Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House) is bringing another horror series to Netflix in the form of Midnight Mass—and the key art from the series tells us to “be not afraid.” Somehow, we don’t believe it…
Flanagan directed all seven episodes of Midnight Mass, which tells the tale of a small, isolated island community whose existing divisions are amplified by the return of a disgraced young man and the arrival of a charismatic priest. When Father Paul’s appearance on Crockett Island coincides with unexplained and seemingly miraculous events, a renewed religious fervour takes hold of the community. But do these miracles come at a price?
Midnight Mass’s cast includes Zach Gilford (The Purge: Anarchy), Hamish Linklater (Legion), Kate Siegel (Hush), Crystal Balint (Shut In), Matt Biedel (Phoenix Forgotten), Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes), Annarah Cymone (The Midnight Club), Annabeth Gish (The Haunting of Hill House), Rahul Kohli (iZombie), Kristin Lehman (The Chronicles of Riddick), Robert Longstreet (Doctor Sleep), Igby Rigney (F9), Samantha Sloyan (Hush), Rahul Abburi (Kidnapped by a Classmate), Michael Trucco (Hush), and Henry Thomas (The Haunting of Hill House). Flanagan and Trevor Macy executive produced the series for Intrepid Pictures.
Attend the Midnight Mass on Netflix from September 24th.
