Renowned horror thriller creator Mike Flanagan’s limited series, Midnight Mass, will start streaming on September 24.
The official description of Mike Flanagan’s limited series Midnight Mass reads, ‘An isolated island community experiences miraculous events - and frightening omens - after the arrival of a charismatic, mysterious young priest.’ And this is pretty much what the trailer expands on.
The series tells the tale of a small isolated island community wherein everything is disturbed by the arrival of a disgraced young man (Zach Gilford) and a charismatic priest (Hamish Linklater). Zach’s character appears to be suffering from PTSD from something in his past that continues to haunt him. The sinister premise of the series looks promising, as it comes from the creator of the famous horror series The Haunting of the Hill House, and is set to stream on Netflix on September 24. The director is hoping to strike gold once again with the long-awaited Midnight Mass.
However, from the trailer it doesn’t look like there will be a lot of jumpscares, with the focus more on the mystery element. There will be seven episodes in the limited series and will feature Kate Siegal, 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. The series is executive produced by Flanagan and Trevor Macy for Intrepid Pictures.
The show was shot amid the pandemic, which proved to be quite the challenge for Flanagan, who completed it in December 2020, and said that it was one of the most difficult projects of his career.
