I just heard about this new indie vampire film, Midnight Son. It is 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.
While watching the trailer I was pulled into it by the passion of Jacob as well as the question , ” How did he become a vampire? and “What kind of vampire will this be?” It appears that it will stay true to many of the dark mythology of the vampire such as the need for blood and the violent nature of vampires. The movie looks very interesting and a new take on the vampire mythology.
The movie that stars Zak Kilberg, Maya Parish, Jo D. Jonz, Arlen Escarpeta, Larry Cedar, Tracey Walter. The movie is directed by Scott Leberecht and produced by Matt Compton. Click here to read about their movie experience.
