MIDNIGHT SON is the feature directing debut of visual effects artist Scott Leberecht; we last wrote about it when it played at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal (read our mostly-positive review HERE) and now it's ready to see the light: the film hits DVD on JULY 17th courtesy of Image Entertainment.
We got our mitts on the DVD art, which is pictured; yes, it looks initially like they're simply copying the TWILIGHT thing, but thanks to those nasty holes in the gal's neck and the overall ghoulish disposition of the vampire, it's a bit nastier.
Produced by Eduardo Snachez, MIDNIGHT SON is the story of Jacob, 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, a local bartender, and falls in love. Tragically, Jacobís 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.
MIDNIGHT SON stars Zak Kilberg, Maya Parish, and Tracey Walter. The only special feature will reportedly be an audio commentary by the cast and director. You can pre-order the DVD right HERE.
