What is the plot of The Midnight Club?
Prepare to enter the Midnight Club – it sounds like one hell of a wild ride.
At a hospice for terminally ill young adults, eight patients come together every night at midnight to tell each other stories. It sounds like a kind of teenage campfire situation that’s all very wholesome and good-natured, but we know how these Netflix series go, so clearly it’s going to unravel into anything but.
According to the Netflix synopsis, Iman Benson stars as Ilonka, a high school senior on her way to Stanford University. That is until she’s diagnosed with terminal thyroid cancer and heads to Brightcliffe Manor instead of her dream college. At her new hospice home, she befriends a group of similarly ill teens who sneak into the library every night to tell each other scary stories. But what they soon all come to realise is that Brightcliffe has a mysterious history and a lot of secrets lurking in the shadows.
And after sharing their stories, the group makes a pact that the next of them to die will give the group a sign from the beyond. The Midnight Club is based on the works of Christopher Pike, including Witch, Gimme A Kiss, Road To Nowhere, The Wicked Heart and, of course, The Midnight Club, which serves as the series’ biggest inspiration. The adaptation comes from Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy’s Intrepid Pictures (The Haunting Of Hill House, Midnight Mass) and Leah Fong.
