Ryan Murphy’s New Horror Series ‘Ratched’ Hits Netflix In September

Sarah Paulson has been well-known by her amazing performances on American Horror Story and now she’ll be back at it with Ratched.

This new horror series coming to Netflix this Fall. It works as a prequel for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which was starred by Jack Nicholson in 1975.

Murphy and Romansky’s Netflix series Ratched, explores the story of Mildred Ratched in her early days as a nurse, 20 years prior to the events of the book and classic film. She arrives in California in the 1940s until she became the head nurse of the psychiatric hospital where unsettling experiments are practiced on the human mind.

Ratched appears to be how a dedicated nurse should be, someone who is gentle and takes care of everyone. She tries to show herself as a perfect person but deep down is capable of committing the most gruesome crimes.

In an interview with Vanity Fair about Ratched’s character, Murphy said,  “I feel like Nurse Ratched is sort of a shorthand for barbarism. She became almost like a catchphrase for any sort of institutional abuse of power. What was interesting was trying to create an emotional character from a reputation that’s very cold…trying to figure out every little detail about her childhood, her relationships, her sexuality. Because when people think of Ratched, they think of her as shutoff and cruel and uncaring.”

Paulson also stated, “I identified very deeply with her loneliness. I think ultimately at the end of the day, that is sort of what drives Mildred. “A pursuit of survival and of finding some sense of home. Even though the methods that she chooses to achieve that internal security are somewhat questionable, I would argue that she’s doing them with a potentially selfish need, but a survival need nevertheless. Sort of an animal need that blinds her to the inappropriateness of some her actions.”

Ratched will consist of 8 episodes and it’ll be premiering on Netflix next September 18th.

Second Season Has Been Confirmed

While the series are yet to come to the streaming plataform, a second season has already been confirmed. Back in 2017, Murphy sign with Netflix to bring a long list of upcoming shows, among the 11 projects, Ratched was granted a two-season order.

Besides Paulson, there’s a great cast composed by stars Cynthia Nixon (Gwendolyn Briggs), Judy Davis (Nurse Betsy Bucket), Sharon Stone (Lenore Osgood), Jon Jon Briones (Dr. Richard Hanover), Finn Wittrock (Edmund Tolleson), Charlie Carver (Huck), Alice Englert (Dolly), Amanda Plummer (Louise), Corey Stoll (Charles Wainwright), Sophie Okonedo (Charlotte), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Gov. George Wilburn).

“By the time you get to the end of the first season, you will not wonder how and why Mildred became the way she did. You may question her actions, you may have judgment about it—but you will understand it. It will make sense to you.” Paulson added to Vanity Fair.

The series will show us Ratched most hideous side and also most vulnerable. We can expect lots of drama, action, suspense and moments full of terror that will make more than one to not sleep at night.

Here’s the trailer for the upcoming series!

The Haunting of Bly Manor: Plot, Cast, Release Date, and More

The Haunting of Hill House is an American anthology supernatural horror drama web television series which premiered on Netflix in 2018. Directed by Mike Flanagan, it became a massive success and since the first season left the audience asking for more, the creator decided to give them what they wanted, which is now one of the most anticipated series of 2020, The Haunting of Bly Manor.  

All those characteristics that made its predecessor one of the greatest horror series on the streaming platform, will continue to be present in this second season but of course, with a different story and characters. Here’s what we know about the upcoming season:


The Haunting of Hill House was based in gothic horror novel by American author Shirley Jackson published in 1959. For Bly Manor though, it’ll be based on the 1898 horror novella The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. And the book is as creepy as the one used for Hill House.

The plot hasn’t been established yet but we can get an idea based on James’ horror novela. The Turn of the Screw tells the story of a governess in charge of two children in a Victorian mansion.

These kids have just experienced a traumatic situation as their former governess died under strange circumstances and who also had a turbulent relationship with another of the house workers. The new teacher, trying to understand what actually happened in the mansion, begins to hear voices and to see her predecessor and the servant.

While The Turn of the Screw will be used as the ‘backbone’ of this season, Flanagan confirmed they will also play with other stories by James such as The Jolly Corner and The Romance of Certain Old Clothes.


While The Haunting of Bly Manor will have new characters, it will also feature the return of several actors from the previous season. However, the narratives of the two series will not be connected. Among them, Victoria Pedretti (Nell Crain) as the governess, Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Luke Crain), Kate Siegel (Theo Crain), Henry Thomas (Hugh Crain) y Catherine Parker (Poppy Hill).

For the new faces, Rahul Kohli has joined Bly Manor together with T’Nia Miller, Amelia Eve, and young actors Amelie Smith and Benjamin Ainsworth have also been added to the cast.

Release date

Bly Manor is expected to be scarier than Hill House. Flanagan told Birth.Movies.Death, “We’re looking at all the ghost stories of Henry James as the jumping-off point for the season, so it very much is a whole new deal. It’s a cool way to expand on some of the things I loved about Season 1, but within the framework of a new story, without having to be restrained by the decisions we made last time. For Henry James fans, it’s going to be pretty wild, and for people who aren’t familiar with his work, it’s going to be unbelievably scary. I already think it’s much scarier than Season 1, so I’m very excited about it.

The production started back on September 30th, 2019 and it is expected to hit Netflix later this year.

