31 Days of Horror Day 23: Midnight Movie

Midnight Movie - Poster

It’s not a perfect movie, but I love it a little more every time I watch it.  It has a great premise: the slasher in an obscure movie (The Dark Beneath, which is pretty much Texas Chainsaw Massacre with hints of Psycho) is able to leave the confines of the film, grab unsuspecting viewers, pull them into the film and kill them.  It puts that little “what if” in your brain.  “What if this was Jason Voorhees?  How would I survive?”

It’s a really fun concept, and the film does a good job of it.  It drags from time to time, but, for the most part, it’s a lot of fun.  It’s called Midnight Movie, so treat it as one.  Start it late at night, turn the lights off, and really get into the spirit of the movie.
Plus, this features early performances from Brea Grant and Rebekah Brandes, so that’s fun.
