“LIVING DEAD’ Legend goes Kickstarter for “MIDNIGHT” Remake


Horror legend, FANGORIA friend and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD co-creator John Russo is going back to well of one of his most widely read and respected novels, the terrifying MIDNIGHT. First adapted as a low budget but highly effective motion picture in 1982 (starring MARTIN lead John Amplas and featuring gore FX by Tom Savini), Russo is aiming to take another stab at the property this fall and is turning to Kickstarter to pad out the budget.

MIDNIGHT tells the tale of a hitchhiker menaced by Satanic cops and lethal rubes who want to use the lost girl to bring their long dead mother back to life. The cast will include CABIN FEVER’s Cerina Vincent and–believe it or not–GWAR, who are stripping off the gear to play a demented country and western band.

Skip on over to the MIDNIGHT page to drop a few dollars and cash in on some of Russo’s nifty perks!
