Mike Flanagan is associated with many of the horror titles on the streamer. Now the storyteller returns once again with yet another book adaptation to spine-chilling effects.

What’s the plot of The Midnight Club on Netflix? 

The series follows a group of seven terminally ill teenagers in a Rotterdam Home. The kids call themselves The Midnight Club because they share a horror story every night before bed. Knowing the harsh reality, they make a pact to stay in touch with each other from the other side even if they pass on, leaving the others. Shortly after, one of them dies. And strange events start taking place at the hospice.
