    Yeah I liked those as well (from what I remember), but they didn't really grip me like this, I'm pretty obsessed with cults and for instance people who go to mass every day without fail. And the whole angel vampire story I thought was brilliantly done.

    Yeah I fully agree

    I think that a lesser show runner could have really fumbled the Vampire aspect and made it feel silly and derivative but the way it was handled was amazing

    7/10 and its probably my third favorite out of the 3 Netflix series. That isn't a knock on it though, I just think his others were better. I also really like the slow burn of the first few episodes, but thought the ending fell short. If it would have had one more episode I think it could have fleshed some stuff out better. I thought most characters were well played, and the vampire was well done.

    That's because Kate Siegel is a brilliant actress & bloody beautiful. I'd watch her in pretty much anything.

    Yeah Henry Thomas! Dude is a very solid actor and he’s a big part of the Flanagan family- in all three of the Netflix series and Ouija and Gerald’s Game as well.

    Honestly Flanagan has been a huge deal for his career. He fell off for a bit after a good role in Gangs of New York. I thought he did an awesome job in Midnight Mass.

    Oh, for sure. Flanagan pretty much resurrected his career & he does a solid job in everything he's in.

    This guy’s output seems insane. He’s done so much stuff in the past eights years or so. Rare to see a filmmaker/show runner who is this prolific but also putting out this caliber of work.

    Oh, for sure. He's unusually prolific & it's all quality work. He's definitely one of my favorites working in the genre. Or really, in films/TV period regardless of the genre. I already count three of his films HUSH, GERALD'S GAME & DOCTOR SLEEP among my personal favorites of the past decade. And HILL HOUSE & MIDNIGHT MASS are classics of genre television.
    So, I'm happy that before we eventually get his Poe adaption ( probably sometime in 2023 ) we're going to get his anthology series THE MIDNIGHT CLUB sometime next year courtesy of his partnership with Netflix.

    Directors have their pick of pretty actresses to date, regardless of looks. They have a built in career advantage of working closely with them for several months at a time. Was she in anything notable before she worked with him?

    It started off kind of slow, midpoint until the final episode are very entertaining, well written and we'll acted. The ending falls off dramatically and is pretty awful. I'd give it a solid 9/10 up until the finale. Final episode is a 2/10.
