After The Haunting of Bly Manor, Mike Flanagan will be back on Netflix soon.
Well, even after this teaser, we really don’t know much about Midnight mass, the new series from Mike Flanagan, director of the twin series The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor and of Doctor Sleep, the sequel to Shining. Not even a Netflix broadcast date. Misery! These six seconds of video take us on a ferry to Crockett Island, “thirty miles from the mainland and with only two boats a day”. In the words of Netflix, Midnight Mass is set in “a community that witnesses miraculous events and terrifying portents when a mysterious priest arrives.” At the casting Midnight mass is Flanagan’s circle of faithful: Kate Siegel (co-writer of the two The Haunting), Henry Thomas (The Haunting’s dad), Annabeth Gish (Clara in The Haunting of Hill House), Samantha Sloyan (Leigh in The Haunting of Hill House)… A community affair, indeed.
