Midnight Movie

 (2008)

Midnight Movie Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

At a run down theater in a sleepy suburban town, a group of friends get together for a midnight screening of an early 1970's horror film. The director/star is thought to have died five years earlier in a psych ward massacre. But the detective and doctor who witnessed the aftermath of the bloodbath suspect that the director was not a victim, but the perpetrator of the killings and is still on the loose. What none of them understand is that he has enshrined his soul into the film itself. As the film starts, the kids heckle the old black-and-white scenes, but are jolted when the movie's gruesome killer butchers one of their friends on screen! They realize that it is not the prank that they had hoped it was as they soon become the stars of the very movie they are watching on the screen. Caught between the world of reality and the screen's flickering shadows, these unsuspecting viewers fight to stay alive in the locked theater.

Midnight Movie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 19Mbps), Midnight Movie offers a clean presentation that largely surpasses its low-budget roots. Fine object detail possesses a high level of clarity in most aspects of the image, revealing every atmospheric nuance on the surroundings of the grimy theater. Unfortunately, I'm a bit concerned with a discovery that one of our old transfer-related enemies has cropped up on this release. Looking closely for blemishes, pores, or stubble on the surface of faces reveals moderate definition, and there appears to be a slight haziness that obscures the finest textures. The same thing can be said for fibers on clothing, causing a degree of concern regarding the use of DNR. It's certainly not bad enough to warrant a significant markdown in my video rating, but is still worth mentioning. Moving along to the color scheme, I'm fairly certain this reflects the director's intentions in recreating the source material, but viewers expecting a vivid spectrum will need to look elsewhere. Between the heavy incorporation of yellow filters during indoor sequences, the dark interior shots of the theater auditorium, and the black and white photography of the vintage film, there's simply not much room for colors to pop off the screen. When they do get a chance to shine (see the early scenes in the theater lobby for a good example), the transfer does a fine job delivering robust hues. Equally impressive, are the depth of black levels, and the proficiency of contrast in delivering differentiation through difficult material. Dark interior shots are usually the breeding ground for lost shadow detail, but my worries were soon put to rest on this release.


Midnight Movie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The audio presentation is equally proficient, creating a strong, atmospheric sound design that's laced with a mixture of subtle and jarring environmental noises. From the shrill screech of the grinding wheel sharpening the killer's instrument of destruction, to the trickling of water droplets in storage hallway of the theater basement, every minor detail comes to life with a wonderful sense of clarity. As with any good horror film, Midnight Movie manages to immerse the viewer in a world of fear, utilizing extensive surround activity that never lets up. Bullets zing from speaker to speaker, and the tell-tale shuffle of the killer's bum leg can be heard creeping up behind you from the rear sound field. Beyond the impressive surround activity throughout the film, the lossless mix also contains a perfect volume balance between the dialogue, effects and music. I never found myself straining to hear the conversations between characters, and although the music is a bit generic, it rarely pulled my attention away from the pervasive tension created by the environmental effects. It's rare to hear such an impressive sound mix on a low-budget film in the horror genre, making Midnight Movie a stand-out presentation among its peers.
