Mike Flanagan has helped define horror as a genre in the 2010s and is enjoying his victory lap as we begin the 2020s. His original Netflix projects and Stephen King adaptations have also contributed to elevating horror into the mainstream. Films like Doctor Sleep and shows like The Haunting of Hill House are premiere content highly regarded by critics and fans alike. Moreover, his ensemble cast of recurring actors follows him wherever he goes.
Annabeth Gish, Annalise Basso, Zach Gilford, Aya Furukawa, Bruce Greenwood, Carla Gugino, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Doug Jones, Rahul Kohli, Carl Lumbly, T’Nia Miller, Victoria Pedretti, Elizabeth Reaser, Igby Rigney, Sauriyan Sapkota, Kate Siegel, Samantha Sloyan, Henry Thomas, and Lulu Wilson, are among the list of names.
In celebration of this year’s entry The Midnight Club and the spooky season, we’ve decided to rank Flanagan’s work — both feature films and his critically acclaimed series on Netflix. These are our rankings for every Flanagan movie and TV show (so far).
