It is that time of the year and Netflix really said "trick or treat" this year! This year on Halloween, although the channel is treating us with a new series to watch, it is also tricking us into watching the new "horror," 'The Midnight Club'. In May 2020, it was announced that an adaptation of Christopher Pike's young adult novel 'The Midnight Club' would be created for Netflix by Mike Flanagan and Leah Fong. Life isn't perfect but the creators really proved to us that at least the series that we watch can be, as the project began production in March 2021, in Burnaby, British Columbia, and was planned to conclude in early September 2021, but actually finished production on September 10. The first two episodes of the series are directed by Flanagan, and other episodes in the season were helmed by directors Axelle Carolyn, Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour, Michael Fimognari, Morgan Beggs, and Viet Nguyen.

The new horror genre series has some promising talents as the cast is refreshingly new and stars Iman Benson, Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard, William Chris Sumpter, and Sauriyan Sapkota as the titular patients. Heather Langenkamp, Zach Gilford, Matt Biedel, and Samantha Sloyan have recurring roles. The new generation of actors are influential in their own way!
