the catalog of netflix is enriched day by day, and new films, series and documentaries invest the platform to satisfy each subscriber. In the midst of this profusion of content, it is possible to unearth a few nuggets that have everything to make us to tremble with fear. And if the summer period is still not over, nothing prevents us from getting ready now for Halloween and binge-watch a horror series this week-end. For example, you can turn to midnight sermons, the recent mini-series of Mike Flanaganto whom we owe the excellent The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor. Uploaded to Netflix in September 2021, this American fiction comes in 7 episodes of just over an hour. If you haven’t already done so, you will be able to discover it in a single weekend, but the sensitive souls could well be a bit shaken by this scary plot…
The arrival of a mysterious new priest
What are you talking about midnight sermons, exactly ? Contrary to The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor, it is not no haunted house here. The miniseries kicks off with the return of Riley Flynn (Zach Gilford) in his home island of Crockett Island, after serving a four-year prison sentence for driving while intoxicated, a behavior which caused the death of a young woman. His arrival in this small isolated community coincides with that of a new charismatic young priest, Father Paul (Hamish Linklater). As the latter delivers his sermons, miraculous events follow one another, arousing a real religious zeal on the island. But supernatural manifestations will also come to disturb this small community… And the inhabitants will discover very quickly, in a frightening way, that every miracle has a price.
