Happy Halloween to all you bad movie fanatics out there! I thought I would be the opening comment for this film. I purchased this movie, at a mall, in Hamilton. It makes for the perfect late night viewing, especially, on Halloween night. You get to fell for the two lead characters, Phil, and Sandy, and when you find out that she is in fact, a ghost, and Phil is left alone at the end you feel sorry for him. Oh, well! As they say, love is strange. There are plenty of Vampires, zombies, ghouls, and whatever else to appease any die hard horror fan. So give Midnight Hour a chance. You may (or may not ) enjoy it.

Gotta love this movie!  I saw it about 15 years ago on tv.  I haven't seen it since then but I always remembered it.  Thanks for the recap!

   Great site!

I still remember when the show aired on TV. I wasn't to crazy about the film until sandy the cheerleader came on.
What ever happened to her in real life? She was really cute.
If you haven't seen the film its worth checking out. Just remember it was made for TV.

Oh my god!!!!! Im sixteen and I have to say that this is the best movie I have ever seen!  I have loved this movie since I was a little girl and I will always love.  Anywho... Yeah so, if I were sandy, I would love Phil too!

              Gotta go, love, peace and hair grease,
                           Helen Barrett-Chasez!

Well, here I am,1 year later, on the exact day I wrote the first comment on this movie. What a year it has been. I will be seeing my copy of MIDNIGHT HOUR again,as it is a terrific film. And once again, I want to wish all the bad movie fanatics a HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I'll be back here again next year.

This little flick has some good points.  

It never takes itself too seriously and isn't afraid to laugh at itself... an essential in any good "formula" horror film.  The dead cheerleader as romantic ghost thing actually plays quite well here. We really ARE on Sandy and Phil's side even though we know their romance can't last.

The thing about horror movies that occur on Halloween that makes them successful is the ATMOSPHERE!  Don't you feel it when you walk or drive around on Halloween?  It really IS a different kind of day and this film captures this spirit a little better than "Trick or Treat", but not as good as the orginal "Halloween".  

I give this one three popcorn kernals out of five mainly because..

   Shari Belafonte-Harper is HOT HOT HOT!

   Dick Van Patten makes his role as a vampiric dentist
   work on, well, so many levels.

   ANYTIME you can see Kevin McCarthy in a horror flick,
   makes sure you do it!  From "... Body Snatchers" to
   this one to "Twilight Zone", he's the best.  

   The old cars are cool, and I used to have a carbon
   copy of McCarthy's dark blue Chrysler New Yorker.

    Good late-night rental... three kernals!

Well it's only the 18th of October, but this year, I thought Id return a little early. Still, Halloween is almost here. Getting ready to see this great Halloween movie Midnight Hour yet again, as its becoming a tradition now to have at least 1 viewing. As I previously stated in my other two posts, I really recommend you guys and young ladies see this one. Take it from me, you'll enjoy it. See ya next year.

Does anyone know the title of the song that is playing in the background during the wine cellar scene?  I know it's a real song cause I heard it on the radio last week, but I couldn't make out any of the words in the song, and they're weren't many to begin with anyway.  I hope someone knows who made that song cause it is great background music.  Thanks!

This year, Im planning to show it to a few friends at a group film viewing time. Im always happy when I get to come here regularily every October around this same time, and post, and plan on making it a yearly Halloween tradition. See you soon or next year guys.
