We were supposed to get a new Halloween sequel with Jamie Lee Curtis, but COVID got in the way. But don’t fret. Borrowing the creative team and some cast members from The Haunting of Hill House, as Halloween season approaches fans of ghost stories can get their fix next month with Netflix’s The Haunting of Bly Manor. Loosely based on Henry James 1898 horror tale The Turn of the Screw (although we can’t yet see how), the series will offer up nine episodes.
Complete with that horror sub-genre of creepy little girls, The Haunting of Bly Manor was created by Mike Flanagan and stars Victoria Pedretti (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Henry Thomas (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Invisible Man), Kate Siegel (Oculus), T’Nia Miller (Years and Years), and Rahul Kohli (iZombie).
Check out this spooky trailer for The Haunting of Bly Manor:
Netflix has been the only cure for the theater closings this year because of the pandemic. Look for the Halloween vibe in the series The Haunting of Bly Manor exclusively on Netflix, October 9, 2020.
