Mike Flanagan Reveals What He Needed Netflix’s Haunting Season 3 To Be About, And I Suppose It May Have Been The Greatest One

Horror mastermind Mike Flanagan blew followers’ minds in an enormous approach in 2023 with the discharge of the blood-soaked and emotionally harrowing The Fall of the Home of Usher, which shortly grew to become certainly one of my favourite horror collection of all time. Regardless of adapting a wide range of works from Edgar Allan Poe, the restricted collection wasn’t a part of Netflix’s Haunting anthology alongside Hill Home and Bly Manor, however it seems Flanagan did certainly have a particular objective in thoughts for Season 3 had all the pieces labored out in his favor. And OMG, it might have been the perfect one but, as a result of he was aiming to place his signature spin on the works of literary icon Richard Matheson. 

That’s proper, Mike Flanagan was 100% on board to ship The Haunting of Hell Home, which followers began clamoring for as quickly because it was apparent how superb Hill Home was when it was launched in 2018. Only one letter’s variance from Shirley Jackson’s haunted abode, however a wildly totally different method to the foundational horror subgenre, and with a slew of equally lauded novels and tales to complement the core nightmares inside Belasco Home. Flanagan’s reveal got here to followers in probably the most distinctive and unpredictable approach potential: as a foreword for a beautiful re-creation of Matheson’s seminal story, set to be launched by Suntup Editions (by way of Bloody Disgusting). In his phrases: 

After I tailored Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill Home as a Netflix collection, there was a lot discuss the best way to proceed the Haunting anthology. We adopted Hill Home with The Haunting of Bly Manor, based mostly on quite a few ghost tales by Henry James. Had there been a 3rd season, I needed that season to be The Haunting of Hell Home. It was truly the primary title we explored when Hill Home was over, however the rights had been spoken for and there didn’t appear to be a path ahead.
