COS - Same crew, new digs: Two years after he offered his spin on Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, writer-director Mike Flanagan returns to do the same for Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw. On October 9th, The Haunting of Bly Manor will tell another Gothic horror story awash in tragedy, and Netflix has unlocked its first trailer.
This time around, the story follows a young nanny hired by a wealthy man to watch over his niece and nephew at his remote family estate dubbed — you guessed it — Bly Manor. As one might have presumed with “Haunting” in the title, there are a number of eerie and unexplained things that go bump in the night within the manor’s infinite halls.
Bly Manor is just one of a handful of projects involving Flanagan. He’s also working on the screenplay for Stephen King’s Revival, and he is currently shooting another series for Netflix, Midnight Mass.
As much acclaim as "Haunting Of Hill House" received last year I still think it's one of the most underrated series Netflix has produced. It was so fucking well done, not just in terms of horror/thrillers, but in general.
Remember this scene?
And this -
Give this Michael Flanagan fella the bag please Netflix and see to it that we get one of these haunt series every year around Halloween time. Pretty please.
