Did You Know?


Although the main narrative draws primarily from "The Turn of the Screw," it also draws inspiration from other Henry James ghost stories, including "The Jolly Corner," "The Romance of Certain Old Clothes," "The Great Good Place," "The Pupil," ""The Two Faces", "The Way It Came" and "The Beast in the Jungle."

Bly Manor has North American early 20th century push button light switches and sockets throughout the building despite being set somewhere in Essex, England. Buildings electrified in early 20th century England would have had toggle switches and round two pin sockets. By the 1980s, when the series is set, there would have been modern UK sockets and switches if the building had ever been rewired. Henry's office and Peter's flat have the correct UK switches.

Need to forget about Haunting of Hill House, it's a different beast altogether!!!
10 October 2020 | by mubarakthekingSee all my reviews

I loved this amazing show very much. I was expecting something like Haunting of Hill House, but it's very different. Later I understood that it's a love instead of a horror story and from there on I totally got lost into it. Flanagan has really done a fantastic job, but I think the marketing team messed up a little bit here. It should be marketed differently from the previous one because these two are actually two totally different genre stories.

I can't say much mostly because I am still lost in this beautiful love story and it's so freaking satisfying. I do say that the first 4 episodes could have been shorten into just 2 but it really picked up from episode 5. I also would say that I did miss the Bent -neck lady here but Episode 5 came really close. Last two episodes are real master pieces.

I really have nothing bad to say about this show... People just remember, forget about Haunting of Hill House before you watch this. It's a entirely different story.
