In the popular horror series The Haunting of Hill House, there is a scene in which two sisters, Shirly and Theo, are arguing, unaware of the presence of “someone” watching them from the back seat. While the argument continues, Nell’s ghost bursts into the front screen making the woman scream out in terror.
Although these two women are great actresses, they really nailed the fear they portrayed in this scene. How, you might ask? Well, turns out they weren’t acting. The original script had more conversation between the two before Nell jumps out, but unbeknownst to them the creator told Nell to jump out early to get a real-feel emotion, and it worked.