Flanagan confirmed that the series continues with its scheduled premiere in 2020. The filming for Bly Manor was able to be completed before all productions were pushed back due to the pandemic and that his post-production team has been working to get the series ready virtually. Many believe that it will premiere in October just like they did with the first season in 2018.

“I don’t expect to be delayed one bit. We didn’t really miss a step. We’ve been jamming through [post-production]. It’s been going great. It’s definitely later this year. It’s not going to get kicked off until 2021 or anything.” Said Flanagan in a podcast interview.

While we still don’t have a release date yet, we are completely sure that The Haunting of Bly Manor will be every bit as frightening and smart as The Haunting of Hill House was.

8 Dark And Disturbing Cartoon Theories That Will Creep You Out

Many of us are happy to believe that our favorite childhood cartoons are totally innocent. However, there are some dark theories that try to prove what is hidden behind the cartoons.


In the first episode, the life of Ash, the main character, seems quite normal but then, he has an accident while riding his bicycle.

He wakes up from the accident and suddenly his world changes. Ash begins to travel the world and has fantastic adventures which involves training and fighting against peculiar creatures that are called Pokemon. However, there’s a curious twist. No matter which new city he visits, the same nurse always shows up.

The theory goes that Ash never actually woke up from the accident and fell into a coma instead. Subconciously, he created the world of Pokemon in his head.


Angelica is the only girl that actually existed. Everyone at the cartoons are babies and it is said they are a product of her imagination. The story goes that Angelica is sad and alone because her mother works so much and doesn’t have time for her.

That’s when her began to imagine lifeless babies were her friends. That’s why she is the only one who can speak to them. She was very happy when her cousin, Tommy Pickles was born because she would have someone to play with, but unfortunately he lost his life shortly after birth. The reason why Tommy’s father, Stu, never leaves the basement is because of that. He stays there making toys for his child that will never be able to play.

Chuckie passed away in a car accident along with his mom, and for that his dad is always paranoid most of the time just like Chuckie, who is a bundle of nerves at the cartoon.

Regarding Phil and Lil, there were never two brothers in the first place but only one baby who wasn’t born. Angelica never knew if the baby was going to be a girl or a boy, so she came with the idea of twins of different genres.

Ed, Edd n Eddy

There’s a very popular theory that Ed, Edd, n Eddy are actually ghosts and stucked in purgatory. This could explain why there are no adults on the show, why the series seems to take place in their little dead end and the reason they have blue tongues (tongues can turn bluish upon death).

The children in the cartoon are from different time periods, but they have in common that they passed away in the same neighborhood.


This is a heartbreaking theory which assumes that Jon and Odie don’t exist. Garfield is a homeless cat who is actually starving and is only picturing Jon and Odie. There was a reference to this in a Halloween-themed comic. Garfield woke up in an abandoned house and started calling Odie and Jon, but there was no answer. He then goes crazy and continues having illusions about the family that he never had.

Hello Kitty

Legend has it that this cute kitten was created in 1970 by a Chinese woman. Her daughter was diagnosed with mouth cancer. Doctors informed the mother that nothing could be done for her daughter and was going to leave very soon. The woman was devastated but unwilling to let her go.

The woman started to visit many churches, prayed over and over for a miracle and made many promises. Nonetheless, her daughter’s condition was getting worse every day. It seemed that nothing could save the little girl. The distraught mother decided to take her last resort and made a pact with the devil.

In order to save his daughter’s life, the devil only asked for one thing. The mother must create a character that was famous worldwide. Satan wanted to attract as many people as possible and gain new followers who would do everything for him. By buying this character, it would be an involuntary way to say “yes” to the evil one.

This is why the cat was designed without a mouth as a symbol of the girl’s cancer. The name was in honor of the devil because the word “Hello”, is a typical greeting and “Kitty” in Chinese means “demon”. So, “Hello Kitty” is actually a way to say “Hello Demon”.

The Fairly OddParents

It is said that Timmy has schizophrenia and his magical godparents are a representation of antidepressant medicine. They are there to help him with his problems but only until he no longer needs them. Also, not only did they started to appear at the same time as his problems but there are some serious side effects every time he abuses of their magic.


A rather awful theory alleges that the adorable yellow Minions were inspired by Jewish children adopted by Nazi scientists for the sole purpose of using them in gas experiments. There’s a picture that tries to represent some of those children wearing masks used to dispense poison. It is rumored that the successful children’s film subliminally makes the public accept that ideology.

The Smurfs

It was speculated that the creator of the cartoon had made a pact with the devil to achieve success, so he dedicated the show to Satan. Also, the following are some coincidences found that can make you  think that this theory may be real.

The leader of the Smurfs is the only one who wears red clothes, as Papa Smurf represents the devil.

Though there are about 100 smurfs in the village, 7 of them are the main characters and ironically, they represent the deadly sins. Here are the names and which one represents each: Grouchy Smurf (Wrath), Greedy Smurf (Gluttony), Vanity Smurf (Pride), Hefty Smurf (Envy), Brainy Smurf (Greed), Lazy Smurf (Sloth) and Smurfette (Lust).

Gargamel seems to be the villain of the cartoon, however there’s this tale that says he was a kind of a monk and that he lived in a ruined church. He always tried to catch “demons”, that are the Smurfs, in this case. Also, the name of his cat “Azrael” is the same one as the Archangel of death.

Did you ever imagine there were such dark stories behind these cartoons?
