Gory horror film collection Minutes Past Midnight to hit VOD in October
Horror anthologies are ubiquitous these days. It’s feast or famine. The omnibus format pretty much died in the early 1980s and then, with the indie feature film model withering in recent years, the idea of assembling a collection of shorter films and releasing them in a feature-length form was both embraced by horror fans with shorter attentions spans and did very well commercially, as the V/H/S and ABC’s of Death pictures can attest to.
Now, Five companies (Indiecan Entertainment, Unstable Ground, Rue Morgue, Uncork’d Entertainment, Raven Banner Entertainment) have recently joined forces to release a series of anthology feature films curated from the long-running Toronto-based short film festival “Little Terrors.” The first release, titled Minutes Past Midnight, is set for a limited theatrical release in early October, followed by North American VOD on October 18, then DVD on February 7, 2017.
Minutes Past Midnight features 9 diverse genre stories from directors Robert Boocheck, Lee Cronin, Francisco Sonic Kim, Ryan Lightbourn, Marc Martinez Jordan, Kevin McTurk, James Moran, Christian Rivers, and Sid Zanforlin. The film is already available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon.com.
In addition, the film is currently playing Toronto at the Imagine Cinemas Carlton (ending tomorrow at 9pm).
