Tired of Twilight‘s sparkling poser asshats masquerading as vampires? Then you’ll want to keep an eye out for director Scott Leberecht’s sombre Midnight Son (review here), coming off of an acclaimed festival run and into UK theatres for a limited run on January 11th, followed by DVD on February 13th courtesy of Monster Pictures.
From the Press Release:
From the director of The Blair Witch Project, MIDNIGHT SON is the story of Jacob (Zak Kilberg; Zombie Strippers, Lincoln Heights), a young man confined to a life of isolation due to a rare skin disorder that prevents him from being exposed to sunlight. His world opens up when he meets Mary (Maya Parish; “How I Met Your Mother”), a local bartender, and falls in love. Tragically, Jacob’s actions become increasingly bizarre as he struggles to cope with the effects of his worsening condition.
Forced by the disease to drink human blood for sustenance, he must control his increasingly violent tendencies as local law enforcement narrow their focus on him as a suspect in a series of grisly murders.
Directed by Scott Leberecht, a well-known name on the festival circuit, MIDNIGHT SON is a twisting, terrifying tale of vampirism and humanity and how the two conditions can intertwine. Having wowed audiences when it received its UK premiere at Frightfest, the film was recently screened to a packed audience at Horrorthon in Dublin. The film receives a limited UK theatrical release on 11 January 2013, followed by a DVD release in time for Valentine’s Day on 11 February 2013.
