It seems like a distant memory now, but back in March of last year we ushered in the first word for Travis Zariwny’s latest film, The Midnight Man, and what got us truly excited at the time was that both Robert Englund and Lin Shaye star in the film, and we’ve been anxiously waiting for more ever since.
So, now comes the first official trailer, and this one certainly has us hooked. While it is based upon the old Pagan ritual “The Midnight Game,” as well as serving as an American remake of Rob Kennedy’s low-budget 2013 feature of the same name, we believe this could well be the one to watch.
Check out the official trailer below and let us know if you’ll be keeping an eye on this one?
The film also stars Gabrielle Haugh, Grayson Gabriel, Summer Howell, Keenan Lehmann, Meredith Rose, Michael Sirow, and Kyle Strauts.
Synopsis: Alex (Gabrielle Haugh) is a typical teenage girl who lives with her sick grandmother, Anna (Lin Shaye). While searching through the attic, Alex finds directions to a game, which played properly, will awaken “The Midnight Man” (Kyle Strauts), an evil being who will make your worst nightmare come true.
At first, Alex and her friends think the game is harmless fun. It is—until The Midnight Man comes to play…for real. When Dr. Goodberry (horror legend Robert Englund) comes to the house to check on Anna, he can sense The Midnight Man’s presence, and warns the kids that when The Midnight Man comes to play, he plays to win.
