With books such as Bird Box and The Silence being made into successful Netflix films, The Little Stranger and Stephen King’s It and Pet Sematary intobox-office movies, and classics like Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House and We Have Always Lived in the Castle into series, horror is experiencing a resurgence.
