This year kicked off with not one but two brand new Robert Englund-starring horror films, including the now-streaming-on-Netflix Nightworld. And then there’s Travis Zariwny’s The Midnight Man, now available for VOD rental and headed to Blu-ray.
Scream Factory announced today that they’ll be releasing both The Midnight Man and Devil’s Gate, two IFC Midnight titles, on Blu-ray this coming June 5.
In The Midnight Man…
“On a snowy night in her grandmother’s sprawling mansion, teenager Alex (Gabrielle Haugh) and her best friend Miles (Grayson Gabriel) discover a mysterious box hidden away in the attic. Inside are instructions for The Midnight Game, an ancient pagan ritual said to summon the player’s greatest fears. It all seems like harmless fun to Alex and Miles — until they unleash the terrifying spirit of The Midnight Man, an unholy force who pits them against their darkest demons and dares them to survive. Horror legends Robert Englund (A Nightmare On Elm Street) and Lin Shaye (Insidious) costar in this terrifying, supernatural game of cat and mouse.”
In Devil’s Gate…
“What unholy force lies locked away in this crumbling, booby-trapped, middle-of-nowhere farmhouse? When a woman and her son mysteriously vanish, FBI agent Daria Francis (Amanda Schull) is dispatched to the small town of Devil’s Gate, North Dakota to investigate the number one suspect: religious fanatic Jackson Pritchard (Milo Ventimiglia), husband and father of the missing persons. But when Francis and local deputy Colt Salter (Shawn Ashmore) arrive at Pritchard’s foreboding property, they discover much more than they bargained for lurking in the basement. Unfolding over the course of 24 delirious hours, this head-spinning sci-fi creature feature hits viewers with a bonkers blitzkrieg of genre-bending twists and turns!”
