‘Midnight Son’ to Premiere on FEARnet
FEARnet is a fantastic site which features horror, thriller, and suspense films and trailers for all of the horror fans out there. On top of that, there are also extra goodies like message boards for chatting with other viewers, games and much more. In January 2012 the site will get even better with the addition of Midnight Son, a vampire film that has received rave reviews from loads of horror sites and many big film festivals.
“Midnight Son is a dark, character-driven drama that plays on horror themes in an understated, subtle way. The story centers on Jacob, a young man grappling with a dramatic physical transformation. No matter how much he eats, he suffers from malnutrition. To his disgust, he finds the blood in his steak packaging more satisfying than the steak itself. Something is changing inside him. When romance sparks with a young woman named Mary, he wrestles with the monster he's becoming while desperately trying to keep his new craving a secret.”
“I’m really thrilled that FEARnet is going to premiere the film,” says writer/director Scott Leberecht. “FEARnet is such a great way to reach out to horror fans, via both their television and VOD platforms, so we’re extremely excited for the movie to be premiering this way.” Producer Matt Compton adds, “FEARnet gives the film an amazing opportunity to be seen by so many horror fans all across the country, and as independent filmmakers, that’s incredibly important to us.”
Not only is this great news for vampires fans, but it’s also high praise for the filmmaker himself since this is the first time FEARnet has ever acquired a film directly from the filmmaker. “We normally acquire films from distributors, but after seeing the film earlier this year and really loving it, I contacted the filmmakers about acquiring it directly from them,” says Peter Block, FEARnet’s President & General Manager. “I know it will be something that the FEARnet audience will really respond to, and will be a perfect fit to our 2012 film lineup.”
Major props to Scott Leberecht!
