The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Midnight Son (2011)

Starring: Zak Kilberg, Maya Parish, Tracey Walter
Director: Scott Leberecht


Premise:
A guy with a condition to sunlight falls for a girl with problems of her own. Soon bodies stack up and the authorities believe he has something to do with it.

My Take:
Don't let the horrible cover art fool you. This movie brings a breathe of fresh air to the vampire subgenre. It tiptoes around the word vampire and adds a lot of subtly to the traditional lore about the creature. Sure it's also a tale about a relationship, emotions, and sacrifices, but that is also what makes it interesting. 

Rating: So Good
