Midnighters is a New Year’s Eve Nightmare!
I recently had the opportunity to watch “Midnighters”, a film about a couple in a tense relationship, where things get even more. . . complicated.
I really enjoyed Midnighters because it was a great combination of suspense, dread, and me being very tense and nervous the whole time. The premise of the film is that a couple driving home from a New Year’s Eve party (drunk), hit a person, and further chaos ensues. This movie was filmed really well, with a skilled small cast. It was a movie I liked watching and wanted to keep watching. I especially was intrigued by Ward Horton (Smith) and Alex Essoe (Lindsey). Their characters were enjoyable but also so tense to watch. They did a fantastic job. I was also pumped to see the girl that played B.B from Kill Bill! Her name is Perla Haney-Jardine, and she is all grown up!
This was a movie I will be recommending to others to see. It was so well-made, and definitely an edge-of-your-seat thriller!
MIDNIGHTERS is the theatrical debut of director Julius Ramsay, who is known for his work on AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” The film was written by his brother Alston Ramsay, who served as speechwriter and senior advisor to Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, General David Petraeus, and Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson in Washington, D.C., before moving to Los Angeles to pursue film-making.
The film has compelling and complicated female leads played by Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes, Tales of Halloween) and Perla Haney-Jardine (Steve Jobs, Spider-Man 3), along with strong performances by Dylan McTee (MTV’s “Sweet Vicious”) and Ward Horton (Annabelle, The Wolf of Wall Street).
