Storyline

After Kate's friend Monica invites her to help clean up an old opera house where her mother was killed in a play she starred in, she is skeptical. But when the doors suddenly get locked from the outside, she has good reason to be. She starts having visions of her dead mother getting killed down in the basement and everyone starts to see a mysterious clown. When people start dying they decide that they have to get out quick. When the clock hits twelve, someone wants her to be in the final scene with them. Written by Kyle <Kyleshivers@aol.com>

not bad!
27 June 1999 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

So, ok. In lieu of the completely dumb title, this movie is actually kind of good- do not be deceived! It kind of lost me at the end, because I had no idea who was who. Like all horror movies it did include a pointless sex scene, but who's complaining? The flashbacks of the mother were great, and the setting of this movie was very innovative- an old theater is a great place to stage a horror movie. The scenery rocked my world three times over. I can't quite put my finger on it but this movie was different that all the other teen slasher flicks. The lead character looked startlingly like one of my friends, who coincidentally, is named Sarah. While watching The Clown At Midnight, I was thinking Phantom of the Opera meets Scream. I definitely recommend this movie to anyone who likes horror movies a lot and would like to view a good, modern one. Enjoy!
