The new Mike Flanagan joints looks like it's going to be a mob movie meets a spooky horror flick!

Famed horror director Mike Flanagan is giving us thrills and chills with the first trailer for his upcoming Edgar Allan Poe adaptation!

Flanagan, famous for movies like Doctor Sleep and a slew of successful horror miniseries, is returning to Netflix with The Fall of the House of Usher which will debut on Oct. 12.

The eight-part miniseries follows “ruthless siblings Roderick and Madeline Usher” who have built their pharmaceutical company into an empire, but “past secrets come to light when the heirs to the Usher dynasty start dying at the hands of a mysterious woman from their youth,” according to the official synopsis.

The trailer makes Flanagan’s grisly version of the well-known Poe tale look moody, bloody and full of smart dialogue—much like the other miniseries he’s created for Netflix like The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of BLy Manor, and Midnight Mass. It looks like the series is going to start like a mob movie with a criminal trial before adding in the chilling supernatural elements Flanagan is known for.

Flanagan mainstays Carla Gugino, Kate Siegal, Annaabeth Gish, Rahul Kohli, Bruce Greenwood, Carl Lumbly, and Henry Thomas all star alongside new faces Mark Hamill, Mary McDonnell (Scream 4), and Willa Fitzgerald (Scream: The TV Series).

While the trailer doesn’t show anything explicitly queer, Flanagan is known to be inclusive, adding a lesbian love story to The Haunting of Bly Manor. Plus, the first look images that were released last month point to a possible queer romance!

The Fall of the House of Usher premiers on Netflix on Oct. 12. Watch the trailer below.
