21 OCT 2022 Beach House Pictures (BHP) is proud to announce the exclusive, global premiere of their first scripted series on Netflix, MR. MIDNIGHT: BEWARE THE MONSTERS, on October 24.
Inspired by best-selling, beloved horror fiction book series of the same name by James Lee, the 13-part comedy-horror series follows a group of teenagers as they come together to solve a series of strange supernatural occurrences in their town, which appear to be centered around their friend’s emerging mystical abilities. As they embark on a thrilling ‘ghost hunting’ journey to figure out these strange events, they find themselves drawn into a cat and mouse game with wicked spirits and monsters and come face to face with their own skeletons in the closet.
