Mike Flanagan never ceases to amaze his fans. From Haunting of Hill House to Haunting of Bly Manor, he has always given us something spooky to look forward to. This Halloween, Flanagan is back with another scare fest, The Midnight Club. The more you learn about The Midnight Club, the more intrigued you are, and one step closer to binge-watching this show when it releases.
There is no doubt that October is going to be full of some scary surprises from creators all across the globe. However, fans have particularly high expectations from The Midnight Club, especially after Flanagan’s previous works have all been a raging success. Here’s everything you need to know about The Midnight Club before its release:
The Midnight Club is set at a hospice centre for terminally ill young teens, called Brightcliffe. If that doesn’t sound a little creepy already, let’s tell you a little more about it. The teens go through long days of treatment, and because they want to unwind after all that, they decide to get together at midnight. This premise explains the title, but here’s where the spooky part comes into play. All of them get together not to talk about their stressful days, but instead to share scary stories and remember those who are no longer with them.
If you’ve watched any of Mike Flanagan’s shows before, you know he will stop at nothing to scare his audiences. So we know that these stories and their consequences will surely keep you up at night.
Mike Flanagan tends to repeat his cast members over his different series as they portray different roles. For example when Rahul Kohli played a chef in The Haunting of Bly Manor and a police officer in Midnight Mass. The fans also enjoy a recurring cast but since The Midnight Club mainly consists of young adults, we might see some new faces and some familiar faces.
The cast will consist of Igby Rigney, Annarah Cymone, Zach Gilford, Matt Biedel, Samantha Sloyan, Crystal Balint, and Patricia Drake, all of whom have worked on one of Flanagan’s projects before Midnight Mass. Apart from these actors, we will also see the likes of Heather Langenkamp, Ruth Codd, Aya Furukawa and many more. Given this cast, now might be the right time to watch Midnight Mass just to familiarize yourself with some faces if you haven’t already.
Of course, considering this show is meant to scare you and keep you up all night, it will be released during the spookiest month of the year. Unlike most shows, Netflix will be releasing all 10 episodes of The Midnight Club at once, which means you won’t have to wait every week for a new episode. All episodes will release on the 7th of October. You can stream them on Netflix, just all most of Mike Flanagan’s series in recent years.
About three months ago, Netflix released a teaser trailer for The Midnight Club which was perfect for the fans as they now had something new to look forward to. The teaser kept the fans entertained for a while and two weeks ago, Netflix released the full trailer. Both these trailers will surely send a shiver down your spine and get you excited for the 7th of October.
While we try and recommend shows and films to anyone and everyone, horror is often a tricky genre. Since this show will consist of young adults, there is no doubt that teenagers can view this show, with certain content warnings in place. Of course, adults can view this show too. However, it might be pushing it a little too far for kids since some scenes can be a little too grim from time to time.
So adults, if you want to watch this show, maybe do it after you’ve put your kids to bed!
Yes! The show is based on horror novels written by Christopher Pike. Mike Flanagan grew up reading these books, so it is no shocker that inspiration struck and he decided to adapt them into a series. Christopher Pike will also be one of the executive producers on The Midnight Club, so rest assured, the adaptation will do justice to the original novels.
We can’t recommend this series enough even if we tried. The Midnight Club will be the reason you have some nightmares and if you are truly a horror fan, then this show is for you! as for horror newbies, Mike Flanagan is most certainly the creator that you want to begin your spooky journey.
