Stephen King, one of the most popular and respected horror authors of all time, has praised the Netflix horror series Midnight Mass. In a tweet, King called the show a “dense, beautifully photographed terror tale that climbs to a high pitch of horror by the 7th and last episode.”
King’s praise for Midnight Mass is particularly significant because the show seems to be heavily inspired by King’s own work, particularly his novel Salem’s Lot. Both stories are set in small towns that are plagued by mysterious and terrifying forces.
Mike Flanagan, the creator of Midnight Mass, has also adapted several other King stories for film and television, including Doctor Sleep and Gerald’s Game. Flanagan is also working on an adaptation of King’s The Dark Tower series for Amazon.
King’s praise for Midnight Mass is sure to pique the interest of horror fans everywhere. The show is currently available to stream on Netflix.
In addition to King’s praise, Midnight Mass has also been praised by critics for its suspenseful story, well-developed characters, and stunning visuals. The show has been nominated for several awards, including a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Limited Series.
If you’re a fan of horror, I highly recommend checking out Midnight Mass. It’s one of the best horror shows I’ve seen in recent years.
