The Haunting of Hill House (2018): Nell aka The Bent Neck Lady

The Bent Neck Lady terrified the Hill Children…but who was she? Time doesn't seem to matter much inside of Hill House. The most tragic case is poor Nell Crain, who as a child was haunted by a specter she called The Bent Neck Lady, a horrific shadowy ghoul with her head twisted disturbingly to the side. We later find that The Bent Neck Lady is Nell herself, decades in the future, hanging from a rope that the house convinced her to tie around her neck after the loss of her new husband. When Nell jumped from the top of the spiral staircase, she fell through time and memory, one last-ditch effort to warn herself about the inevitable misery to come.
