A mostly lost horror flick from John A. Russo, Midnight is an effective low-budget horror film.
Young girl flees her abusive stepfather, hitches a ride with two young thieves, and ends up at the home of a family of evil cultist.
A true B flick, that's rough around the edges, but still manages to hold together as a compelling shocker. The film starts out in a mostly campy light, but builds to some moments of truly violent horror. It's actually similar to Craven's Last House on the Left in it's raw footage appearance. The cast is only decent, John Amplas (who was the star of Romero's Martin) is shamefully under-used in his role as a crazed family member.
On the plus side though, makeup FX master Tom Savini lends his talents to make some horrifically gory moments. The raw scenery of rural Pennsylvania gives the movie a realistic feel. And there's a rather catchy (if not just cheesy and out of place) theme song.
Fans of truly low-budget horror will surely enjoy this frightening little number, while the faint of heart just needs to stay away.
