Trailer for Raspberry Hill available | Variety feature

Spooky season is almost upon us and this year it’s extra special.

That’s because Raspberry Hill, the mini series based on The Mystery Of Raspberry Hill – a thrilling title for middle grade readers by Eva Frantz, already sold to seven territories and counting – is about to drop, and the trailer is already out.

Raspberry Hill (2018)

The Mystery Of Raspberry Hill follows Stina, a twelve-year-old girl with a lung disease, as she is sent to a mysterious sanatorium in the middle of nowhere in the 1920s. The place is gorgeous but something unsettling is afoot: why are so many patients disappearing into thin air? Why isn’t anyone allowed contact with the outside world? And why does her mysterious new best friend only appear at night?

The series has set great expectations: Variety has dedicated it an exclusive feature , praising the fact that it is contributing to fill the gap for darker series that are suitable for young audiences.

This resulted in a challenge for the production team, thus quoted in Variety: “The task was to maintain the same level of horror as in the book. In my experience, pre-teens and teens love to be scared. And since the end of the story is happy and hopeful, there is room for dark shades before that.”

Congratulations to the author and the production team, and fingers crossed!
