review by
Mike Haberfelner

  • Vlog: L'Ultimo Video di Sara: A girl (Chiara Nicolanti) makes a YouTube video just to explain why she has banned a certain individual from her channel - not taking into account the fact that certain somebody might be in her apartment ...

  • The Taste of Survival: In a post nuclear world, a lone girl is fair prey for a gang of marauders - but who's to say those marauders aren't fair prey for somebody else?
  • Nyctophobia: Not being able to sleep isn't a good thing - but sometimes, there are good reasons for not being able to sleep ...
  • Nel Buio: Due to some post traumatic shock, Eli (Ela Fiorini) has fallen into an apathetic state, which means she's unable to do anything without the help of her caring brother Nedo (Federico Mariotti). So when he one day wakes up in the middle of the night and doesn't find her in bed (or anywhere in their apartment), he panics. But once he manages to track her down again, he finds more than he had been looking for - and what he finds isn't exactly a good thing ...
  • Io Non le Credo: A man claims demons haunt him at night and thus hires an exorcist - but since the man's known as a common trickster in town, even the exorcist doesn't believe him. Or is there something more sinister going on?
  • Escape from Madness: A girl's (Martina Carniato) followed by a masked psycho (Emanuele Bianco) with a chainsaw. But she's more than able to turn the game around - but at what price?
  • Che Serata di Merda!: A farmer who has been killed a year ago comes back as a zombie carrying a sickle to decapitate those who killed him ... This film eventually goes meta, and quite hilariously so.
  • Haselwurm: Somewhere in the middle of nowhere, a young couple have tracked down and killed a mythical worm, but the chase has left the male part (Raffaele Palazzo) of the couple gravely wounded, while the female part (Valentina Viecca) becomes increasingly obsessed with their prey, even if it means neglecting her partner's urgent need of care. Thing is, his injuries are not just fleshwounds but transform him into something else, something not human ...

Sure, if one's pedantic one might argue that the segments of After Midnight do lack a common theme, both stylistically and narratively, and are just genre stories thrown together heading off in all kinds of different directions, including slasher, post doomsday, fantasy horror, zombie, found footage and whatnot - and of course, this argument has some value to it, but it fails to acknowledge that pretty much all of the segments are of a rather high quality and freak you out in one way or another, and if one of the shorts might not really be your thing for whatever reason, it's more than likely that the next one will more than make up for it. So basically a great collection for a good night of genre entertainment!
