Director Christopher Ray (Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus) brings us William Baldwin, Richard Grieco and horror legend Bill Moseley in Minutes to Midnight. The trailer sets us up for what appears to be the standard slasher story. A group of friends go to a lodge where terrible murders happened years before. I wasn’t very impressed at first and was about to write this off as just another remake of the same movie we’ve seen thousands of times. Then, near the end of the trailer, someone has their skull crushed in with what can only be described as the ball and chain portion of an enormous flail. If this is the weapon the bad guy is going to be using to kill, this movie just might be worth your time.
The film’s central plot begins with a group of seven friends. They have no idea of the dangers that lurk near their small ski lodge. They hope to have an exciting and enjoyable time on New Year’s Eve. But, a local legend is emerging from the underbrush. Someone knows about this killer’s past and these seven friends must discover more about this hunter, before they face his brutal blade.
Minutes to Midnight is presented by ForeverMaur Films, Possum On The Half Shell, LLc and was produced by DeInstitutionalized, LLc. They have developed this film with a blend of action and horror. Producer, Gerald Webb has brought an all-star cast to the production, including: William Baldwin ( Flatliners), Bill Moseley ( The Devil’s Rejects), Richard Grieco, Viva Bianca and Dominique Swain. Webb said of the film’s tension “several cast members were visibly shaken by the level of horror and action entailed in making the film. We’re happy to share that terror with audiences everywhere.” More of that terror can be seen now!
