The premise of Midnight mass tells the story of a small and isolated island community. The island community is not a paradise at all and worsens when a disgraced young man (Zach Gilford) returns, as well as the arrival of a charismatic priest (HamishLinklater). When Father Paul’s appearance on Crockett Island brings unexplained and seemingly miraculous events, the community now sees his new flavor as a gift from God. However, is there more to the story? Do these miracles have a price?

The series is produced by Flanagan and Trevor Macy for Intrepid Photos.
The trailer shows us that Flanagan has a unique and special vision of telling horror stories. It also tells us that Netflix believes not only in this genre, but also in its narrative. Recently, Flanagan has this to say about the new series. “It is impossible to separate the Bible as a book from horror literature. It has it all there. It openly and unapologetically embraced supernatural and horrible events left and right. Even the hero of the story, God, the embodiment of love, drowns the world. when he gets mad enough in the Old Testament “
Flanagan was raised Catholic and served as an altar boy in his parishes on Governors Island in New York and in Bowie, Maryland. Clearly, her story greatly inspired the story and the setting. “It’s not just about Catholicism, it’s about the traditions of all of our religions, especially those that go back to the ancient world,” says Flanagan. “The ancient world was a bloody, violent and terrifying place where we didn’t understand nature or the weather, or whether we would live through the night or the season. And every natural function of the planet could be made to feel like a supernatural attack.”
After watching the new trailer, what do you think? Does it seem like we have another hit on our hands? Based on the latter two, Netflix is most likely working on more horror projects in the future.
