Following the success of Mike Flanagan's The Haunting of Hill House, the next in the Haunting anthology is an adaptation of Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw.
Recruiting many of the same cast members from the Hill House installment, Bly Manor begins with Henry Wingrave (played by Henry Thomas) hiring a new caretaker in Dani Clayton (played by Victoria Pedretti), for his orphaned niece and nephew (Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) after the sudden death of their au pair. Dani soon experiences the supernatural horrors of Bly Manor and the insurmountable evil that exists within the walls.
The adaptation is set in the 1980's and appropriately enough, the trailer features a dramatic, appropriately eerie version of Mötely Crüe's "Home Sweet Home" as the soundtrack.
Unlike Hill House, Flanagan will be sharing the directorial responsibilities with the likes of Ciarán Foy (Sinister 2), Liam Gavin (A Dark Song), Yolande Ramke & Ben Howling (Cargo), and Axelle Carolyn (Tales of Halloween).
The Haunting Of Bly Manor premieres on Netflix on October 9, 2020. Watch the trailer below.
