More Badness From Russo
12 April 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Midnight 2 (1993)

* (out of 4)

The sequel no one really wanted features Abraham, the sole survivor from the first movie, now working it up in Pittsburgh where he goes around with his video camera picking up women only to murder them later. He ends up picking off the wrong woman especially when her friends begins to work with a detective to bring the crazy killer down. I found MIDNIGHT to be one of the worst movies I've seen from the 80's slasher craze and this sequel really isn't any better but I'd give this one a little more credit for at least having some bad moments that at least keep you entertained because of how bad they are. It's clear that once again director-writer-producer John Russo is working with a very small budget and this here can be blamed for some of the bad stuff. Many times the actors mess up their lines but they just keep on acting, clearly not being able for too many takes. This here adds a few small laughs but the real killer is the screenplay itself. I'm not sure why Russo would deliver a stalk 'n slash type of film but instead of any stalking or slashing he just shows the serial killer constantly talking. If he's not talking directly to the camera then he's talking to the female lead just over and over again. People don't come to horror movies to listen to boring dialogue. There are a couple minor death scenes, one sex scene with some nudity and just a lot of talking. At just 66-minutes without the credits, this thing doesn't take too long to go through and the campy moments make for some laughs but there's really nothing working with this thing.
