New ‘Midnight Mass’ Trailer Reveals More About The Mysteries of Crockett Island

Mike Flanagan, master of emotional horror, is back at it again with his new Netflix series, Midnight Mass. Information about the show has been rather cryptic. Both Flanagan and Netflix teased the show with vague messages about miracles and coming home. Now, the latest trailer gives us more insight into the people of Crockett Island and the strange religious interloper who has disrupted their way of life.

Here’s the synopsis for Midnight Mass:

From The Haunting of Hill House creator Mike Flanagan, Midnight Mass tells the tale of a small, isolated island community whose existing divisions are amplified by the return of a disgraced young man (Zach Gilford) and the arrival of a charismatic priest (Hamish Linklater). When Father Paul’s appearance on Crockett Island coincides with unexplained and seemingly miraculous events, a renewed religious fervor takes hold of the community – but do these miracles come at a price?

When the show was first announced in August, Flanagan took to Twitter to explain just how important this series is to him and his own journey with addiction. In a statement, he said, “As a former altar boy, about to celebrate three years of sobriety, it’s not hard to see what makes this so personal. The ideas at the root of this show scare me to my core.”

He also went on to say that “Midnight Mass is my favorite project so far.”

There are quite a few familiar faces in the trailer of Midnight Mass, such as Kate Spiegel and Rahul Kohli who’ve previously worked with Flanagan (Spiegel is also his wife). Like his previous work on The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor, Flanagan has created another ensemble piece that allows him to dig into the psychology of all of his characters, something he has quite a talent for.

The trailer also features a creepy cover of Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know.” But the song takes on a new, sinister meaning as the lyrics begin to mix with haunting orchestral music.

The seven-episode limited series also stars Rahul Abburi, Crystal Balint, Matt Biedel, Henry Thomas, and Michael Trucco. The series is executive produced by Flanagan and Trevor Macy for Intrepid Pictures.

Midnight Mass is available on to Netflix September 24, 2021.
