Netflix Prepares Sequel to Haunting Of Hill House (Sort Of)

Anyone who’s seen Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House–despite it being only loosely based upon Shirley Jackson’s novel–likely recognize it as brilliant. Which is why news of a sequel isn’t a surprise, though what is is that instead of tackling another version Jackson’s novel Flanagan is basing the sequel, The Haunting Of Bly Manor on […]

Syfy Grounds The Nightflyer

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Syfy has cancelled Nightflyers, the sci-fi series based on the George R.R.
