Mike Flanagan is reuniting with Netflix once again. After working with them on “Gerald’s Game”, “The Haunting of…” series and “Midnight Mass”, the writer/director will now adapt “The Fall Of The House Of Usher”, a limited series based on multiple works from Edgar Allan Poe for the streamer.
No plot details were released but Flanagan x Poe will surely be interesting to say the least. The Fall of the House of Usher is a gothic horror short story written by Poe. First published in 1893, it features themes of madness, family, isolation and metaphysical identities. You know all the things that make a great Flanagan project. As his stock continues to rise, so does Flanagan’s ability to both horrify us and shatter are hearts at the same time.
Flanagan’s current masterpiece, Midnight Mass, is now streaming on Netflix.
