The Familiar Faces of Fright in Mike Flanagan’s Horror Universe

Similar to Ryan Murphy, Quentin Tarantino, and Alfred Hitchcock, Flanagan knows the power of a familiar face on screen, and viewers can’t get enough of seeing these actors assume different roles from one show to the next.

Let’s take a look at some of Mike Flanagan’s regular players.

Carla Gugino

With credits ranging from Troop Beverly Hills to the Spy Kids trilogy, the Florida native has always proven herself to be a dynamic actress.

Henry Thomas

With six appearances under his belt, and a role in the upcoming The Fall of the House of Usher, Henry Thomas is an indelible figure in the Flanagan universe.

Michael Fimognari

This cinematographer extraordinaire is one of two non-actors on our list, but he’s probably the most responsible for the consistent visual texture of Flanagan’s work.

Oliver Jackson-Cohen

Jackson-Cohen is no stranger to horror, with appearances in The Raven and The Invisible Man, opposite Elisabeth Moss.

Elizabeth Reaser

The versatile actress is known for iconic roles in The Family Stone, The Twilight Saga, and Grey’s Anatomy.

James Flanagan

The multi-talented brother of Mike Flanagan has made eight appearances, both in front of and behind the camera. James Flanagan is noticeably more low-key than his brother, with only 112 followers on Twitter and no Wikipedia page.
