The upcoming Netflix horror series is set on the isolated shores of an island, which starts to witness strange events when two new arrivals step foot on to it.
Netflix has dropped the trailer for its upcoming horror series Midnight mass, and it promises chills and dread in a short span of 71 seconds. The series, created and directed by Mike Flanagan, will have seven episodes and is set to premiere on Netflix, on September 24.
The series is set on a small island, isolated from the rest of the world. The calm of the community is disturbed on the arrival of two men, one a former islander with a past and the other a priest, oozing charisma. Inexplicable events, some miraculous in nature, occur at the arrival of the two. But the islanders soon discover that some of these miracles are omens in disguise.
The trailer starts off with a scene from the small town, a young man cycling past a church. We hear the voice of the priest in the background, preaching his take on mankind’s relationship with mysteries, a sermon of sorts for the viewers. What follows are snippets of increasingly terror-inducing imagery, including flickering lights, storms and a girl covered in blood. In the end, we see a close up shot of a deep red eye and hear the words ‘Who are you’ and the chilling response, ‘You know who I am’.
The new Netflix series is the brainchild of Mike Flanagan, who has made a name for himself in the horror genre with films like Absentia, Oculus, Hush, Before I Wake, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Gerald's Game and Doctor Sleep. He is also credited with creating the popular Netflix horror series The Haunting of Hill House and its subsequent stand-alone second season, The Haunting of Bly Manor. Flanagan also has another horror show coming up on Netflix as well, titled The Midnight Club.
