Thus, this production whose plot has been described as a cross between Buffy, the cazavampiros Y Twilight It already sounds like a sure success for the streaming giant, which will also bring the LGBTQ + community together once again, which for now continues to celebrate the launch of The Curse of Bly Manor – 90%.

It will be a story that at least deserves a look and also resonates with what was said by Catherine Hardwicke, the director of Twilight, earlier this year during an interview with Queerty.

Best of all, both the original story and the adaptation come from an experienced writer who has been able to prove success with works like Vicious and the series A Darker Shade of Magic that have had a great commercial performance.

First Kill it’s not the only thing Emma Roberts he has in his hands, since he has a television agreement with Hulu, thanks to which he will adapt the novel Tell Me Lies of Carola Lovering, in addition to other productions in which he will act, one of them being Holidate that will arrive direct to Netflix.
