In Ten Minutes to Midnight, Caroline Williams returns to the DJ booth for the first time since her star-making turn as Stretch in 1986’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Williams plays Amy Marlowe, a veteran late-night radio host on the eve of forced retirement trapped inside the station by a violent storm after being bitten by a rabid bat. The film draws inspiration from classic horror tales brought to life by Stephen King, The Twilight Zone, and other forgotten late-night horror anthology programs.
Erik Bloomquist (Long Lost) directed from a screenplay co-written with Carson Bloomquist. Adam Weppler, who also appears in the film, produced with the brothers for Mainframe Pictures. The film also stars Nicole Kang (Batwoman), Alice Kremelberg (Orange Is the New Black), and late genre-favorite Nicholas Tucci (You’re Next) in one of his final performances.
1091 Pictures has acquired North American digital and broadcast rights and is planning to release the film on digital and on-demand in early 2021. The deal was acquired by Lev Avery-Peck on behalf of 1091 Pictures and Erik Bloomquist on behalf of the filmmakers.
“The team is so enthused to have found a home with 1091 Pictures,” said the Bloomquists. “Ten Minutes to Midnight is our take on phantasmagoric chamber cinema. A movie with bombastic genre flourishes that also meditates on the kaleidoscopic nature of time. 1091’s eclectic and thoughtful filmography is welcome company, and we’re excited to be guided by their contemporary filmmaker-forward distribution principles.”
The film had its world premiere on August 14 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida at the pop-up Drive-In Horrorshow hosted by Popcorn Frights. Its European premiere is set for Grimmfest in early October.
