The wait is almost over for Mike Flanagan’s much-anticipated follow-up to The Haunting of Hill House. A new setting and characters await in The Haunting of Bly Manor, but in the spirit of all good horror anthologies, it looks like the levels of dread and terror will be just as satisfying. Exhibit A: the episode titles!

You’ll see some flashes of this season’s Henry James inspiration in these titles, which were tweeted out today with mysterious bits of context and extremely creepy imagery for each.

A creepy doll. Broken glasses. Soggy footprints. “We could fade at any time.” And it sure looks like that as-yet unnamed episode eight is a solid candidate for “most likely to make you pee your pants in fright,” though frankly the whole damn thing looks extremely unsettling. By that, of course, we mean we can’t wait to binge the whole thing ASAP. The Haunting of Bly Manor hits Netflix on October 9.

Episode 8 is blank, but fans on Twitter already figured out what is spells out: “The Romance of Certain Old Clothes,” another Gothic horror story by Henry James.

The other titles are also from Henry James short stories: “The Great Good Place,” “The Pupil,” “The Way It Came,” “The Two Faces,” “The Altar of the Dead,” “The Jolly Corner,” “The Beast in the Jungle,”
