This film is pretty much made in the vein of a late night horror
picture marathon and is comprised of several shorts and a featurette:
- Bride of Sexenstein: Mad scientist Sexenstein (Steve
Sheppard) has built the perfect sex slave (Jade Indica) out of
prostitutes' bodyparts - but when he's bringing his creature to live,
his servant Igor (Isaac Cooper) kills sexenstein because he wants the
creature for himself. But even brought back from the dead, a creature
made from prostitutes won't forget to charge for sex ...
- Death Moon: Two buddies (Isaac Cooper, Jace Micheau) go on a
fishing trip into an area haunted by a werewolf-witch (Ada Mae
Johnson), who eventually attacks one of them, while his friend doesn't
only make a hasty getaway leaving his buddy behind, he has even lured
him here on behalf of the witch.
- Blood Money: Three gangsters (Isaac Cooper, Steve Sheppard,
Gevin Booth) make a getaway through a forest to find it infested with
- Revenge of the Hand: When granny (Ada Mae Johnson) finds
retard Joey (Jace Micheau) masturbating to a picture of herself, she
hacks off his hand. But his hand comes back for revenge ...
- Meltdown: A nuclear cloud originating from a terrorist
attack, turns a forest popular with young people to come here to make
out, into zombieland.
- Space Jizz: Three schoolgirls (Ada Mae Johnson, Sunshine
Grovedale, Sugar Saint Claire) see a meteor come down in a forest
nearby and decide to check it out. From the meteor emerges a
penishead-shaped alien that jizzes onto the girls - which turns them
on in such a way they undress to make out ... before they are turned
into zombies. Eventually, a ninja is thrown into the mix, too ...
And now the feature (featurette) presentation:
- Dong of the Dead: A bunch of Satanists raise a demon - but
are less than happy with the results, that being an undead (Isaac
Cooper) killing other people, including most of the Satanists. But the
undead is also pretty horny, and thus he rapes every woman coming his
way ... until he falls in love with a sexdoll, and with her, he
forgets his predeliction for killing altogether.
The two surviving
Satanists (Christian Curmudgeon, Jason McGee) in the meantime try to
figure out how to kill the demon, and come to the conclusion they have
to raise another demon. Bad news inasmuch as the second demon, a
flying baby, kills the two Satanists first before going on his
mission, but he only succeeds in killing the sex doll ...
(This featurette is actually a radically recut version of Matt
Jaissle's The Necro Files
Above everything else, Midnight Movie Madness is great fun: It's
a loving hommage to all those too cheap to be true genre movies
from the 1970's and 80's that played at your local drive-ins or
grindhouses and that left you craving for more despite their shortcomings.
Likewise, Midnight Movie Madness doesn't try to be Citizen Kane,
but that said, it totally succeeds in achieving the two things it has set
out to achieve:
1) Paying a (non-moronic) tribute to genre entertainment of old, and
2) at the same time tell original stories in an entertaining way.
All of this, as mentioned before, amounts to great fun. Recommended,
