We do love an ole mind bender, Arrow Video promise After Midnight will deliver that mindf**k. The film comes from the film-makers behind cult genre hits The Battery and Tex Montana Will Survive!
This slow-burning, genre-bending gem about breaking up, moving on and facing your monsters-both real and imaginary. Full of heart wrenching emotion produced by Spring, The Endless team of David Lawson, Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson who also stars in the film. Director Jeremy Gardner also leads the cast.
If you enjoy subtle, eerie, ominous thrillers like It Comes At Night, Blue Ruin. Throw in a big slice of H.P Lovecraft, you’ll dig After Midnight.
Like many of the great Arrow Video releases, it comes stacked with bonus features. Check out the details below, before that here’s the film’s UK Trailer…
Ten years into his small-town romance with Abby, bartender Hank wakes up alone in an empty home with nothing but a cryptic parting note for company. As Hank drinks himself into heartbreak and depression, Abby’s sudden departure soon becomes the least of his concerns as a mysterious monster starts clawing at his door on a nightly basis.
As the threat outside his door intensifies, Hank calls on Abby’s police officer brother Shane and best friend Wade for help. With no trace of the monster – and his behaviour becoming more erratic – his friends remain unconvinced of the creature lurking outside, and Hank slips further into his own paranoia and loneliness.
