Format: DVD
This at its core a supernatural slasher film. Like all slasher films it is required to have a masked killer who uses a specialised cutting implement to dispatch teens in a particular setting. Like most supernatural films it comes with specific rules and otherworldly occurances and lapses in logic to circumvent said killer. The film works in both its horror subgenres.

Now at first glance the basic premise of the film sounds like Bava's gore/monster classic DEMONS. Sure, that's partially true. It's about a group of people going to see a midnight horror film in an old theater, and then having the horrifying images on the screen come to life and effect the audience in gruesome ways. But that's where the similarities end and the innovation begins. While I love DEMONS, I have to admit beyond the monster effects, soundtrack, cinematography and basic premise, the film brings nothing new to the table that Romero hadn't already in his zombie films. The satire about how movie violence effects its audience is there, but Bava was more interested in the grue, so it gets buried. This film leaves out the satire completely but builds a serious thriller out of it.

First let me praise God, Buddha, Allah, and Jesus that I have seen a slasher film with characters that are likeable and fleshed out--for the most part. There not as in-depth as Hamlet but for this genre they seem real enough. All the characters you're supposed to like, you do. Hell, one character, the Biker, starts off as a loathesome character and then turned out to be my favorite character. The best part about this film is that it works at getting you to like the people involved, but doesn't let that influence who lives and who dies. There are some casualties in this film that will really make you wish they weren't.

Format: DVD
Around 12:30 am last night after the Late Night Show Sid cruised the channels in hopes of some fine b. Luckily one of the movie channels just started their showing of Midnight Movie. Previously we had read reviews in favor of the film and decided this would be the feature film of the evening. It offered up a nice concept for horror making it a somewhat original b. Sure it's nothing you must see, but for an avid low budget horror fan it's certainly worth the watch.

The film is centered around a group of people gathered at a dive movie theater to view a cult film called The Dark Beneath. Once the film starts rolling in becomes evident that the crowd of ten is in danger as the killer emerges from the screen taking people out one by one. To sum up the killer, he's a far less scary version of Leatherface who dons a corkscrew as his weapon of choice. The way he kills you is by smelling your fear, much like a bee, causing him to stalk you in a very slow foot dragging motion (hence the Leatherface comparison).

All in all the flick was pretty cool with a nice concept. We loved the idea of a killer popping out of the screen, killing his prey, then dragging them back into the movie for storage. However for it to be well received you should be pretty open to weak acting and lack of scares because it's far from frightening. It's more of that good low budget horror that provides more laughs then anything else, which is always a Sid favorite. This one probably would have been enjoyed years ago, but the lack of nudity may have scared a young elf off.

2008 CHICAGO HORROR FILM FESTIVAL WINNER--Best Feature Film and Best Cinematography

Whoa! This is an absolute bloody good time!

Here's the setup--A small group gathers at an old theater for a midnight screening of an 70's horror film. They get more than they bargained for.

Imagine watching the big screen and your buddy gets up to go to the bathroom. The film then intersects and you watch in horror as your pal gets heinously bludgeoned to death by a madman with a spiral screw.

Creepy! Initially the crowd squeals in morbid fascination, as they think they're part of a reality show. But no, they did not get Punk'd, they're about to donate blood. Bwhahahahaaa! Say your prayers chumps.

This movie is very well done. It's an original script, with some great old-school f/x(no CGI), adequate acting, believable gore scenes, nice camera work, plus a little nudity slipped in. A couple moments torward the end get slightly silly, but not too bad. Worth a look for the gore hounds, no doubt.

Format: DVD
I'm a big fan of horror films, but there hasn't been much to get excited about lately. This film had some potential, but cardboard characters and a flimsy script kept it from being anything but a routine slasher. The idea is pretty good, kind of like 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' meets 'Last Action Hero', but it just doesn't deliver many chills. The last quarter of the film is better than the first three quarters, but it doesn't save this from being a "by the numbers" horror flick. The acting is decent for this type of film and the killer is pretty cool looking, but the killings are pretty mild for a slasher. It's worth a look for fans of slasher films, but it's pretty forgettable.

I'd heard about this by mistake when I was searching for the documentary Midnight Movies. I tried it because the cover was very well done. I wound up liking it.

A group of people are trapped in a theater when the killer from a midnight movie (that *strongly* resembles The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) enters 'the real world'.

A movie that had a very small budget and stars people you've never heard of, but for what they had, it was well done. I'm rating it three stars. I may be overselling it here. I think it's just that I expected *nothing*, so my liking it was a pleasant surprise.

I think it would make a good double feature with another 'trapped in the theater' horror movie: Popcorn
