The Midnight Club premieres tomorrow and you'll notice that the first episode intentionally has A LOT of jump scares. There are so many, in fact, that Mike Flanagan has achieved an official Guinness World Record!

This was announced at the New York Comic Con panel for The Midnight Club, revealing that the most scripted jump scares in a single television episode is officially 21, and was achieved by The Midnight Club, Netflix, and Mike Flanagan. The certificate was presented by official Guinness World Record Adjudicator Andrew Glass during the panel.

There are many that roll their eyes when they hear the word "jump scare," and Mike Flanagan himself is no fan of them, which is what makes the fact that he set the Guinness World Record even more hilarious! Make sure to check out the The Midnight Club tomorrow to see this world record and the rest of this incredible series. And if you're looking for more from Mike Flanagan on The Midnight Club, stay tuned for an interview conducted by Heather Wixson, followed by a post-release spoilery discussion I had with him at NYCC.

"To those before, to those after. To us now, and to those beyond: welcome to THE MIDNIGHT CLUB, a new Netflix horror series from Mike Flanagan [and] the producers of The Haunting of Hill House and Midnight Mass. The Midnight Club release date is October 7.

At a hospice for terminally ill young adults, eight patients come together every night at midnight to tell each other stories – and make 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 1994 novel of the same name as well as other works by Christopher Pike."
