A wonderful movie. I love to see it over and over again
28 January 2000 | by (Chapel Hill, NC) – See all my reviews

The Midnight Hour is, in my opinion, the best tv movie ever made. It was scary and funny. It had everything a person could want to see on a Halloween night. I watched it when I was five years old when it came on the television. It quite possibly could be the movie that made me the horror fanatic that I am today. I absolutely loved it, especially the musical number towards the end of the movie. Now on amazon.com they are offering a collector's edition for sale. I promptly bought myself a copy and I advise any fans to do so. A movie like this one might not be around forever. People just don't know what they are missing.
