The Haunting of Bly Manor – He Watched, He Cried, He Wrote

Rating (2 out of 5)

Summary: My first blog back after a hiatus, and I am going it short. This is a slow and painful haunting story. The second to last episode kills any hope of redeeming the series.

“Bly Manor” is simple a spin off of the Haunting of Hill House, even featuring many same actors. However, “Bly Manor” offers nothing new where “Haunting” offered some interesting camera shots and scary moments.

I would watch this if you want to come away with a few laughs. Over Thanksgiving, the family couldn’t help but say “Perfectly Splendid”, or “She would wake, she would wake, she would sleep” throughout the weekend in jest.

Plot: Dani (Victoria Pedretti) becomes nanny of two children at “Bly Manor”, which is haunted by ghosts.
