MONSTER PICTURES present MIDNIGHT SON, the story of a young man’s thirst for human blood which threatens to destroy his relationship with the woman he loves, to be released on DVD on 11 February 2013 – An alternative Valentine’s Day love story of the vampire kind!
From the director of The Blair Witch Project, MIDNIGHT SON is the story of Jacob (Zak Kilberg, Zombie Strippers!, Lincoln Heights), a young man confined to a life of isolation, due to a rare skin disorder that prevents him from being exposed to sunlight. His world opens up when he meets Mary (Maya Parish, How I Met Your Mother) , a local bartender, and falls in love. Tragically, Jacob’s actions become increasingly bizarre as he struggles to cope with the effects of his worsening condition.
Forced by the disease to drink human blood for sustenance, he must control his increasingly violent tendencies as local law enforcement narrow their focus on him as a suspect in a series of grisly murders.
Directed by Scott Leberecht, a well-known name on the festival circuit, MIDNIGHT SONis a twisting, terrifying tale of vampirism and humanity and how the two conditions can intertwine. Having wowed audiences when it received its UK premiere at Frightfest, the film was recently screened to a packed audience at Horrorthon in Dublin. The film receives a limited UK theatrical release on 11 January 2013 followed by a DVD release in time for Valentine’s day on 11 February 2013.
I’m sure there’s one huge question on your mind after reading this press release: You’re probably wondering out loud, “I didn’t realize that Scott Leberecht was one of the director’s of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.” Well he’s not. This must be an oversight during the final proofreading. Regardless, MIDNIGHT SON can be found at the following outlets:
