‘The Midnight Club’ EP on Why They Adapted the Christopher Pike Classic
The kids make a pact: The first to die will haunt the others in their creepy, exclusive club. To pass the time, they tell each other terrifying tales — always at the stroke of midnight.
“Each of these kids has a lot to be scared of,” teases Trevor Macy, exec producer alongside producing partner Mike Flanagan — the team behind Netflix’s gothic-based hits The Haunting of Hill House and Bly Manor.
What drew the duo to the newer spooky classic, Christopher Pike’s 1994 young-adult horror The Midnight Club? Pike, a prolific cult favorite, is a huge influence, says Macy.
