In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Midnight Movie

A few words about the upcoming horror flick Midnight Movie. I had seen some posters for it on Bloody Disgusting, but hadn’t given it much thought, since the one sheet looked like a blatant copy of 2006’s Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon.

However, while looking up Brea Grant, THIS

little spitfire from the Heroes premiere - that show really does prefer blondes – I saw that she's actually in Midnight Movie. This warranted a second look. On further investigation though, it looks like her part in Midnight is pretty minimal. This stint on Heroes is clearly her big break. That’s gotta be a bit of a shock eh? Going from relative obscurity to suddenly being seen by millions (and I mean meeeleeeons) of people.

The premise of Midnight Movie sounds pretty cool. The trailer doesn't show much, but it seems like a seventies horror version of The Last Action Hero. The killer’s weapon of choice does look fairly flimsy and inefficient, but from what I can gather, this might be intentional and part of its shtick.

The website is pretty slick though, click here if you want to check it out.
