Netflix’s The Haunting Of Bly Manor Is Seriously Scaring Viewers

The Haunting Of Bly Manor landed on Netflix yesterday and viewers have been seriously scared by the new horror TV show.

The new Netflix show, which is created and written by Mike Flanagan, is based on Henry James’ The Turn Of The Screw.

The book is a relatively creepy tale about a governess who goes to look after two children in a country home in England.

It’s a pretty good gothic horror book and was made into a movie a while back.

I believe they also made a sequel film, which is a bit strange if you ask me.

Anyway, Netflix’s The Haunting Of Bly Manor isn’t really a continuation from The Haunting Of Hill House.

It’s a new story, which new characters, yet it’s set in another manor and features a number of the same actors from the first season.

Viewers have been watching the horror series (just in time for Halloween) and they’ve been pretty scared by it.

You can check out some of their reactions to the new show on Twitter below.

I loved The Haunting Of Hill House, which was a retelling of Shirley Jackson’s book of the same name.

I’ve been watching The Haunting Of Bly Manor for review, and so far, I think it’s pretty good.

Yet, I would argue that the first season of the show is a bit better as far as scares are concerned.

The Haunting Of Bly Manor feels more like a gothic horror set in the present day.

It’s a pretty novel idea and I like what Flanagan does with his interpretation of James’ novel.
