Horror fans have spent the weekend rabidly consuming Midnight Mass, the new Netflix series from the wonderfully warped mind of The Haunting of Hill House creator Mike Flanagan.
But does it stack up to his past works? The results are, surprisingly, mixed. Many, it seems, are decrying the show’s slow-burn start, while others who stuck around long enough are calling it a classic. You can make up your own mind for yourself but, first, a taste of what Midnight Mass viewers have to say about the show – both the good and the bad.
“Wow. This was incredible. I wasn’t expecting anything this compelling but was pleasantly surprised. The writing is seriously stellar,” says one on Twitter of the show which revolves around a charismatic priest heading to a small island community – before things, predictably, take a horrific turn for the worse.
