The Midnight Club - Official Teaser released (2022) Samantha Sloyan, Mike Flanagan, Leah Fong

As an ‘80s baby, my literary horror tastes consisted largely of Christopher Pike

and Stephen King from my pre-teen years into young adulthood,

so it’s no understatement when I say I couldn’t be more impressed

by The Haunting of Hill House creator Mike Flanagan’s career and filmography.

With two King adaptations under his belt (Gerald’s Game, Doctor Sleep),

Flanagan is gloriously tapping into Pike’s almost entirely unadapted bibliography

for the horror thriller The Midnight Club, his latest project geared

for the cross-section of genre hounds and Netflix subscribers.

As seen above, the first teaser shares a bit in common visually with both Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor, and hints at dark stories yet to be told.
