Halloween is around the corner, and Netflix has cataloged some spooky shows and movies to make the celebrations creepier. In the same stack, Netflix premiered a new horror drama, Midnight Mass, on September 24, 2021. Mike Flanagan is the creator and director of this show, who also made The Haunting of Hill House.
The 7-episode miniseries is ambitious, religious, unsettling, and worth streaming. It combines grief and faith to deliver breath-taking chills.
Midnight Mass Synopsis
Midnight Mass is about an isolated village on Crockett Island. The existing divisions of the village community
get amplified by the return of a disgraced young man and a charismatic priest. Father Paul’s arrival on the island coincides with strange, unseen, and seemingly miraculous events. The community, then, experiences a newfound religious fervor.
Why to watch?
The gripping, thought-provoking monologues that will leave you pondering as you finish the series are worth experiencing. Midnight Mass is a must-watch to delve deeper into the meaning of life, the flaws of man, and blind-faith in an unsettling yet profound way. The highly anticipated horror miniseries is also rich in cinematography and has a strong cast.
Midnight Mass Cast
The cast of the limited series includes Kate Siegel, Zach Gilford, Hamish Linklater, Henry Thormas, Kristin Lehman, Samantha Sloyan, Igby Rigney, Rahul Kohli, Annarah Cymone, Annabeth Gish, Alex Essoe, Rahul Abburi, Matt Biedel, Michael Trucco, Crystal Balint, and Louis Oliver.
Midnight Mass is being tagged as an emotionally moving horror series by fans. It’s leaving people in wonder along with fear. Interestingly, episode 5 is specifically receiving extreme reactions.

There’s one particular monologue by @k8siegel in #MidnightMass that absolutely broke me. It’s something I will think about for a very long time and I’m sure it’s already brought comfort to so many. Thank you @flanaganfilm and everyone involved in bringing this story to life 🙏🏻 pic.twitter.com/0T2ai3hfkD

There's a speech, at the end of #midnightmassnetflix – about, essentially, the meaning of life, that was of more comfort to me than any recent therapy session, any inspirational quote or religious dogma. IN A HORROR SERIES. Seriously, check it out.

Netflix needs to disable the ‘start next episode’ feature specifically for Ep 5 of Midnight Mass.

Midnight Mass Season 2
Being officially a miniseries, it is unlikely that the show will return for another season. The ending leaves no specific cliff-hangers but lingering thoughts where you question existence. The series has been receiving positive reviews, both from critics and audiences alike. So, we think that Netflix might commission newer horror shows around the theme that Midnight Mass followed. Though, a renewal is unfavorable.
