Terrifying new horror series from 'Haunting of Hill House' creators is coming to Netflix
I'm not the most stoic of horror fans at the best of times, but the Haunting of Hill House was responsible for many a sleepless night in my house.
Even if I wasn't watching the show myself (which happened quite a lot), I'd be holed up in my room and still hear the terrified screams of my room mates from the TV downstairs. So the idea of another season of the show was nerve-wracking enough, but now I've got another terrifying season to look forward to from the same minds.
Here's the horrifying trailer, just to get you in the mood:
That's because Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy, the (totally sound) minds behind the Haunting of Hill House, are teaming up with Netflix once more to give us a brand new television show, which sounds really sweet and romantic, funnily enough. Just kidding: Midnight Mass sounds absolutely horrifying.
The show will reportedly follow the story of an isolated island, which starts to experience some creepy happenings and miraculous events after the arrival of a charismatic (but mysterious) young priest. Think the Wicker Man, but with fewer bees and hopefully a similar number of appearances of Nicolas Cage in a bear costume.
Flanagan will direct and Macy will be producer once more, and we're almost as excited for Midnight Mass as we are for the second instalment of the Haunting series.
Titled The Haunting of Bly Manor, season two will reportedly centre around Henry James' The Turn of the Screw, where a governess is tasked with taking care of two siblings in a manor house which will definitely not turn out to be haunted or anything.
Victoria Pedretti is already down to return to the show having featured in season one, but we still don't know too much about the show just yet. What we do know is that it'll be bloodcurdlingly terrifying. Might as well stock up on sleep while I have the chance, because I'm not going to be able to get it for a while, I assume.
