The Plot of The Haunting of Bly Manor
The love we have for our family, gives us the courage to do anything for them. Set in a picturesque country side locale in England is the Bly Manor – a majestic house full of secrets. Dani Clayton, hired by uncle Henry Wingrave, to look after Flora and Miles Wingrave. Who’s parents had recently died. Dani managed to make her own place in the manor. The stories of the previous au pair who drowned in the lake, continues to haunt her!
The first few nights went past without a flaw. Soon everything starts to get a bit eerie and weird. Miles takes on a totally different personality and Flora constantly seems to be talking to thin air. As the story progress, we’re taken back and forth from the past to the present, which works quite well for the story.
Introduced as a sister series to Hill House. The Haunting of Bly Manor, ensures to keep up to its predecessor in all aspects. The director Mike Flanagan has done a excellent job in shooting the series. From the location to the character and even the dialogues, everything adds to the plot-line. The Haunting of Bly Manor was supposed to be a supernatural/horror/drama, unfortunately it does not deliver on the supernatural and horror part. If you keep looking for those scares, you aren’t going to get it. The story, follows an emotional route. All characters, display their feelings very well. Having said this curiosity churns to know what the makers might come up with next.
