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:

The shorts:

  • 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 vampires.
  • 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 from 1997.)

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, actually.
