Hannah Fierman (V/H/S, Siren) and cult movie icon Erin Brown (Masters of Horror: Sick Girl, The Lost) star in Dead By Midnight, a retro-horror anthology produced by You42 Inc.
It’s Halloween at WKIZ when the malicious Mistress of Midnight (Erin Brown) arrives to host her annual horror movie marathon ‘Dead By Midnight’. When the WKIZ staff begins disappearing only to turn up in the increasingly darker films, it’s up to line producer Candice Spelling (Hannah Fierman) to stop the Mistress before her final and most diabolical film goes to air.
Also starring Michael Aaron Milligan (Siren) and Davi Crimmins (Atlanta’s The Bert Show) Dead By Midnight had its premiere Saturday, April 14th at the Atlanta Film Festival.
Here are what the critics are saying:
‘Dead By Midnight’ is a Love Letter to the Retro Horror Anthology – Review
MOVIE REVIEW: “DEAD BY MIDNIGHT/11 PM CENTRAL” IS A TAKE ON HORROR ANTHOLOGY THAT’S BOTH RETRO AND INNOVATIVE
Directed by: Ari Aster
Release date: June 8, 2018 (US)
When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited.
Yup, they are making another Lake Placid movie. This is actually the sixth one, and to be honest, I didn’t know there were more than two. The first movie is one of my favorites, the sequel was a disappointment, so I guess I didn’t pay attention to the rest. Anyhow, this one will air on Syfy on May 28, 2018.
In this one, Lake Placid has been closed to the public, but a bunch of people decide to ignore the warnings and all the death and go there. It doesn’t turn out well for them.
We have our first look at the nun herself from the upcoming Conjuring spinoff:
The Nun concerns a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows who are sent by the Vatican to investigate a suicide at an abbey in Romania. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret and risk their lives — and their souls — to confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun as the abbey becomes a battleground between the living and the damned.
Halloween will be released on October 19th and will see the return of Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode. Judy Greer will play her daughter and Andi Matichak will play her granddaughter.
“Halloween” is directed by David Gordon Green and was written by Green, Danny McBride and Todd Farmer.
I’ve just heard about this indie horror anthology (my personal favorite kind of movies are horror anthologies!) that will premiere this weekend at the Atlanta Film Festival. I love the title so much!
The synopsis and trailer are below.

Unfortunately they have not yet secured a US distribution, so there’s no definitive release date. Here’s hoping they get one soon!
A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.
