Audience Reviews for After Midnight
Horror story anthology in the Creepshow, made for television, vein. Some decent storytelling and good, creepy moments, the wrapper story that ties them all together is a bit uneven, but also has the best twists.
I really didn't understand why the students would go to this creepy professor's house in the first place, let alone tell him a personal story like they did. The only thing that saves this from being horrible is the gore and the ending.
Not a very good horror anthology tale. The first and last story are pretty good, but the rest, including the wraparound stuff, is just boring. I can't say I really expected very much out of it, but I at least expected something that wasn't so uninteresting. It's nice seeing Marc McClure from Back to the Future, Penelope Sudrow from Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3: Dream Warriors and Marg Helgenberger, the last of which had the biggest career of the cast, taking a shot at this. Unfortunately, the overall film is so lackluster and unsatisfying, including the ending that you can see coming from a mile away, that you're not missing much by not seeing it.
