Huh, no posting from Chaplin yet.

Heh, I remember watching this movie on TV when I was about 8 or 9 years old. I thought it was the greatest movie ever then. I haven't seen it but for small bits since then, and it makes me laugh. Shows you how "Sophisticated" an 8 year old's tastes are.

Loved this movie when it came out 20 years ago (I was 13) and still love it today! It's a bit cheesy, but Lee Montgomery still looks HOT to me! Great makeup on the monsters, too! I recommend this to any horror film fan. It's not scary, but it's a lot of fun!

Hello Someone Else, and as you have noticed, I did make a post earlier, as it is an annual Halloween tradition. Just wanted to return and wish you all a Happy Halloween. I also welcome any comments. or acknowledgement. Send me a hello if you'd like. This movie as I always say is an excellent movie and always has a good place on my video shelf. HAVE A BOOTIFUL HALLOWEEN and see you all next year.

Halloween is just about over folks, and I hope everyone out there enjoyed the evening's festivities. I just got finished my annual viewing of MIDNIGHT HOUR, and that final scene where Phil is dejected after Sandy disappears still brought a small tear to my eye (it's the romantic in me) 4 years after I first bought this movie, and i still love it. Cant believe Levar Burton was such a lecherous perve in this film. lol Imagine Geordi Laforge.with raging hormones. lol I wonder what some of the principal actors are doing now? What the girl playing Sandi is doing these days? The should either make a sequel or even have a reunion of some of the cast. Nonetheless a great experience once again, so goodnight folks, Happy Halloween and if you meet a strange lonely girl who looks like a 50's teenager just remember she may not be a girl in costume. (boo)

I first saw part of this movie when it first came out in the late 80s', but I didn't get to see much of it beyond the raising of the dead sequence.  This Halloween, I got to see it with Chaplin who invited me to his home to watch it with him.  Although it is a cheesy horror flick, it does have a lot of scary and comic moments (I particularly enjoyed the scenes with Kevin McCarthy and Dick Van Patten).  Also, although no one seems to have noticed, Mitch is played by Peter DeLuise, the elder son of comedian Dom DeLuise, and who earlier had made a big splash on Vancouver-shot TV series 21 JUMP STREET, costarring a then unknown Johnny Depp.  Some unanswered questions, too, at the end: what happened to Phil's mom and bratty sister?  Also, what happened to all the people turned into zombies and vampires AFTER the spell was undone?  Did they go back to normal, as if nothing had ever happened, or did they disappear with the rest of the pack from the neitherworld?  And was that singing ghost actually supposed to be the Phantom of the Opera?  And also, if everything went back to normal at the end, what happend to the stuff stolen from the museum?  Oh well, I guess one can't know everything...
  I should also point out that the Phil/Sandy storyline is based on a classic urban legend : The Disappearing Hitchiker.  You  know, the old story of a lonely driver picking up a lonely hitchiker, usually a young girl shivering as if from a cold, inspiring him to play the gentleman and offer her his coat, which she accepts.  He drives her to the address she gives him, only to find that she has disappeared without a trace when he arrives.  He then finds from the residents of the house that the girl in question had died many years ago in an accident near the spot he picked her up from.  Not believing it, he goes to the cemetery where the girl is buried, and sure enough, he finds on her tombstone his coat.  Except for the residents at the girl's former home (usually they turn out to be her parents, and in this version, the girl's home is torn down), this movie has all the classic elements of the legend, right down to the driver's coat on the girl's tombstone.  Boo!

I Love The Midnight Hour, because it is a excellent horror movie when you got Lee Montgomery as Phil Grenville and Peter DeLuise as Mitch Crandall in it, they are the most cute looking guys on the movie and this is the first movie I've saw with Peter DeLuise and he played the part as dumb jock, but I've found it very sexy.
Lee Montgomery in this movie was so cute when he had Sandy with him and it was so cute when their eyes met each other and Phil was the town hero and I think he also saved the town and the people too.

Peter DeLuise is my most favorite actor in real life, because he a wonderful and sexy actor and he played his part really good in this movie and Peter was also my favorite one on 21 JUMP STREET when Played the part as Doug Penhall.

I absolutely loved this movie the first time I saw it and I have been looking for it to show to my kids. My oldest may not appreciate it, however, I think it is perfect for my 8 year old and 5 year old.

The problem being, of course, it is so old that I can't find it anymore.

Anyway, I love the movie and it is not a bad movie.

I absolutely LOVE this movie!!  I want to buy the DVD but I can not find it anywhere.  I know Ebay has it for 56 bucks but that is insane!  Anybody on here know where I could purchase it in Wisconsin in the Milwaukee area?  Let me know would you?  Thank you sooooooo much!!

Hello to everyone. It's that time of year once again,a nd as always, I am ready to get out my copy of MIDNIGHT HOUR, dust it off and relive the wonderful experience this great movie gives me. Also I 'd like to thank the people in this post, who have been so kind to say hello to me. I plan to come every year to this post, and give my two cents, and to let you all know what a good film MIDNIGHT HOUR is, so I remind you all to catch it this Halloween. And that's the bottom line because Phil and Sandy said so. lol

Good morning fans. I usually dont write after Halloween at this post, but I wanted to thank those who have written (Thanks Lalyn) I had my annual viewing of Midnight Hour, and as I always do, I had a tear in my eye at the end. Too bad they dont do a follow up film, and have Sandy return years later, to either find out what's up with Phil, or have a new adventure of her own. If they do, then I will be there to see it. If not, then well we at least have our claasic MH to see each and every year, so from me to you all, Take care, and keep writing in to this post, and see you all next year!!!

This is my favorite movie on the face of the earth.  I watched it when it came on TV a long time ago.  Since then, I rented it about  a thousand times when you could rent it.  I am now 32 and it is still my favorite movie. Smile  I don't understand why it is so hard to find, I even emailed Anchor Bay about releasing it on dvd.  It is not a bad movie at all.  It is a great movie and it will always be my favorite.  I wish they would show it every year at Halloween time like they do Charlie Brown--how come you can buy that at every gas station around-but they won't put this clean great movie out to buy?  It will be a custom at my house to watch it as much as I can.  I hope all the actors who played in the movie are OK, and I hope they know that this was not a cheesy movie but a great addition to anyone's movie collection.  Angie
