Trivia

Because it was difficult to shoot the scenes with the dogs and the actresses together for the segment "A Night on the Town," the scenes with the dogs had to be filmed separately by a second unit while a first unit handled all the scenes with the actresses. See more »

Goofs

In "Girls Night Out", the convertible top is black in the majority of the story, but when Amy gets out of the car to run from the dogs, when it is white. See more »

Creepy Horror Anthology.
25 August 2005 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

"After Midnight" offers interesting tales that remind me of another 80's slasher flicks such as "April Fool's Day" (the first tale), and "Girls Night Out" (the second tale).

People inside a house narrate these tales while a prowler lurks outside the place.

Anyways, the first story is pretty interesting and has a chilling climax. I didn't see that coming!. In the style of "April Fool's Day" but in this case something went wrong. The second tale is less interesting but has more action involving flesh eating dogs chasing the girls. It is thrilling and has a decent conclusion. The third one is absolutely thrilling and nerve tensing involving a psychopath.

I watched it on TNT a few years ago so my advice would be , look for this popular Anthology. You might be suprirsed to see how many people ask for the movie's title on the Horror board. It has generated a somewhat cult status.
