Indie Film "Midnight Son" Bares Its Fangs

It's always a pleasant surprise to check the 'ole Clubhouse mailbox and find a slew of indie artists and filmmakers eager to share their latest project. The difficulty often becomes separating the good from the bad... and the bad from those better left to the X-Files. Luckily, Midnight Son is a "gritty, realistic look at the vampire genre" that marks the debut of writer/director Scott Leberecht. Backing up Leberecht is Matt Compton as Producer and Eduardo Sanchez as Executive Producer (co-creator of The Blair Witch Project.)

Channeling Romero's 1977 stab at the vampire subgenre, Martin, Midnight Son seems to take a similar approach in its attempt to blur the line between reality and fiction. According to the site,
the story of Jacob, a young man confined to a life of isolation, due to a rare skin disorder that prevents him from being exposed to sunlight. His world opens up when he meets Mary, a local bartender, and falls in love. Tragically, Jacob’s actions become increasingly bizarre as he struggles to cope with the effects of his worsening condition. Forced by the disease to drink human blood for sustenance, he must control his increasingly violent tendencies as local law enforcement narrow their focus on him as a suspect in a series of grisly murders.
