Today we got in the trailer for the indie slasher pic from Jack Messitt, “>Midnight Movie, which recently took home the prize for Best Feature and Best Cinematography from the Chicago Horror Film Festival!
The plot for Midnight Movie goes like this; At a rundown theater in a sleepy suburban town, a group of friends attend the midnight screening of a 1970s cult horror film. These unsuspecting teenagers are unaware that the director and star of the movie made a bloody escape from a psych ward five years earlier and may still be on the loose. As the midnight movie begins, the kids heckle the old black-and-white scenes. But they are jolted when the killer butchers one of their friends … on screen! They soon realize that the killing is not a prank. They are locked inside the theater and the killer from the movie is after them!
Check out the trailer below and look for Midnight Movie in a limited theatrical run starting early next year!
