Midnight Movie Reviews
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 theatre and the killer from the movie is after them!
Caught between reality and the screen's flickering shadows, are they becoming the unwilling stars of the very horror movie they are watching?
People gather into a small old 70's theater that manages to still be in business. It's screening a scary movie - so scary in fact that it killed people. Turns out that the killer in the movie can also go into the real world. Wow!
Anyways, that's an awesome idea! Not to mention, it works because of its ability not to take itself so seriously. Cool kills, actually decent acting, tight direction, and a meta-script that feels FRESH (looking at you, SCRE4M) are why you should stick around for this overlooked slasher. The killer is pretty badass, I'll have to say. Plus, the nostalgia of watching midnight movies will win you over. It has a few decent jumps and scares amidst the predictability and easy-to-ridicule flaws.
The special effects were very corny, especially the electrocution scene. Also, the victims are still dumb as ever... When will they ever learn? Plus the ending seemed abrupt.
Nothing new to the genre, but a very pleasant getaway from the "Saw" and the "Paranormal Activity" and the-- you know all that junk kids watch these days. Excuse my Bill Cosby impression. Nonetheless, this is spectacularly fluffy horror that warrants a great time... if you don't mind the random blood puddles on the floor.
