“Weaves superb dramatic and comedic acting from all four of its leads into a dream-like journey befitting Jackson's masterful literary style”~Mashable

Aroview: Elisabeth Moss gives another inspired performance in this literary themed thriller, playing a renowned horror writer who is interrupted on the brink of completing her masterpiece by the unwelcome arrival of a younger couple into her household. Fantastic tension and scenery-chewing fun ensues.

Based on the largely fictional book "Shirley: A Novel" by Susan Scarf Merrell, which imagines the life of acclaimed horror writer Shirley Jackson, author of WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE and THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, both of which have been adapted for TV.
