I've always wondered if there is a connection between the film The House on Haunted Hill and Shirley Jackson's novel, The Haunting of Hill House?

  • Both came out in 1959.
  • Both have similar titles including the words house, haunt, and hill
  • Both have similar plots, involving a group of people staying in a haunted mansion

Is there a connection between these? Did one inspire the other or were both inspired by a different source?
