When it comes to the glory days of young adult horror novels, there’s Christopher Pike and then there’s everyone else. Pike wrote incredibly weird, batshit crazy scary books for younger readers, and while Hollywood had dipped into the work of his contemporary R.L. Stine, Pike’s work has been sorely underrepresented on the screen. But that’s about to change, thanks to Mike Flanagan. Not only is Flanagan adapting Pike’s The Midnight Club into a Netflix series, but he’s now signed on to turn Pike’s adult novel The Season of Passage into a movie for Universal.
