On Monday, Netflix launched a teaser trailer for its upcoming horror collection The Haunting of Bly Manor. The present, which hits the streaming service on Oct. 9, is a follow-up to The Haunting of Hill House, from creator Mike Flanagan and producer Trevor Macy.
Set in 1980s England, The Haunting of Bly Manor has all of the horrific home trappings: haunted dolls, creepy wells, grand structure, and unusual kids. Here’s the synopsis, straight from Netflix:
From The Haunting of Hill House creator Mike Flanagan and producer Trevor Macy comes THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR, the following extremely anticipated chapter of The Haunting anthology collection, set in 1980s England. After an au pair’s tragic loss of life, Henry Wingrave (Henry Thomas) hires a younger American nanny (Victoria Pedretti) to take care of his orphaned niece and nephew (Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) who reside at Bly Manor with the property’s chef Owen (Rahul Kohli), groundskeeper Jamie (Amelia Eve) and housekeeper, Mrs. Grose (T’Nia Miller). But all isn’t because it appears on the manor, and centuries of darkish secrets and techniques of affection and loss are ready to be unearthed on this chilling gothic romance. At Bly Manor, useless doesn’t imply gone.
Like The Haunting of Hill House earlier than it, The Haunting of Bly Manor is partly based mostly on a novel — Bly Manor is the setting of Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw. However, the studio mentioned it’s largely “based on the works of Henry James,” which implies it might be bigger in scope than simply the one novel.
