Netflix’s highly anticipated second season of The Haunting is here and there is a special phone number you can call to get extra creeped out.
It turns out that the phone number on the nanny job advert from the show actually works. If you call it, you can expect a truly creepy message from the children of the Wingrave family thanking you for your interest in their vacancy.
The show’s official Twitter account posted the advert, complete with phone number seeking “an au pair for two perfectly splendid children at Bly Manor”, and anyone interested should call the number provided.
Call +44 1273 915253
The phone message is as follows:
“Hi, you’ve reached the Wingrave family at Bly Manor. We’re not here right now,” the message begins.
“If you’re calling about the open nanny position, interviews will be conducted by our Uncle Henry in five days. It’ll be perfectly splendid. We can’t wait to meet you.”
One of the children then starts humming eerily, before the call ends itself.
The follow-up show to The Haunting Of Hill Housefollows the Wingrave family, who reside in the English countryside and find a new au pair to look after the children, Flora and Miles.
However, when their new guardian Dani starts the job, eery goings-on happen in the house that no one else can see.
The new show is loosely based on the 1898 Henry James novella The Turn of the Screw.
There’ll also be lots of familiar faces in the show as members of the Hill House cast return. Dani will be played by Victoria Pedretti (previously Nell), and will be joined by Henry Thomas, Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Kate Siegel.
The Haunting of Bly Manor is now streaming on Netflix.
