Stranger Things, The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, and Bates Motel, just to name a few. The latest series to scare up fans is The Haunting of Hill House from Netflix. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard the show is just incredible and prompting friends and family to hold up in their homes binge watching it. What make this series such a standout? In a word, everything.
The show, adapted from Shirley Jackson’s novel of the same name, seems to have captured elements needed for film to perfection. Front and center is the meaty storyline. Fans have seen cases where books don’t always translate to the screen. The Haunting of Hill House, however, delivers a story which transcends the horror or paranormal genre. The plotline more than drives the series, it sucks the viewer in with weighty emotional family dynamics. Not just telling the terrifying experiences of the Crain family, but really displaying the deep wounds and trauma left by those experiences. Yes, it delivers all the creepiness horror fans want, but also showcases the humanity that many genre shows and films tend to lack. read more
