Horror anthology about a college professor (Zada) teaching a course called "The Psychology of Fear". He brings his students (including psychic McWhirter) to his home, one dark and stormy night to tell scary stories. The first involves a young couple whose car breaks down by an old, abandoned house. The second has four trendy teenage girls getting lost in a bad part of town, and chased by a pack of vicious dogs. Last, we have Helgenberger confronting a stalker at the answering service where she works the night shift. Written by

After watching "After Midnight", I find it hard to believe that a major studio (MGM/UA) picked up this independent production. Though at the same time, I can understand why this major studio decided to not give it a big release. This is an unscary and lazy movie that doesn't seem to fully understand what the audience expects in a horror anthology. Two of the four stories told in the movie have no twists at the end! Two of the stories also start off with the same premise (drivers in a remote area getting car problems.) And each of the stories has things that don't make sense when you think about them afterwards. The only good thing about the movie was some fairly impressive stop-motion animation near the very end, but that only lasts a few seconds. Even if you love horror anthologies like I do, you can safely skip this one.
