Master of suspense Mike Flannigan has left his mark on the brains of horror fans thanks to Netflix hits like Midnight Mass and The Haunting of Hill House. His latest project started filming early last year and will arrive on streaming October 12th. His new project is a retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic plus other works, including The Raven.

The main story focuses on the Usher family, whose wealth is built on the family’s pharmaceutical empire. Ruthless siblings Roderick and Madeline Usher lead the company. But when someone begins killing heirs to the family fortune, a dark mystery begins to unfold.
