10 Best Horror TV Shows Of 2022
9. The Midnight Club
Mike Flanagan has fast become a household name in the realm of small-screen horror, what with his sublime work on Netflix's The Haunting series and also the outstanding Midnight Mass.
His latest, an adaptation of Christopher Pike's 1994 novel The Midnight Club - while also incorporating aspects of Pike's other works - continues Flanagan's impressive streak of telling seemingly familiar horror stories through a uniquely emotional, visceral lens.
If not quite reaching the heights of his prior shows, that's hardly much of a putdown, because this is still a tenaciously conceived series that manages to be both entertainingly spooky and a genuinely heart-wrenching meditation on mortality.
The young ensemble cast, composed primarily of lesser-known actors, are fantastic, while the adults include a bevy of Flanagan regulars - Henry Thomas, Alex Essoe, Rahul Kohli, and Zach Gilford - alongside the knowing presence of A Nightmare on Elm Street's Heather Langenkamp.
Unlike Flanagan's other TV forays, The Midnight Club is also intended to be a multi-volume series, though its renewal frustratingly hasn't yet been confirmed by the streamer.
