A mad movie villain comes to life
24 February 2009 | by haissomSee all my reviews

"Midnight Movie" offers more thrills than your average roller coaster. Directed by Jack Messitt, the film keeps the audience on its toes throughout its entire duration. Set in a cinema complex, the story follows a grizzly movie villain come to life who stalks and kills the audience members systematically. The chase soon turns into a cat and mouse game between the hunter and the hunted. The many Point of View Shots put us into the characters minds and shoes and the thrills are a lot more powerful than they would be in the average horror flick. Ted, the mass murdering villain would Freddy and Jason a run for their money as he proves to be just as charismatic and deadly.
