October is a very operational month. You can notice a lot of creators hosting contests, challenges to improve skills and positive approach in that particular field. Apart from this, October is famous for its spookiness. We all must have heard the term Halloween, we’ve seen movies, cartoons or read books where kids dress up in costumes, mostly the eerie kind and go around asking for trick or treats, finally someone ends up getting killed and the ghost unveils its story or something mysterious occurs. Halloween’s origin takes us 2000 years back to the land of Celts, now parts of Ireland, Uk and Northern France. This ancient Celtic festival of Samhain is popularly celebrated on the last night of October also in other countries like the United States, etc,. And if you are a horror fan, this month is going to be yours, because this is the season to get scared. One of the most anticipated releases of the month is Netflix’s The Haunting of Bly Manor.
The Haunting of the Bly Manor is the follow-up series of Haunting of the Hill House, that is more like a 2nd season but no more Crain Family from the Hill House, rather a brand new story based on a vague adaptation from the 1898 novella The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James. The first season wasn’t just capable of sending chills down your spine, but the story was also an enthralling ride of emotions. Thus the expectations of the follow-up season is very high and it’s likely to even exceed the impact of its forerunner.
This show will be out on Netflix globally on the 9th October and it’s official opening title was released yesterday, leaving the fans mesmerized and curiously blood-curdled. The background score’s aura is bewitching. You can check it out for yourself by clicking the social icons below.
