📺 The Haunting of Bly Manor

The Haunting of Bly Manor proves to be a worthy follow-up to Hill House, a chilling gothic romance both viscerally gripping and emotionally compelling.
Mike Flanagan is one of the finest horror filmmakers working today. From Gerald’s Game to Doctor Sleep, the auteur has proven his spooky chops. But perhaps none of his works have been as transcendent or as popular as The Haunting of Hill House. The 2018 series was an artistic marvel, imbuing genuine scares and breathtaking cinematic technicality with a heartbreaking, soul crushing tale of a family coping with grief, mental illness, addiction and trauma. Two years later, Flanagan has turned his Netflix hit into a seasonal anthology, following up with The Haunting of Bly Manor.
This eerie story is an amalgamation of Henry James’ literary works, with a particular emphasis on his 1898 novella The Turn of the Screw. Using several familiar actors from Hill House in new roles, Bly Manor unfolds another beautiful tragedy with meticulous attention to detail and characters more haunted than the house. But while Flanagan’s impeccable character work remains, this second season is an entirely different beast.
