New Netflix series 'The Midnight Club' breaks the record for jump scares

A MARTINEZ, HOST:

Good morning, I'm A Martinez. You know that moment when you're watching a scary movie and suddenly something happens that makes you jump from your seat?

(SOUNDBITE OF TV SHOW, "THE MIDNIGHT CLUB")

RUTH CODD: (As Anya, screaming).

WILLIAM CHRIS SUMPTER: (As Spencer) Welcome to your first official night in the Midnight Club.

MARTINEZ: It's known as a jump scare, and a new Netflix series called "The Midnight Club" has broken the record - 21 in a single episode. Series creator Mike Flanagan actually hates jump scares and says he only broke the record so, quote, "maybe I never have to do one of these again." Wait, did you hear that? What is it? It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
