The Haunting of Bly Manor is the follow-up to The Haunting of Hill Home, which was additionally created by Mike Flanagan. Each are a part of the anthology sequence The Haunting. Whereas Hill Home tackled Shirley Jackson’s iconic horror novel of the identical title, Bly Manor makes use of materials from one other well-known piece of horror fiction, the late Nineteenth-century novella The Flip of the Screw by Henry James.

The story issues a haunted home (which I suppose goes to be the one fixed on this sequence) in rural England referred to as Bly Manor. Victoria Pedretti’s Dani Clayton is the brand new governess to 2 orphan kids who inhabit the home together with a housekeeper. Clayton is informed by her employer and the kids’s uncle, Henry Wingrave (Henry Thomas), that the final governess died on the premises.

The primary episode has Dani arriving on the Manor, and she or he begins to see unusual individuals who the kids’s uncle by no means talked about have been residing contained in the constructing. Additionally, Dani, who’s an American, could have introduced her personal demons (literal ones) to the home. She retains seeing a determine with holes for eyes within the mirror.

The youngsters are clearly conscious of the ghostly presence and even seem to speak with them.

All that being mentioned, The Haunting of Bly Manor just isn’t scary, at the least not to this point. There aren’t any bounce scares, or every other type of scares for that matter. The environment is creepy, sure, however even ghostly appearances are portrayed as demons from the previous than precise demons.

The episode, titled The Nice Good Place, is well-directed and acted. The visible type and cinematography (by James Kniest and Maxime Alexandre) is basic Flanagan. It is vitally cinematic and helps construct rigidity as a result of a particular atmosphere.

The performances are nice, although a few of the accents, particularly of Henry Thomas, are going to take some getting used to. The great factor is, Wingrave just isn’t a lead character, and that may be missed.

The Haunting of Bly Manor is off to a terrific begin. The primary episode was an ideal setup for the story, and I can’t wait to see what occurs subsequent. Keep tuned for the complete evaluate.
