Lindsey and Jeff Pittman are on their way home from a New Year’s party. Their marriage is frosty, the atmosphere is tense and the darkness lies like a damp blanket over the roads. Suddenly a man appears on the road in front of them and the disaster is a fact before they have barely blinked. They have run him over. Properly. And what follows is a staggering spiral into the darkest corners of the human mind and life as more clusters, truths and dark secrets come up into the light.

Director Julius Ramsay has a background as TV editor and director for shows such as the  Battlestar Galactica reboot and The Walking Dead. Midnighters is his feature film debut with a seriously smart script written by his brother Alston Ramsay. Together they have created a tense, dark, claustrophobic and insanely thrilling Hitchcockian thriller with a lovely unpleasant splash of horror.
