Did You Know?


The Haunting of Bly Manor is a follow-up to the American anthology horror drama series The Haunting of Hill House (2018). While the creative team and many of the cast of Hill House are returning for Bly Manor, the narratives of the two series will not be connected. See more »


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.

People need to be more aware.
10 October 2020 | by durham100See all my reviews

So many people saying it isn't horror - well they are right. Haunted house tales are not horror, they are ghost stories. This is slow in building, atmospheric and extremely intelligent. The performances are wonderful, the kids especially, and once you get to where the characters don't know where they are in the story you will really need to think. This is everything a ghost story should be. For those diappaointed check out The Haunting from 1963 - you don't see a single spook or apparition in that movie but to this day it still scares the heck out of me. That is a ghost story. Horror movies are lazy, they don't require the viewer to do anything because they just aim to make you jump or gross out. Ghost stories however, they get the hairs on your neck prickling up and make you check behind you now and again - just in case. This is great stuff and I hope so much there will be more. Well done to all involved.
