Making A Teen Slasher Scary Is Hard, But Midnight Movie Pulls It Off Like No Other
Sure, it's B-Grade, the killer's costume is awful and the acting isn't particularly good. But why do we need any of that in a slasher? Since the days of Scream the slasher has been my favorite sub-genre, and finding fresh new entries can be hard. That's why I was delighted to discover Midnight Movie.
The film takes it's time establishing characters and showing off it's creepy story. Speaking of which is quite interesting.
When things do pick up, they never stop coming. The gore is delightfully over-the top and the slightly stupid characters make for speedy, fun deaths. Unlike many others, I had no irks with the killer's weapon and thought the setting was brilliant.
However, MM is not for the feint of heart. Beforementioned gore and a helping of scary atmosphere and set pieces make things rather horrifying for the typical slasher fan. So proceed with caution, oh weak stomached viewers.
All in all, MM is fresh, inventive and delightfully insane. Everything you could ask for in a slasher.
