The Midnight Disease: Amateurish indie mess
11 October 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The Midnight Disease is apparently another term for writers block and that is what our protagonist is suffering with.

A formerly successful writer struggles to create his next novel and discovers a supernatural muse which desires blood to operate.

The idea is rough around the edges anyway so the lack of direction and blatant budget restrictions really sealed its fate.

I'm not saying The Midnight Disease doesn't have its merits, they are just not good enough to justify the 90 minutes.

This is one of those films which would be used as a stepping stone, a chance to showcase what the creators can do. Based upon this I don't think we'll be seeing any career elevation from these guys quite yet.

The Good:

The concept is interesting enough

The Bad:

Poorly made

Weak cast
