Product Description

Something strange is happening on a small-town college campus...Students have been disappearing and the only clues left behind are a bloody corpse and the name "Midnight Skater." A group of nosy kids take it upon themselves to put an end to the mystery, but find out they may be in over their heads! They’ll have to make their way through the college’s dark side of drugs, lies and murder in order to find out who is behind it all. Prepare for an all-out gorefest in one of the most bloody twisted tales of horror ever told!

Review

"One of the most wildly original films I've ever seen. I flat out loved it!" -- B-movie legend Fred Olen Ray

"Peppered with gratuitous violence and low-brow humor...the kind of movie that would make H.G. Lewis proud." -- UtterTrash.net

Anyone who goes into this movie expecting it to be serious, you probably are going to hate it. But if you go into this for just a fun horror experience, it is great! Think of it like this, it has everything: tons of gore, skateboarding, hardcore music, drugs, references to Dungeons & Dragons, zombies, etc. It is ultra low budget and the acting is over-the-top horrible (which makes it so good), and the gore is outrageously bad (again which makes it so good). The dialog is totally laughable and the plot thin, but it's a fun horror movie that had me laughing my a$$ off. Basically, I can sum it up like this: Midnight Skater is so awful, it should be a cult classic. For the low price it's selling for through Amazon Marketplace, the gore-hounds should pick it up and give it a shot...

5.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE THE PURPLE NINJA! July 2, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is another Tempe production made in the same cheap cheesy mode as the Bad Movie Police series. There is a killer loose at Kent State who is not in the National Guard. He stalks mostly women and kills them, although the skate board aspect later disappears. In one scene he has sex with a victim while "she is still warm." A group of inept students decide to locate the killer.

There is an equally bad subplot which involves zombies because zombies sell movies. Cheap special effects, bad acting, and dialouge.

F-bomb, sex, male nudity, necrophilia, and a severed organ. 5 stars on the MST scale.

3.0 out of 5 stars A complete surprise. March 5, 2007
Format:DVD
Midnight Skater (Luke Campbell, 2002)

So I started hearing about local filmmaker (I'm using "local" kind of loosely, he's about an hour away) Luke Campbell a few years ago, but it took me until now to track down a copy of Midnight Skater. And while it's the epitome of the amateur production, there are some chops. No, really.

If you just look at the surface, Midnight Skater is bad, bad, bad. The acting is awful, in almost every case (one might well put this down to Cory Maidens' mentioning in the extras that he was "somewhat inebriated" during most of the filming, and extrapolating that to the entire cast). The special effects are worse, though to be fair they're better than what Herschell Gordon Lewis was doing back in the sixties. The directing and pacing are at least competent, but there are some plot holes big enough to swallow an entire college town (to be fair, some of those are addressed in the deleted scenes). I've seen a lot of no-budget amateur productions, and, well, this one doesn't even get near the top ten.

But when you look underneath, you'll get a surprise. While the actual experience is kind of horrifying, listen to the lines being delivered so woodenly. There's a script holding all this up, and it's a damned good one. Luke and Andrew Campbell and Stacy Silvers wrote themselves a story that's got legs. Had Project Greenlight been around back in the day, I think they would've taken a long look. There are levels to this thing. There are plots, subplots, sub-sub-plots, with everything ratcheting around to look kind of like everything else; they've taken a lot of classic mystery-novel conventions and grafted them onto a horror-comedy. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Hollywood!! May 25, 2005
Format:DVD
While this movie may not wow you with it's special effects and the actors won't win any oscars it is a very very funny campy horror movie. It is entertaining and engaging, which is all a movie should do. It is also a horror movie, so certain exspectations should come along with it. You are going to have actors playing themselves more than a character, even if the character IS who they are in some way, the plot might not be deep, and on and on.....BUUUUTTTTTTT i'll be damned if this isn't a funny, entertaining, and worth every last cent I paid for it. Check it out, you won't be sorry.
