Ever since the vampire craze hit boiling point all of the wannabe film makers have been coming out of the shadows with one low-budget vampire film after the other. Most of these films are god awful, but every now and then a gem shines through the garbage and actually catches your attention. Midnight Son, a new indie film, appears to be one of those rare gems.
Here is the Midnight Son synopsis:
“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.”
Check out the trailer:
Clearly this isn’t your average vampire flick, Midnight Son appears to be an intelligent film with some actual depth. But, I am basing this on a short trailer, so I could be very wrong. It’s either a dark, yet captivating vampire movie, or another piece of trash that tries too hard. We’ll just have to watch it and see.
As for actually watching the movie, well, according to the Midnight Son website you have to ask for a viewing in your area. The main page displays a button that says “Click here to demand Midnight Son in your area.” Hmm.
Hopefully the Midnight Son creators give us some more information soon. Their website doesn’t really have much of anything on it right now.
