MIDNIGHT SHOW is an anthology feature film composed of faux grindhouse-style trailers and other vintage movie elements assembled by filmmaker Newton R. Wallin.
Undertaken over the space of four years, it’s a love letter to all things trashy and genre. From Horror to Exploitation to Industrial Films and Video Games, it has a crazed vibe that recalls 1970’s mishmash parody anthologies like THE GROOVE TUBE and KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE.
The goal behind this initial teaser trailer was to give an overall sense of the film’s sensibility using the content as more of a textural element (as well as somewhat emulate the downbeat exploitation vibe of a late 1970’s/ early 1980’s TV style spot), rather than a standard “Coming Attractions” style edit.
