Description

The best and spookiest season starts in earnest, this year on Talking Scared. 

Our guest is Jamie Flanagan, actor, screenwriter, and part of the team who delivered such televisual delights as The Haunting of Bly Manor, Midnight Mass and now, The Midnight Club.

With The Midnight Club due to land on Netflix worldwide this Friday – I rejigged the schedule to sneak in a chat with Jamie about his work on the show, his relationship with horror-maestro director, Mike Flanagan, and some of the magic that bubbled to the surface in Midnight Mass. 

Jamie pulls back the veil on the mythical ‘writers room’. He talks about the difficulty of getting anything to screen. And we talk, of course, about the influence of Stephen King.

It’s a pleasant detour this week, away from books, without leaving the literary entirely behind.

Enjoy!

The Midnight Club is released worldwide on Netflix, October 7th.  

Other books mentioned in this episode include:

  • The Midnight Club (1994), by Christopher Pike 
  • The Mist (1980), by Stephen King
  • House of Leaves (2000), by Mark Z. Danielewski
