Mike Flanagan swings between his own writing and adapting other people, but usually with the aim of A) creating compelling worlds and B) scaring the living daylights out of us. He's in adaptation mode for The Midnight Club, which put its first teaser online as part of Netflix's Geeked Week.

The Midnight Club, drawn from Christopher Pike's 1994 YA novel, follows a group of seven young adults living in hospice care at Rotterdam House with terminal illnesses. Every night at midnight, the group meets up to tell each other spooky stories.

They make a deal: When the first of the group dies, that person will try to communicate with the others from the beyond the grave. Guess how well that turns out...

Horror icon Heather Langenkamp plays the doctor overseeing the kids, and repeat Flanagan collaborators Zach Gilford, Samantha Sloyan, Annarah Cymone, and Igby Rigney all feature in the cast.

Flanagan's latest horror will stalk on to screens on 7 October. And if you want more scary stories, head here...
