Midnighters Trailer

"Look around, this isn't what we planned." A full-length trailer has debuted for a horror thriller premiering at the Los Angeles Film Festival this month, titled Midnighters, from director Julius Ramsay. Ramsay is making his feature directorial debut after working as an editor on TV shows like "Battlestar Galactica" and "Flashforward". The film is set around New Year’s Eve following a couple that accidentally kills someone on their way home. But there's a twist when they realize this might have been a setup, while other mysterious things start to happen. Starring Alex Essoe, Perla Haney-Jardine & Ward Horton. It's described as a "taught noir thriller in the vein of Blood Simple, Shallow Grave, and Blue Ruin." Looks like it could be good.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Julius Ramsay's Midnighters, direct from YouTube (via SlashFilm):

Midnight, New Year's Eve: when all the hopes of new beginnings come to life – except for Lindsey and Jeff Pittman, whose strained marriage faces the ultimate test after they cover up a terrible crime and find themselves entangled in a Hitchcockian web of deceit and madness. From young director Julius Ramsay, Midnighters is a layered, enigmatic thriller set in the Gothic backwoods of New England – the perfect place to get away with murder. Midnighters is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Julius Ramsay, a veteran from the TV world making his feature directorial debut after work on "The Walking Dead" and as an editor for "Battlestar Galactica" and "Flashforward". The screenplay is written by Alston Ramsay. The film is screening at the Los Angeles Film Festival this month, but has no US release date set yet. First impression?

    It was all ok until I saw money in the trailer. From that point on, this film has become standardized piece of Hollywood crap. I really could somehow accept the dilemma of two people who killed someone by accident, but after there is a money involved, I guess, even guilt and responsibility could be less interesting. Or especially then ...

    I liked it. And I haven't been watching a lot of trailer here lately, they've all seemed boring movies. Dunno what made me decide to watch this one, the girl in the pic was hot I guess. I laughed when he hit the guy on the road, but the drama of them trying to cover it up seemed interesting. Like how far will a normal couple go, especially when things start to unravel! But then it seemed there was some weird convoluted conspiracy storyline thrown in there to shake things up and that could be a disappointing turn.
  • Twist. Turn. TWIST TWIST TURN! A merry go round of chaos! Could go either way....
