The Midnight Mass The soundtrack contains famous rock songs that play throughout the first few episodes, but these are then replaced by hymns. Lots of changes like Midnight Mass‘the story develops, from character traits to the general direction of the series. Much of these changes become evident over time, but one of the things that helps support the themes around the show is the fact that the music is changed as well.
Midnight Mass comes from horror mastermind Mike Flanagan, who has already worked with Netflix on a handful of films as well as two incredibly popular TV shows, The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly’s Mansion. Now he’s back with a third show which is perhaps his most personal yet – Midnight Mass. Flanagan had wanted to develop Midnight Mass in something – a movie, TV show, or book – for several years, even going so far as to add the story like an Easter Egg in two of his previous films. Fortunately, it was finally made and is now a Netflix series.
However, compared to the average Netflix show, Midnight Mass doesn’t use too many songs, but the ones he does play prominently and often say a lot about what’s going on in those scenes.
