Growing up as an impressionable genre fan, it’s always fun when you get to that point where you start to recognize certain actors’ faces in various horror movies.
For me, I remember at age 14 sitting in a theater for LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III, and having my little mind blown by this bad-ass named Benny that was going toe-to-toe with Leatherface, and then realizing “Hey, that’s Peter from DAWN OF THE DEAD!” From then on, I always knew who Ken Foree was. (Or “Ken Force,” if you initially looked at that misprinted LEATHERFACE one-sheet, long before you could confirm these details on things like the IMDB.)
He’s always been one of my favorite horror icons, and through the years, it’s been fun to see him pop up in everything from Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN and THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, to Stevan Mena’s comedy BRUTAL MASSACRE. Even an appearance on the 90’s FLASH TV series, which I remember fondly!
Foree reached out to let us know he’s back with a handful of genre projects!
Up first is one he both starred in and helped produce. It’s called THE MIDNIGHT MAN, and Foree told us, “I think you’ll like this film. It’s enjoyable, fun, and great for a date. Tell your friends who want a light night of comedy with a dash of suspense and horror.” Let’s take a look at the first teaser trailer for THE MIDNIGHT MAN!
No release info just yet on THE MIDNIGHT MAN, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear more.
In the meantime, you can find the full synopsis and one-sheet poster for the flick below!
Synopsis: A dysfunctional married couple heads to a remote rental home to work on their struggling marriage. Kyle’s gambling debts have him in deep with the wrong kind of people. For fun, Jessica suggests they play a game from her childhood: conjuring the so-called Midnight Man, a malevolent entity. An ominous masked figure is also stalking them through the woods.
Soon, Hamilton, a smooth and sophisticated “accountant” comes to collect. And then the fun begins. The mob enforcer terrorizes the couple and forces them to confront certain realities about their relationship. Will Hamilton collect Kyle’s debts? Who is the masked figure lurking in the woods? And, most importantly, who or what is the Midnight Man?
