Midnight Club To Get Netflix Adaptation From Hill House Creator


Netflix just doubled down on both horror content and creator Mike Flanagan. The Haunting of Hill House creator will be adapting another scary novel, Christopher Pike’s The Midnight Club, for the streamer, according to Variety.

The Midnight Club was published in 1994 and follows five terminally-ill teenagers living at the same hospice home. To keep entertained, the group gathers at midnight to tell scary stories. One night, they make a deal with one another: the first of them to die will try to contact the others from beyond the grave. In addition to adapting The Midnight Club, Variety reports the series will also incorporate other Pike works.

Flanagan tweeted: “Oh, and for you fellow Pike fans out there… the article is correct, we will be incorporating a lot of his books into the series. So whatever your favorite Pike book is, there’s a chance it’ll be part of the show.”

Christopher Pike is the pseudonym for American author Kevin Christopher McFadden. (Yes, his pen name is inspired by the Star Trek character.) He is best known for his 80s and 90s teen horror fiction, including The Thirst and Chain Letter series, as well as the books Remember Me and Alosha. He has written a few adult novels, including Sati and The Blind Mirror. Previously, his book Fall into Darkness was adapted into a 1996 TV movie of the same name.
