Excellent Documentary on a Troubled Production

Midnight Madness: The Making Of Popcorn (2017)

**** (out of 4)

Excellent fifty-five minute documentary that takes a look at the somewhat disastrous making of POPCORN, the 1991 horror movie. Director Mark Herrier is joined by cast members Jill Schoelen, Malcolm Danare, Derek Rydall, Ivette Soler, Elliott Hurst and Dee Wallace as well as make-up artist Mat Falls, composer Paul Zaza and the distributor Jonathan Wolf. If you're familiar with the film then you know it had a very troubled production and thankfully this documentary doesn't shy away from that. We hear why the original director and lead star were fired. We hear about how producer Bob Clark hired his friend Herrier and then we get conflicting stories about who really directed the picture. It's a pretty awkward section where Herrier talks about it being his films while some of the cast say Clark took it over. There are some great stories about shooting the picture in Jamaica and how a lot of things just didn't go right. I'm really glad that the documentary didn't shy away from some of the negative stuff and there's no question that fans of the film are going to love this. Heck, I'm not a fan of the film and I really loved this documentary. The interviews are excellent and this is certainly a must see.
