Nothing says holiday cheer like a Christmas themed horror short. Check out MIDNIGHT CLEAR, a short film directed by Joe Russo (producer of upcoming horror anthology feature NIGHTMARE CINEMA and POST MORTEM podcast with Mick Garris) with a strong political element in the Twilight Zone-like twist!
Playing off a universal socio-political fear, MIDNIGHT CLEAR preys on something lurking in the back of every American’s mind, made all the more frightening by taking place on the day when our guard is down — Christmas.
