Anchor Bay Plays ‘The Midnight Game’

The Midnight Game

With games, as with life, sometimes it’s play or be played. But beware when it’s play or be prey…

On August 12 Anchor Bay Entertainment dares you to join…The Midnight Game. An official selection at the 2013 Miami International Film Festival, Telluride Horror Show Film Festival and SF Indie fest’s Another Hole in the Head International Genre Film Festival, The Midnight Game promises a new whole spin on the games people play.

In this eerie chiller inspired by true events, Olstead stars as a partying teen whose friends decide to perform an ancient pagan ritual found online called ‘The Midnight Game’: Candles are lit. A drop of blood is spilled. Your worst fear is confessed and an entity is summoned. But if the rules are not followed exactly, punishment is promised. Tonight, the game is not being taken seriously. A demonic horror has been unleashed, and now, even daylight cannot stop the nightmares that may destroy them all. Are you ready for the arrival of “The Midnight Man?”

With a hot cast including Guy Wilson (“Breaking Bad,” Little Black Book, The Open Door, The Moon and He), Renee Olstead (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” 13 Going on 30), Shelby Young (“American Horror Story,” Wild Child, “Days of Our Lives,” The Social Network), Valentina de Angelis (Bereavement, Everlasting, Off the Map) and Spencer Daniels (Star Trek, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), the rules are simple because there’s only one: survive!
