Director Scott Leberecht, producer Matt Compton, executive producer Eduardo Sanchez, and actors Zak Kilberg, Maya Parish, and Jo. D. Jonz in person!
Every time the blood seems completely drained from the vampire genre a film comes along to dispel this. Midnight Son, like Martin, Near Dark, and Let the Right One In before it, explores the murky psychological side of vampirism. The protagonist in Scott Leberecht’s terrific feature debut is a nightwatchman, a decent loner attempting to resist the temptation of blood, something that becomes harder with passing time, especially when he finds himself falling for a local bartender. It’s an effective man vs. monster parable that works equally well as a love story. A FEARnet release.
