Los Angeles, CA (September 10, 2009) - Bigfoot Entertainment announces that its feature horror film Midnight Movie will be available on Blu-ray Disc beginning October 13th. Currently available on DVD, Midnight Movie recently won Best Feature Film & Best Cinematography at the Chicago Horror Film Festival, and was chosen as DVD of the month for March 2009 by renowned horror film fan publication Fangoria. Consumers can purchase the Blu-ray Disc version of the film through major retailers.
Upon its release last year, Midnight Movie garnered attention and praise in the horror movie world, including being dubbed "A true modern day horror classic" by Movieweb.com. Additionally, it has been called "Perfect fear fare!" (Fangoria Magazine), "The #1 horror film of the year!" (Fatally-Yours.com), and Gorezone Magazine said: "5 out of 5 stars! To say that this film absolutely kicks ass would be the understatement of the year!"
In addition to extras such as Trailers and Outtakes, Midnight Movie on Blu-ray will include a new featurette, "Additional Shooting: A Storyboard Comparison."
Exploring how a traditional slasher genre could gratify modern audiences who have embraced the trend towards supernatural horror films, Midnight Movie takes place in a run-down theater in a sleepy suburban town. A group of friends congregate for a midnight screening of an early 1970s cult horror film, whose director / star is believed to have died five years earlier in a psych ward massacre. However, the detective and doctor who witnessed the bloody aftermath suspect the director was not a victim at all. What everyone has yet to understand is that the director comes alive when the movie is viewed and that the unwary moviegoers will be dragged into the same film they are watching.
"Due to the supernatural nature of our story, we were able to create a villain that paid homage to the past, but with a fresh approach. It was fun to explore what a more traditional slasher villain would do in a film today," said Jack Messitt, Writer / Director of Midnight Movie. "When shooting the gruesome climax of Midnight Movie, we retreated a bit from the obvious gore because I believe what you don't see is much scarier and ultimately more satisfying. The mind will always fill in the gaps in a much more terrifying way than a filmmaker can portray."
