The latest stunning news taking the horror world by storm has been speculation over horror writer Mike Flanagan’s announcement that he is switching from Netflix to rival service Amazon Prime Video. During his time at Netflix, Flanagan created several headline-grabbing genre series – such as The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manorand last The Midnight Club. Flanagan’s partnership wasn’t always rainbows and sunshine, however, as the director confirmed on his Tumblr that he and the streaming giant clashed on many creative issues. While it’s a heartbreaking loss for Netflix, Prime Video has certainly made a winner.

To signify the complete deterioration of the Flanagan-Netflix collaboration, the streaming giant took a step forward by quitting immediately The Midnight Club, which only debuted on the platform in the first week of October. And while Netflix has an apparent track record of canceling TV series at the peak of their popularity, the move feels far more minor compared to previous cancellations. That being said, the popular theory is that Netflix canceled the hit horror series because Flanagan struck a deal with Prime Video – which has no doubt led to a wider rift between the two streaming platforms. It will be interesting to see what horror projects Flanagan now conjures up for Prime Video.

As expected, fans were very grateful for the responses, but many agreed that Netflix’s decision was a complete failure for future collaborations. It’s a shame, because Netflix and Flanagan certainly did magic together. But now we have a chance to see Flanagan continue to thrive on Prime Video.
