The Midnight Club

Netflix have had some stinkers, but they have also had some hits. One person they seem to get on with is Mike Flanagan. He created The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor and, most recently, Midnight Mass.

We reported a little while ago that Mark Hamill has been cast in Flanagan’s latest, The Fall of the House of Usher, but in between that he’s also created and directed The Midnight Club. There is now a teaser online.

The Midnight Club stars Samantha Sloyan, Zack Gilford, Igby Rigney, Heather Langenkamp, Matt Biedel, and Annarah Cymone. It’s been created by Flanagan and Leah Fong, who both worked on The Haunting of Bly Manor.

The story is based on a book by Christopher Pike, no, not that one, and takes place:

“…at Rotterdam Home, a hospice for terminally ill teenagers. A group of patients begin to gather together at midnight to share scary stories. They eventually make a pact that whichever of them dies first will contact the others from beyond the grave.”

The Midnight Club will be stream on Netflix on 7th October.

Cabinet of Curiosities

Another big name in horror is Guillermo del Toro, known for Blade 2, The Devil’s Backbone, Crimson Peak and both Hellboy movies. He has a new anthology series coming to Netflix.

There are some pretty impressive names in there, and here is a teaser for Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities.

When I see a name like Panos Cosmatos in there, I get a little exited, since both Beyond the Black Rainbow and Mandy were amazing! There is no news yet on when this will be out on Netflix.
