Midnight Mass is now streaming on Netflix. Review by David Griffin.

Mike Flanagan's Midnight Mass is his best work to date. It's filled with compelling characters and plenty of frights of both the supernatural and human varieties, but it's also a deeply personal story. The Netflix limited series effectively wrestles with complex theological questions in an engaging way, even when some of the character interactions run longer than they need to. Along with some captivating scripts, Flanagan also flexes his directorial muscles with some nifty tracking shots that help bring the creepy and isolated community of Crockett Island to life.
