Spooky rather than scary, this second season offering will hit your creepy side just right.
If you enjoyed The Haunting of Hill House, then you'll definitely want to head to Bly Manor for another binge-worthy series. Horror fans may find it too slow, but it's the perfect thing for people who want something that is eerie and beautifully shot rather than a shocking slasher movie.

This is a classic ghost story through and through, with slightly off-kilter kids, an imposing English manor house, and a murky lake that is almost a character in its own right. Set in the 1980s, it has a totally awesome soundtrack and costumes that will have you reaching for your acid-wash jeans.
The show remains one of the most popular on Netflix since its debut earlier this month. That may be because you'll want to watch it over again, to pick up things that you may have missed the first time around.
British actress T'Nia Miller is one of the most memorable stars of the season, and her story arc will keep you guessing.
Episode 5 of #TheHauntingofBlyManor is so unbelievably good. And #TNiaMiller is extraordinary in it. A true treat. Thanks @flanaganfilm and company for this terrific, beautifully tragic, moving and eerie chapter in the story. On to the next one! pic.twitter.com/7HQMgmel9p— Thijs Brandhof (@thijsbrandhof) October 10, 2020
The ending may seem formulaic, but it ties the story up beautifully. If it doesn't have you immediately re-streaming the first episode, then clearly you have no heart.
You can currently watch the entire season of The Haunting of Bly Manor on Netflix. You don't need to have watched The Haunting of Hill House to understand any of it, as the entire story stands on its own.
