Todd and Cathy discuss Mike Flanagan’s newest Netflix series Midnight Mass (they are also BIG fans of The Haunting of Hill House and Bly Manor). They discuss why horror can be so effective if done well, and how this 7-episode series perfectly blends character development, moving monologues, and truth-telling with what’s so obviously scary. Their daughters Camryn (16) and Skylar (14) join the discussion!
