Mike Flanagan’s new horror series

Mike Flanagan does it again with his next series The Midnight Club, created for Netflix. Flanagan has some very impressive notches on his horror belt, including the likes of The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass, and Doctor Sleep. He does not seem The Midnight Club is far from this pedigree.

The official plot synopsis from Netflix is ​​as follows:

In a hospice with a mysterious history, the eight members of the Midnight Club gather every night at midnight to tell spooky tales – and search for signs of the supernatural beyond. A new horror series from Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy’s Intrepid Pictures (The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass) and Leah Fong, based on the creative work of bestselling author Christopher Pike.

The trailer has a kind of teen horror vibe to it, but it somehow manages to walk a tightrope perfectly. There’s no shortage of genuine scares at all, from interesting creature design to a legitimately suspenseful atmosphere. The novel on which the series is based, also called The Midnight Club, is a teenage horror novel by Christopher Pike. Teen horror can sometimes include an added challenge, as you need to make sure it’s scary enough for everyone, but the content is still suitable for teenagers. Thankfully, the trailer seems to show Flanagan pulling it off beautifully.

The series itself will premiere on Netflix on October 8 and will consist of 10 episodes. There’s also a pretty exciting horror cameo for all you big horror nerds out there watching. Heather Langenkamp plays the owner of the hospice.
