The film's portrayal of the acclaimed horror author is based on a work fiction but draws heavily from her troubled life.
You may not know much about author Shirley Jackson, but you're almost certainly familiar with some of her work
Her novel The Haunting of Hill House is one of the best and most influential ghost stories of all time and has seen numerous adaptations, including the 2018 hit Netflix series of the same name. Her short story "The Lottery" has been taught to generations of high school students as a quintessential parable on the dangers of conformity and tradition. But if you can believe Elisabeth Moss' (The Handmaid's Tale, The Invisible Man) portrayal of the author in the new trailer for Shirley, her writing was far from the most frightening aspect of her life.

It's obviously Christmas movies.
