Arrow Video to Release John Russo's "Midnight" August 29th!

Affectionately described as “a greasy, grimy, and frequently unpleasant little nugget” by DVD Talk, writer-director John A. Russo’s sordid tale of young runaways, lecherous stepfathers and inbred Satanists, Midnight, comes to DVD for the first time in the UK, completely uncut.

Adapted by Russo (co-writer of “Night Of The Living Dead”) from his own novel, Midnight stars John Amplas (Day Of The Dead; Martin), Melanie Verlin (Monkey Shines) and Lawrence Tierney (Reservoir Dogs).

Buy Midnight on DVD at Amazon UK!

Alone on the road trying to hitch a ride to California to start a new life away from the unwelcome attention of her sleazy stepfather, Nancy hooks up with a pair of good natured petty crooks on a road trip to nowhere special. Things take a dark turn when they decide to camp out in the woods and her new friends meet an untimely end at the hands of a pair of backwoods cops.

Now, Nancy is in danger of being sacrificed to Satan himself by the wayward lawmen and their twisted siblings in an insane attempt to resurrect their mother’s mummified corpse.

Special Features:

Introduction by star John Amplas; “Vampires, Rednecks and Zombies: The Fear Career Of John Amplas”; “Midnight At Your Door: The Shocking Sacrifices Of John Russo”; collector’s booklet featuring brand new writing on the film by Stephen Thrower, author of “Nightmare USA”; reversible sleeve with original and newly commissioned artwork; double-sided fold out artwork poster; presented in its original full frame 1.33:1 aspect ratio; original mono audio.

Midnight (cert. 18) will be released on DVD (£15.99) by Arrow Video on the 29th of August 2011.
