{The Midnight Horror}—"Margaux"—An Ineffective Smart House Slasher

Is it a plus or a minus that a horror film doesn't receive enough reviews to receive a TOMATOMETER rating? Margaux now has four reviews from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Most likely, none of you are familiar with Margaux (rated R; 104 minutes). The movie premiered on Paramount+ on September 9th with almost no hype. Chris Beyroot and Nick Waters wrote the screenplay for the film, which Steven C. Miller directed. Madison Pettis, Vanessa Morgan, Lochlyn Munro, Richard Harmon, Jedidiah Goodacre, Phoebe Miu, Jordan Buhat, Brittany Mitchell, and Louis Lay are among the actors who appear in the movie.

{The Midnight Horror} - Will Rob Zombie's 'THE MUNSTERS' Reboot Be Good or Bad?

Rob Zombie has made a PG-rated remake of the '60s classic television series The Munsters. Yes, you read that correctly. The director of the Firefly trilogy (House of a 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, and 3 From Hell) and 2007's Halloween remake and its bizarre 2009 sequel has rebooted The Munsters for Universal 1440 Entertainment for a yet-to-be-announced release date. Is it going to theaters or straight to Peacock or both? Only the powers-to-be knows, but I presume the world will know sooner than later.

{The Midnight Horror}—"OFFSEASON" is a Suspenseful Supernatural Thriller

Wait a minute... is Billy reviewing horror movies again? 

I planned to restart my Midnight Horror post series, but my plans were constantly sidetracked by illness, death, and other uncontrollable setbacks. Are the postings back indefinitely? That remains to be seen. I'm testing the waters, hoping to rekindle my creative mojo. Let's start with the "Offseason" and see where it takes us.

{The Midnight Horror} - SEANCE is 'The Craft' Meets 'The House on Sorority Row'

Let's start things off with a quote from COMINGSOON.NET about the new horror flick SEANCE - "Scream Meets Black Christmas." The first thought that pops into my mind is, "Which Black Christmas are they talking about?" Is it the classic 1974 film that everyone seems to love? Or is it the underrated 2006 gorefest remake? (Yes, I said underrated!) Or is it the in-name-only, godawful 2019 remake? As for Scream, are they referring to the 1995 film or its lackluster sequels? Even after viewing the film, I'm still not sure what they meant. It's more like a magicless version of The Craft meets The House on Sorority Row.

{The Midnight Horror} - Jakob's Wife (2021)

Why do I waste my time reading reviews written by the mainstream media? I rarely read other reviews before writing my own, but tonight I found myself reading a few for the vampire-flick Jakob's Wife. I usually don't care what a critic thinks of a horror film, but a specific Variety review from March ticked me off. The critic, who I won't name, stated Jakob's Wife is nothing more but "a cheap and cheerless vampire movie knock-off." Why does a vampire movie have to be cheerful? I take it this so-called critic has never watched a vampire movie? And, no, the Twilight Saga doesn't count. Cheap? It's a low-budget, B-grade horror film, enough said. A knock-off? Of what? Sure, the vampire looks a hell of a lot like Count Orlok from Nosferatu and Kurt Barlow from Salem's Lot, but I would never call it a knock-off. Good grief! Ever heard of a homage?!
