After Midnight coming to Blu-ray this September!

Last Updated on July 31, 2021

Hot damn! It was only a few months ago that I finally checked out the little-known horror anthology AFTER MIDNIGHT. It came as a high recommend from a trusted source and after having to track down a copy of the flick, I gave it a watch and loved the hell out of it. For the most part.

Normally I don't hock my personal stuff here, but you can check out my full (spoiler-free) review of the film here if you're unfamiliar with the film and/or find yourself on the fence about checking it out. Basically, my thoughts are that the film is kinda like a collection of lesser TALES FROM THE CRYPT episodes – but it is still a lot of fun! 

In fact, I now count the film along with POPCORN and HELLO MARY LOU: PROM NIGHT II as my top picks for underrated/unloved horror flicks that no one seems to talk about enough. POPCORN hit Blu-ray not long ago and now we have the news that AFTER MIDNIGHT is finally hitting Blu-ray as well!

The new transfer is brought to us by Scream Factory and will be available this September. 

Not only that, but the Scream Factory guys stopped by the SHOCK WAVES podcast – which is co-hosted by Ryan Turek – and while letting out the news of AFTER MIDNIGHT's upcoming release, they also announced upcoming releases of THE SPELL, THE RESURRECTED (directed by Dan O'Bannon and starring Chris Sarandon), and A QUIET PLACE IN THE COUNTRY.

I haven't seen any of the three other flicks, but I will be checking them out asap. All four films will be hitting us this September will THE SPELL set to hit September 5th, THE RESURRECTED on September 12th, and A QUIET PLACE IN THE COUNTRY hits September 26th, along with AFTER MIDNIGHT.

If it weren't obvious by this point, I highly suggest checking out AFTER MIDNIGHT when it's released this September. I'm sure once Scream Factory reveals the special features for these upcoming releases, you will NEED to snag a copy.

You can check out more info on the four films and their release info RIGHT HERE.

We here at AITH will let you know as soon as we hear more on the special features for the four films, but until then let us know what YOU think of these four flicks – especially AFTER MIDNIGHT – on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!


Horror anthology about a college professor (Ramy Zada) teaching a course called "The Psychology of Fear". He brings his students (including psychic Jillian McWhirter) to his home, one dark and stormy night to tell scary stories. The first involves a young couple whose car breaks down by an old, abandoned house. The second has four trendy teenage girls getting lost in a bad part of town, and chased by a pack of vicious dogs. Last, we have Marg Helgenberger confronting a stalker at the answering service where she works the night shift.

AFTER MIDNIGHT was written and directed by Ken & Jim Wheat and stars Judie Aronson, Marg Helgenberger, Marc McClure, Alan Rosenberg, Pamela Adlon, and Penelope Sudrow.

AFTER MIDNIGHT hits Blu-ray September 26th!


Judie Aronson also starred in FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE FINAL CHAPTER
