Last night, January 11th, Dread Central headed out to the Laemmle 4-Plex in Santa Monica for the Los Angeles premiere of the indie vampire film Midnight Son, which is set to make its debut on FEARnet later this month.
At the premiere we caught up with writer/director Scott Leberecht, who spoke with us about his excitement for Midnight Son‘s premiere, how he hopes his film reinvigorates the vampire genre past the Twilight fatigue of fans, and why the filmmaker will always call horror his home.
Dread also chatted with Midnight Son stars Zak Kilberg, Maya Parrish, Jo D. Jonz, and Larry Cedars about their feelings regarding Leberecht’s story getting a release later this month as well as just what makes Midnight Son so different and why they think fans will enjoy the modern, unique vampire tale that was four years in the making.
In addition Kilberg caught us up on a few upcoming projects he’s currently producing, including the psychological thriller Alyce, which is about to finally lock distribution for later this year, and another film that looks to be of interest to horror fans: Would You Rather, which stars Brittany Snow, John Heard, Sasha Grey, and DC-favorite Jeffrey Combs and is centered around a sadistic game of “Would you Rather?” that goes horribly awry.
Check out our red carpet video coverage below, and look for Midnight Son to hit FEARnet later this month!
