Series: The Haunting of Bly Manor
Available on: Netflix
Genre: Horror, Mystery
My Rating: 3.5/5 . . The Haunting of Bly Manor up by the 2018’s Haunting of Hill House is a loose adaptation of the novel “The Turn of the Screw,” written by Henry James in 1898. The three-century storyline was very clumsy till episode 7 and then all made sense.
After an au pair’s unfortunate death, Henry Wingrave (Henry Thomas) hires a Danni as the new nanny (Victoria Pedretti) to care for his orphaned niece and nephew (Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) who reside at Bly Manor with the estate’s chef Owen (Rahul Kohli), Gardner Jamie (Amelia Eve) and housekeeper, Mrs Grose (T’Nia Miller).
Dani, herself was running away from her past and trying to keep up with the kids and the grown-up talks. But all is not as it seems at the manor, and centuries of dark secrets of love and loss are waiting to be unearthed in this mystery gothic romance. At Bly Manor, dead doesn’t mean gone.
If you're already under blissful bathroom floor breakdown moments, avoid watching this, it's too complicated to keep up and makes you yawn. Perfect for a quick binge-watch, it's more of a sad love failure stories packed in a bundle and wrapped up on a ghost fabric. Last few minutes will make you be tissue box grabbing emotional
p.s: The haunting of hill house was one of the best thrillers to me, I got chills and yeah, a 103 degree of fever the next day too because I watched it alone at home.
