NETFLIX SPOOKY SERIES
THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR
Although we live in some very spooky times as it is, I'm sure a lot of you still like to be a little frightened by the shows you watch. Two of such on offer today: first up, Netflix has revealed that their THE HAUNTING OF BLY
MANOR will air this Autumn as a spin off of their series The Haunting of Hill House based on Henry James' novel The Turn of the Screw but will have elements from his other novels too. Oliver Jackson Cohen will again lead the cast but this time in some other role.

The Story Takes Place mostly in 1987, starring Victoria Pedretti as the sunny American tutor Dani Clayton, who hopes to escape her own painful past by taking a job at the stately mansion looking after the Wingrave children — volatile Miles (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) and cheerful Flora (Amelie Bea Smith). Henry Thomas plays the wealthy uncle of the two orphaned children who wants little to do
with the estate or
the son and daughter of his late brother, but is content to support them
from afar, so long as he doesn’t have to visit the manor himself.
Oliver Jackson Cohen is his calculating business associate who tends to
take whatever he wants from Bly Manor, regardless of permission.

A FOUR DAY SPOOKY TV EVENT
There is another spooky series that is already airing over at Australian SBS in four consecutive nights this week. HUNGRY GHOSTS is a four
part mini series set among a Vietnamese Australian community where the trauma of the Vietnam War is reawakened in the form of ghosts. Starring, among others, legendary Bryan Brown, Clare Bowen and Ryan Corr, the supernatural drama explores three generations of Vietnamese Australian families, all haunted by the traumatic events of war, and opens on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Festival when a vengeful spirit is unleashed, bringing the dead with him. As the ghosts wreak havoc, reclaiming lost loves and repaying old grudges, a young woman who’s never taken responsibility for who she could be must finally step up and accept her destiny.
