The Haunting of Bly Manor – Blu-ray Edition

Aired in 2020, this television series, while not as good as The Haunting of Hill House, was still very watchable. Sprung from the mind of Mike Flanagan, the same man responsible for Hill House, this is another scary one. Henry Thomas and Carla Gugino are also back for this second kick at the horror can.

Strange things are happening at the Bly Manor. A man needs someone to look after his niece and nephew so he decides to hire a young governess. Once she arrives at Bly Manor, the family estate, odd things begin to happen. Soon after the horrible history of the family begins to be found out.

The build up is slow here. Like most ghost/haunting stories. It needs to reel you in until it has you exactly where it needs you. Then whamo! The creepy stuff begins to happen and you are in the right state of mind to be creeped out. It will not only have the hairs on the back of your neck standing up but will also have you checking in the closets and under the bed as you go to sleep. Just to be sure…
