In the new thriller Midnighters, a couple’s already strained marriage faces the ultimate test when they have to cover up a terrible crime in the backwoods of New England and find themselves entangled in a web of deceit and madness.
Midnighters is the directorial debut of Julius Ramsay (The Walking Dead, SYFY’s upcoming Krypton). The film is written by his brother Alston and exec-produced by a third sibling, Burke. The movie stars Alex Essoe, who was so great in the 2014 Hollywood horror tale Starry Eyes, as well as Perla Haney-Jardine, Dylan McTee, 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 Ramsay, 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.”
IFC Midnight is releasing Midnighters in theaters on March 2. The film will also be available to watch on VOD and digital HD from that date.
