More small screen horror is on the way from Netflix and Mike Flanagan (“The Haunting of Hill House,” “The Haunting of Bly Manor”), with Flanagan directing every episode of “Midnight Mass.” It’s headed to Netflix later this year, and a companion book is also on the way.
Bloody Disgusting has learned that Titan Books will be releasing Midnight Mass: The Art of Horror this coming October, the official companion to Flanagan’s limited series.
“This beautiful in-depth coffee table book will be the first official tie-in to Flanagan’s work, featuring concept art, storyboards, costume designs, set photos and original interviews.”
“Midnight Mass: The Art of Horror is a large format hardback illustrated coffee table book featuring visual and written materials covering all elements of Intrepid Pictures’ Midnight Mass limited series. This book is the perfect gift for any horror fan and will contain a slew of behind-the-scenes and background material, such as scripts, commentary, and colour illustrations (photos, storyboards, and production art) throughout. Readers will gain an insightful understanding of how the show was made with interviews of the cast, crew, executive producer and creator and director.”
Written by Abbie Bernstein, the book will be published on October 19, 2021.
The seven-episode series follows an isolated island community experiencing miraculous events – and frightening omens – after the arrival of a charismatic, mysterious young priest.
Kate Siegel (“The Haunting of Hill House”) will star alongside Zach Gilford (The Purge: Anarchy) and Hamish Linklater (“Legion”). The cast also includes Annabeth Gish (The Haunting of Hill House), Michael Trucco (Hunter Killer), Samantha Sloyan (Grey’s Anatomy), Henry Thomas (The Haunting of Hill House), Rahul Abburi (Killer Ransom), Crystal Balint (The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco), Matt Biedel (Altered Carbon), Alex Essoe (Doctor Sleep), Rahul Kohli (Supergirl), Kristin Lehman (The Chronicles of Riddick), Robert Longstreet (Doctor Sleep), Igby Rigney (Blue Bloods) and Annarah Shephard.
Interesting to note, the project has ties to both Hush and Gerald’s Game. “Midnight Mass” was the book Maddie Young wrote in Hush, and it later appeared in Gerald’s Game.
The Netflix series “Midnight Mass” is created and directed by Intrepid Pictures’ Mike Flanagan and executive produced by Trevor Macy (Doctor Sleep, “The Haunting of Bly Manor”).
