Our Brent McKnight reviewed writer/director Scott Leberecht’s vampire drama “Midnight Son” a year ago at the Maelstrom International Fantastic Film Festival (you can read his full review here). The well-reviewed film is now getting its DVD, VOD, and Digital Download release courtesy of Image Entertainment, so look for it at your favorite movie spots. Until then, check out the cover art above, and a trailer below in case you missed it the first time around.
MIDNIGHT SON is the story of Jacob, 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, 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.
The film stars Zak Kilberg, Maya Parish, Jo D. Jonz, Arlen Escarpeta, Larry Cedar, and Tracey Walter. Matt Compton co-wrote the screenplay and produced.
