Mike Flanagan (born May 20, 1978 in Salem, Massachusetts) is an American director and screenwriter.

He primarily works in the horror genre and made his name with his films in this wheelhouse, all of which he directed, wrote, and edited. He has also created several horror shows for Netflix, starting with The Haunting of Hill House (2018), which was based on Shirley Jackson's novel of the same name.

A lifelong Stephen King fan, Flanagan has said that making an adaptation of The Dark Tower is his biggest dream. He acquired the rights to the books in 2022, though considering the long and tortured history of attempted Dark Tower adaptations, there's no guarantee anything will come of it.

He's married to Kate Siegel and they have two children together.
