Pics of the Day

 Vanity Fair has our first look images at The Haunting of Bly Manor, the second Haunting series from Netflix and Mike Flanagan after 2018's The Haunting of Hill House -- this new series of episodes has several of the same actors (including our favorite fur monster Oliver Jackson-Cohen, seen above) returning as new characters in a tale that centers on several Henry James ghost stories, most specifically The Turn of the Screw, about a governess taking care of two children in a haunted house. 

That story has of course been adapted into a film several times, including a stone-cold classic with Deborah Kerr in The Innocents in 1961, and then not quite a stone-cold classic (although I think it's a little underrated) with Mackenzie Davis in The Turning last year. Anyway read what they've all got to say at VF (plus a few more images) and we'll see how this iteration works out some time this fall (they haven't set a specific release date yet).

All I have to contribute to this is I hope Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Rahul Kohli make out at some point this season.

OJC! Hoping his character is a bit more likable - and unclothed - than the last Haunting.

Rahul can’t be getting in shape for Zack Snyder’s Twilight of the Gods, because that’s animated. It’s a voice role.
