What is The Haunting of Bly Manor based on?
Bly Manor is based on the the 1898 novella The Turn of the Screw by Henry James.
The story is about a young woman who moves to the English countryside to care for two orphaned children.
While Hill House was the story of family struggle and trauma, Bly Manor is about broken hearts that never heal and tragic star-crossed romance.
Bly Manor intertwines more than one supernatural and love-centric story by Henry James, also including The Jolly Corner and The Romance of Certain Old Clothes.
What is the plot of The Turn of the Screw?
The Turn of the Screw tells the story of a young, inexperienced governess who is charged with the care of Miles and Flora, two small orphaned children abandoned by their uncle at his grand country house.
The governess sees the figure of an unknown man on the tower and his face at the window – she also sees a woman.
Mrs Grose, the housekeeper, identifies the man as Peter Quint (the master’s valet) and the woman as Miss Jessel (the former governess).
However – but both are dead.
Are The Turn of the Screw and The Haunting of Bly Manor based on a true story?
Fear not, Bly Manor is not a true story.
The good news is The Turn of the Screw isn't either, meaning we can all rest easy in our beds tonight.
However, the novella is widely considered one of darkest, most terrifying stories of all times, and makes for one brilliant ghost story.
When is The Haunting of Bly Manor on Netflix?
The second instalment in The Haunting anthology drops THIS FRIDAY (October 9, 2020).
You will be able to stream it from 8am on this day.
In the meantime you can watch The Haunting of Hill House now.
