‘Midnight Mass’ Teaser: Mike Flanagan Returns With Another Haunting Series At Netflix

Is there such a thing as the Flanagan-verse? Perhaps there should be, connecting all of his hit horror shows and films? The Haunting of Hill House and Haunting of Bly Manor filmmaker, who also recently helmed The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep, is back at Netflix for Midnight Mass which should be a treat for Flanagan’s legion of fright fans.

The seven-episode series takes place in a small, religious island community that gets all riled up by the return of a disgraced young man, played by Zach Gilford, and the arrival of a charismatic priest, played by Hamish Linklater. Helping to whip up the townsfolk into a fervor is a series of miraculous events that could come at a deadly price.

We see some graphic images in this brief teaser, including a dead cat on a beach. Well, that’s ominous.

In a statement from Flanagan, the filmmaker said, “I’m just going to admit it… Midnight Mass is my favorite project so far. As a former altar boy, about to celebrate 3 years of sobriety, it’s not that hard to see what makes this so personal.”

Also in the cast are Kate Siegel, Rahul Abburi, Crystal Balint, Matt Biedel, Alex Essoe, Annarah Cymone, Annabeth Gish, Rahul Kohli, Kristin Lehman, Robert Longstreet, Igby Rigney, Samantha Sloyan, Henry Thomas, and Michael Trucco. Midnight Mass hits Netflix on September 24th.
