Netflix is doubling down on spooky content for the month of October. 

The streaming giant has finally confirmed the premiere date for The Haunting of Hill House, and it's coming two weeks earlier than the network's other new genre drama, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Yes, the series will bow Friday, October 12 globally, and all ten episodes of the first season will be made available to audiences on that date. 

Described as "a modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson's iconic novel, The Haunting of Hill House explores a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country."

"Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past -- some of which still lurk in their minds, while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House."

The near-Halloween debut date is the best one for a show like this.

Haunted houses have been done to death on both TV and movies, so it will be fun to find out whether The Haunting of Hill House will bring anything different to the table. 

As far as horror TV shows go, American Horror Story has been killing it because of the way it manages to reinvent itself every single year. 

Will The Haunting of Hill House be able to do the same?

The Haunting of Hill House Quotes

Theo: Did you just punch me in the boob?
Shirley: Yeah. Yeah! You kiss my husband, that's what you get. You get punched in the fucking boob. And you get evicted from my fucking house.

No, dear. Use your cup of stars. Insist on your cup of stars. Once they've strapped you into being like everyone else, you'll never see your cup of stars again.

Mrs. Dudley [to Nell]
