If you’ve seen the The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor and Midnight Mass, then you are more than familiar with Mike Flanagan’s work!
And looks like he’s back to amp it up with his own take of Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher with another Netflix miniseries.
Starring an impressive cast — most of which are familiar faces from Flanagan’s works — include Carla Gugino, Samantha Sloyan, Rahul Kohli, Flanagan’s beautiful wife Kate Siegel, and more, this series tells the story of a corrupt CEO who finds his children dead one by one in brutal ways. The show also compiles elements from Allan Poe’s other works as well.
“It’s crazy. It is unlike anything I’ve ever done, but in the other direction. My favorite way to describe it to people is like ‘Hill House’ is kind of a string quartet, and ‘Bly Manor’ is this delicate, kind of beautiful piece of classical piano music, and ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’ is heavy metal. It’s rock and roll,” says Flanagan.
And it sure is. Mark your calendars for October 12!
