Midnight Kiss (Into the Dark Review)— House Of Tortured Souls

We are now 16 days into the New Year and even before we entered it, for some it’s all about a clean slate and for the other half it’s about who we were going to spend our night of celebration with, even who we would kiss at midnight.

Midnight Kiss is the first gay horror film in the Into the Dark series directed by Carter Smith (The Ruins).

Midnight Kiss takes us into a group of gay best friends Joel (Scott Evans), Cam (Augustus Prew), Logan (Lukas Gage- Assassination Nation), Ryan (Will Westwater— Max and Me) and their best girl friend a Hannah (Ayden Mayeri— Harder Than It Looks) who bring in their seventh New Year together. On New Years, they play a “midnight kiss” game, in which they hookup with anyone that fits their criteria. But this year the game turns completely ugly and ends in murder.

There ends up being a mysterious leather -clad stalker who targets the group of friends and in the murder process, throws confetti on the bloody body… how fitting with a celebration.

There was potential in this film however it was very, very slow moving and took awhile for the killer to actually appear which I think was more scary to use viewing it than the actual killings.


Even though it had its slow moving moments, I feel that horror fans should check this out. Click the trailer below and decide if this will be for your viewing pleasure.
