Did You Know?


2 years after its DVD release in 2008, director Jack Messitt got the chance to do a revised version of the movie. According to Messitt, production company Bigfoot Entertainment was so impressed with the DVD sales that they eventually gave him more money to update the movie with new scenes and better special/sound effects. The new version was released as "Midnight Movie: Killer Cut" on DVD in 2011. See more »

Not a bad movie at all!
5 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't let the bad reviews scare you away from this one. It's actually a pretty good movie. The beginning starts as if it's really going to be bad but once you get into the middle of the movie, it turns out to be really good. Yes it's an indie film, now it may not have had a huge budget, but it's better than a lot of the crap I've seen out there. My son watched it with me and made fun of it up to about the 30 minute mark but then really got into and even started talking to the people in the movie. That's a sign he's actually paying attention. Like I said this is not a big budget Saw or Scream and doesn't really claim to be. And no, I'm in no way affiliated with the movie but I liked the movie for what it was. It was entertaining and at sometimes scary. Definitely not a waste of your time to see. Just make sure you sit through more than 30 to 45 minutes and give it a chance. It will probably surprise you...
