Netflix as we speak launched a primary look trailer on the Hill Home follow-up and revealed that every one 9 episodes will likely be arriving on October 9. Give the trailer a glance beneath, ideally with the lights dimmed and a few candles lit.
How refreshing it’s to be again within the spooky world of… “The Haunting of” franchise? It’s by no means been clear what we’re going to name this factor ought to it proceed on after Hill Home and Bly Manor. For now, nevertheless, we’re very a lot on the earth of Bly Manor. Simply as The Haunting of Hill House was based on the works of Shirley Jackson, Bly Manor will be based on the works of Henry James – most particularly James’s gothic romance basic The Flip of the Screw.

For starters, the entire thing is scored by a creepy rendition of “O Willow Waly,” which is a haunting music first composed for the 1961 movie The Innocents, which itself was based mostly on The Flip of the Screw. Then there may be the clip’s concentrate on creepy kids. The Haunting of Hill Home had no scarcity of haunted youngsters however the two kids right here, Flora and Miles (performed by Amelie Bea Smith and Benjamin Evan Ainsworth), are haunted haunted. Flora is so accustomed to issues that go bump within the evening that she impatiently shushes a ghost’s groans at trailer’s finish. The ghosts of Bly Manor are fairly impolite.
