Halloween is right encircling the corner, and it wouldn’t be the creepy season without a Mike Flanagan horror series. This October the famous genre director is giving horror fans an alteration of the Christopher Pike novel The Midnight Club.
There are so many reasons to get agitated about this YA terror full of ghost stories, but potentially the main reason is that horror legend Heather Langenkamp will be featured in Midnight Club. Now, with just one decompress week away, the Netflix series has released a new fearfully teaser featuring Langenkamp’s role in this nightmare.
The teaser, posted by Langenkamp on Twitter, takes us through the halls of Brightcliffe Hospice which will be horror fans’ creepy new home in The Midnight Club’s 10 episodes. Her minder character talks about the provision of extending a safe environment for their ill-fated youths.
Talking directly to the viewers, she acts like we will be her next patient. We will be able to “write our own ending,” but the unsettling imagery that lurks in the shadows of this teaser tells a completely different scary narrative.
Something is assuredly off with Brightcliffe and, while this is a series prepared for a younger audience with the classic hook of telling demons stories, The Midnight Club’s bumps in the night arrive to be more than just fiction.
Across with Langenkamp, The Midnight Club stars Iman Benson, Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, Aya Furukawa, William Chris Sumpter, Annarah Cymone, and Sauriyan Sapkota. Frequent Flanagan collaborators Zach Gilford, Matt Biedel, Rahul Kohli, and Samantha Sloyan have roles in the series as well.
The Midnight Club premieres on Netflix on October 7. Before then, you can watch the Langenkamp-centric trailer down below. You can also catch up on Flanagan’s past work by adding The Haunting of Bly Manor and Gerald’s Game on Netflix.
