At midnight mass, an isolated island community experiences miraculous events – and frightening omens – after the arrival of a charismatic and mysterious young priest.
The horror series will consist of seven episodes and will be produced by creator / director Flanagan and Macy (The Haunting Hill House, Oculus). The series was chosen during the television contract of Fleaagan and Macy's of Intrepid Pictures.
Flanagan's The Haunting of Bly Manor, the follow-up to the first season of his horror anthology series, The Haunting of Hill House, is currently under development.
The Haunting of Bly Manor is inspired by Henry James's psychological gothic horror novel, The Turn of the Screw, which takes place almost entirely in an old mansion. There, two young orphans are met by a young housekeeper for whom most of the story is told.
A modern reimagination of Shirley Jackson's iconic novel, The Haunting of Hill House Season 1, explored a group of siblings who, as children, grew up to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now, adults, and forced to unite in the face of tragedy, the family must finally face the ghosts of their past – some of which still lurk in their minds, while others may actually be chasing the shadows of Hill House. Created, directed, and executive produced by terror mastermind Mike Flanagan (Gerald's game), The Haunting of Hill House is a complex family drama wrapped in a scary horror story. Trevor Macy served as executive producer alongside Flanagan. Meredith Averill serves as co-showrunner and executive producer. Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank also produce.
