Hello movie fans! Things are starting to cool down outside, and the release schedule is doing the same! But the horror releases continue to be strong kicking off this week with Netflix’s The Haunting of Bly Manor. Based on Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw, The Haunting of Bly Manor follows American au pair, Dani (Victoria Pedretti) in England, who lands a job taking care of two kids who live in a giant mansion, and whose parents are mysteriously dead. Once settled in, Dani starts to notice the children, Flora (Amelie Bea Smith) and Miles (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) behaving very strangely and that there may be much more to the mysteries in Bly Manor that she first though. And those mysteries may end up claiming Dani as another soul lost to Bly Manor.

The Haunting of Bly Manor is produced by Mike Flanagan, the brilliant director behind The Haunting of Hill House, Oculus and the recent Midnight Mass on Netflix. Bly Manor is not as scary as The Haunting of Hill House, but is packed with great performances across the board, amazing production design and Flanagan’s trademark never ending sense of dread. Those looking for a good October series to binge to get in the Halloween spirit, The Haunting of Hill House is a perfect treat.

Also of note this week is a new 4K special edition of Dario Argento’s brilliant 1975 Giallo film Deep Red, featuring beautiful packaging, tons of extras and a stunning new 4K transfer. Also check out the new Dev Patel period dark adventure The Green Knight, Ryan Reynolds in the fast-paced action-comedy Free Guy, and a new Arrow special edition of Ridley Scott’s beloved 80s fantasy film Legend starring Tom Cruise and Tim Curry.

Until next week movie lovers, stay safe!
