A wonderful movie. I love to see it over and over again (by jimmyplm)
The Midnight Hour is, in my opinion, the best tv movie ever made. It was scary and funny. It had everything a person could want to see on a Halloween night. I watched it when I was five years old when it came on the television. It quite possibly could be the movie that made me the horror fanatic that I am today. I absolutely loved it, especially the musical number towards the end of the movie. Now on amazon.com they are offering a collector's edition for sale. I promptly bought myself a copy and I advise any fans to do so. A movie like this one might not be around forever. People just <more>
I was less than 10 years old when I watched this movie but I remember it because I enjoyed watching it so much. I remember getting a chill at the end. It was a good mix between comedy, thriller and romance.
Why I like this movie (by kirbskid01)
I've seen this movie several times, and would like to say to this day it still remains one of my favorites. I like it so much because I love vampires and things like that. It was also the first so called vampire movie that made me laugh and had a real point behind it. I would like for my kids to see it before they start thinking their mom is a head case you know talking about a movie that doesn't exist . I would like to buy it so I can watch over & over , but can't find it anywhere. And believe me I have looked everywhere I could think of. Most people I ask look at me like I <more>
have stripes on my face. Can anyone help me find it????
I recommend this movie to everyone!!!! (by bigdaddylg)
I watched this movie when I was 10 and have been in love with it for years. I love vampires and and they made them look less gore which made it more kid friendly. It has just the right amount of other monsters and special effects, for that time, in it to get its point across. It's an annually watched movie in my household. I have the VHS tape and just last year, I found it on DVD. It has been restored to an excellent quality. This is an excellent family movie for Halloween that can be watched over and over again. I would recommend a remake be done maybe using some of the previous <more>
characters if they are available!!! I will give it 4 stars **** .
This was a really good Halloween movie that pretty much anyone could watch and enjoy. It is quite a few steps above todays weak plot, whack 'em and hack 'em Halloween movies and all their predictable "don't open that door" scare scenes. It offers something for everyone; some comedy, teen romance, a couple of scares and a great musical scene reminiscent of Michale Jackson's Thriller near the end of the movie. It should be a cult movie. I would watch it every Halloween. I look for it every year around this time, but in recent years have been very disappointed that it <more>
has not been on. There is a good cast, with Lavar Burton in one of the starring roles.
Unwitting prototype for all the family-friendly Halloween television films of the '90s and beyond (by drownnnsoda)
Released as a television film on NBC in 1985, "The Midnight Hour" focuses on a group of teenage friends in a small New England town who accidentally unleash all the demons from hell on Halloween night after reciting an incantation they discover sealed in a trunk of clothing and artifacts that they stole from the local museum. Pretty soon, there are goblins, vampires, werewolves, and zombies everywhere you turn, and it's up to the class nerd and the ghost of a cheerleader to put a stop to it.Although I wasn't even alive when this film was released, I get the sense that it was <more>
important to the childhoods of many people in the generation before myself; it seems like it was their "Hocus Pocus", and with good reason. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that this film was likely an inspiration on "Hocus Pocus" and other films of its type. "The Midnight Hour" is really the quintessential Halloween film, in the classic, family-friendly sense of the word. Ghouls, goblins, zombies and witches; Halloween parties, local legends, and a living dead Suzie Q round out the proceedings here, making up a truly delightful film. I watched this film knowing next to nothing about it. In fact, I assumed it was a zombie splatter flick based on the DVD cover, and was surprised by what the film ended up being, which is anything but. Given that it was made for television broadcast, the film is relatively bloodless, free of language and nudity, and is really not all that scary though there are some really well-done moments of horror, namely the town square scene . It is, however, atmospheric, well-written, endlessly entertaining, and full of great sequences and even some funny moments. The TV-movie nostalgia factor bleeds through the whole film, and even had this millennial longing for the days of VHS tapes and Disney channel Halloween movies. The good-spirited charm is the real attraction here, and, despite the dated aspects of the film mainly in the special effects , it does feel timeless.The cast features relatively well-known actors, namely Shari Belafonte, Peter DeLuise, Dick Van Patten, Deedee Pfeiffer, and Kurtwood Smith, and the performances here are far above average. The soundtrack is also a real highlight, with killer tunes by Creedence Clearwater Revival, Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs, Three Dog Night, and even The Smiths adding to the film's incessant charm. It also features its own original dance number which is goofy and absolutely corny, but I find it hard to question or even attempt to criticize it. The romance subplot between Phil and Sandy will also give you warm-and-fuzzies.Overall, "The Midnight Hour" is a joy. As one of the first if not the first Halloween films made for television, it really is a prototype for all of the 1990s' and early 2000s' made-for-TV Halloween films that I grew up watching; I was constantly reminded of them while watching it, actually. Is this film scary? Of course not. It's family-oriented. Is it a horror film? Sort of. More than anything, it's really just a well-written and wildly entertaining example of mid-'80s television offerings, and an absolute Halloween delight. While I no doubt love my gory slashers and dark thrillers every October 31st, "The Midnight Hour" is a new and welcome addition to my annual All Hallow's Eve horror marathons. Highlights: the midget goblin slurping up the punch, Phil and Sandy's adorable love affair, the vampire attack in the basement set to "How Soon Is Now?", and Kurtwood Smith before he was on "That '70s Show". 9/10.
One of my favorites for a family Halloween night... (by Wikkid_Gamez)
I love these old made for TV holiday movies... Anyone wanting to watch it but having trouble finding it should check out YouTube... You can find the whole movie there to watch for free among many others like it! Fun for grown ups and kids alike. Perfect close to Halloween movie night with the family. Its cute, Halloween theme with bits of spooky fun complete with funny parts. Its not scary at all, at least not for most. Making it a great kid friendly addition to a fun night or background noise for a party.
