How Midnight Mass' Episode 2 One-Shot Compares To Hill House's

Writer/director Mike Flanagan’s recent Netflix hit Midnight Mass features an impressive tracking shot, but can it match The Haunting of Hill House’s?

Episode 2 of Midnight Mass features a spectacular one-shot scene that lasts inordinately long, but how does it compare to the virtuoso one-shot of The Haunting of Hill House’s episode 6? Midnight Mass has arrived on Netflix, and the horror show is being hailed as a return to form for writer/director Mike Flanagan. While his last television was relatively well-received, 2020’s The Haunting of Bly Manor had major problems and could not recapture the outsized acclaim of 2018’s The Haunting of Hill House.

Midnight Mass, while not quite as universally acclaimed as The Haunting of Hill House, has received impressive write-ups for its compelling supernatural mystery. The series also features some of Flanagan’s inventive camerawork, with episode 2 opening on an ambitious 8-minute one-shot sequence. It is undeniably impressive, but can’t quite outdo the achievement of The Haunting of Hill House’s comparable episode 6—which features a whopping 17-minute single-shot sequence.
