Created by Mike Flanagan, Netflix's horror-drama web series, The Haunting of Bly Manor released yesterday. The show is loosely based on the 1898 horror novella The Turn of the Screw by Henry James.
So, in case you're wondering how good or bad the show is and if it's worth your time, here are some tweets that you can read before making your choice.
Why is #BlyManor so good that I can't turn it off and go to bed even though I am dead tired— 👻🎃Spooky Comrade Kat 🌹 (@breakavector) October 10, 2020
#BlyManor @RahulKohli13 finished BINGE watching Bly Manor. (it's freaking 6am rn) pitching in to say 1. IM IN FLOODS OF TEARS. 2. You absolutely killed it dude. the whole cast did - but I'm a longtime izombie fan and when I saw you on screen i was like 'RAHUL'. A++++— Keira (@artlefty) October 10, 2020
All said and done, Bly Manor is an objectively cool story but it’s no Hill House. No emotional connection to the characters. Hill House was about a family, stricken by grief and (not) healing from trauma, who were haunted. Bly Manor is just a ghost story. @haunting #BlyManor— Bobby Light (@B0BBY_LIGHT) October 10, 2020
Yeah I wanted all of #BlyManor in one day and WOW. That was BEAUTIFUL.— Brittany S. Pierce (@damnithannah) October 10, 2020
I really can't stop thinking about how wonderful #BlyManor was. I was scared that it'd only live in the great shadow cast by #HillHouse, but it was deeply complex, intense, and it carried the torch with magnificent ease. I'm still in awe of the effect Bly had on my emotions.— Julia (@pipzt3r) October 10, 2020

I will say that Hill House was more terrifying than Bly Manor. #BlyManor was a great story, just fantastic writing and great use of shots to try and find the hidden ghosts. That ending 🥺
#BlyManor isn’t just a ghost story. It’s also very emotional.😭— My Clever Detective🤡🎈🇨🇦 (@LittleUrchin666) October 10, 2020
