The new thriller Midnighters concerns a couple, played by Alex Essoe and Dylan McTee, whose already 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.
Midnighters is directed by Julius Ramsay (The Walking Dead), written by his brother Alston Ramsay, and executive-produced by a third sibling, Burke Ramsay. The film costars Perla Haney-Jardine, Ward Horton, and Matt Myers.
“This film is the result of a three-year collaboration between three brothers from a small town in North Carolina,” says Julius in his director’s statement. “While the film is indeed a thriller with many elements of the genre, it’s also an examination of the fault-lines that lie beneath a marriage, and what happens when those cracks start to explode. Our parents had a rocky relationship which ended in divorce, and I think that that, coupled with our love of scary films, was the genesis of Midnighters.”
