An unknown killer, clad in World War II U.S. Army fatigues, stalks a small New Jersey town bent on reliving a 35 year-old double murder by focusing on a group of college kids holding an annual Spring Dance.
A teenage girl runs away from home because police officer/stepfather puts the moves on her. Hitchhiking to California, she's picked up by two guys who are also traveling cross-country. Along the way, they decide to camp out in the woods and run across a family of Satanists who keep their dead mother in the attic.Written by
...after sitting through this excruciatingly brutal film. John Russo's only other decent contribution to the horror genre (aside from the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD), MIDNIGHT is an unrelentingly disturbing film that remains a shock to the senses even after multiple viewings.
It's films like this that make good horror. The cheap music, bad acting, and atrocious camerawork actually make the film work, sort of like a poor man's TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. I heartily wish that Hollywood would learn it's lesson from no-budget efforts like this, and put the horror back into horror films.
