Perfect Fear Fare --Fangoria Magazine

The #1 Horror Film of the year!

One of the Top 70 Horror Movies of the Decade --Skrin (Apresiasi Horror)

Product Description

Jack Messitt's award winning horror film can finally be seen as it was intended. With new and enhanced visual effects, never before seen footage and extended scenes, what called a true modern day horror classic just got better. With an atmosphere that oozes dread (, Midnight Movie is a gory and fast paced good time (

It was just another rundown movie house in a small suburban town -- what better place for a midnight screening of a true cult classic? But this isn't your typical horror film, because five years earlier, the director and star of the movie made a bloody escape from a psych ward and may still be on the loose.

When the film starts to roll, the heckling begins. But when one of their friends is viciously murdered in the very movie they are watching, laughter gives way to fear as the horrified audience realizes that it is no prank.

When they try to run, they realize that the same psycho they just saw on the silver screen has trapped them all in the theater. With no hope of escape and their numbers thinning fast, the survivors must figure out a way to turn the tables on the very same killer that they once rooted for in the cult slasher flick. Caught between reality and the screen's flickering shadows, they become the unwilling stars of the very horror movie they were watching.

Midnight Movie is an entertaining rollercoaster-spookhouse-ride of a film! (

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Corkscrews are no longer just for wine bottles August 25, 2009
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gruesome & original--think Demons & Cigarrette Burns January 13, 2009
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars What's Not To Love?... March 23, 2010
A man escapes a mental institution through supernatural means, in order to attend a screening of his 40yo horror film. At the theatre, employees and a handful of patrons (including the world's biggest biker!) await the movie. Uh-oh! The movie is far more than it seems, as the main character -a maniac in a skull mask- emerges from the screen! Many bloody murders occur! Now, while MIDNIGHT MOVIE did remind me (a little bit) of DEMONS, the differences outweighed any similarities. Plus, the finale has quite a nice payoff!...
