"...'Hill House' is an eighty-year-old mansion built by long-deceased 'Hugh Crain'. The story follows main characters 'Dr. John Montague', an investigator of the supernatural, 'Eleanor Vance', a shy young woman who resents having lived as a recluse caring for her demanding invalid mother, 'Theodora', a flamboyant, bohemian artist and 'Luke Sanderson', the young heir to 'Hill House'.

"Dr. Montague hopes to find scientific evidence of the existence of the supernatural. He rents Hill House for a summer and invites as his guests several people, chosen because of their past experience with paranormal events. 

"Of these, only Eleanor and Theodora accept. Eleanor travels to the house, where she and Theodora will live in isolation with Montague and Luke. The four overnight visitors begin to form friendships as Dr. Montague explains the building’s history, which encompasses suicide and other unexplained deaths..."
