February 23, 2011 -- Midday Moon, LLC, the producer of the motion picture "Midnight Son," has just released new key art for the film. To download it, click this link:

The filmmakers released this new key art to celebrate the upcoming festival screenings the film will have.
"Midnight Son" will make it's World Premiere at the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, California on March 4 @ 9:30 PM. Writer/Director Scott Leberecht, Producer Matt Compton, and several cast members will be in attendance, and will participate in a Q&A after the screening.

The film will have two additional screenings at Cinequest: March 6 @ 6:45 PM and March 11 @ 12:30 PM. It will also screen at the Omaha Film Festival on March 5 @ 8:30 PM.

"We're really excited about the festival screenings we have coming up. So many people have worked so hard on the film, and it's very rewarding to finally be able to show it to an audience," says Scott Leberecht. "Cinequest is a wonderful celebration of independent cinema, so we're really thrilled to be having the World Premiere there," adds Matt Compton.

"Midnight Son" is a dark, character-driven drama that plays on horror themes in an understated, subtle way. The story centers on Jacob, a young man grappling with a dramatic physical transformation. No matter how much he eats, he suffers from malnutrition. To his disgust, he finds the blood in his steak packaging more satisfying than the steak itself. Something is changing inside him. When romance sparks with a young woman named Mary, he wrestles with the monster he's becoming while desperately trying to keep his new craving a secret.

As she struggles against time to uncover the truth, the vampires carefully close their net with those around her questioning whether or not she is losing her mind.

After PETE, a young dogwalker, gets dumped by his girlfriend, his slacker buddies convince him to run naked through the city park. As the moon rises, the boys laugh, howl, and transform... Later, a distraught young woman named MAGGIE is contemplating suicide when she’s surprised by an enormous wolf. She snarls, baring her vampire fangs. The wolf grins and barks: Let’s play!

After a fierce, exhilarating chase through the park, Maggie falls asleep with the wolf - and awakens in a naked young man’s arms. It’s Pete. And love at first sight.

Pete’s werewolf pals and Maggie’s upper-crust vampire clan are furious. And when some mangled bodies are discovered in the woods, Pete and Maggie must fight for their lives while grappling with the awful consequences of loving a monster.

Legends of the Night

The BBC has launched a spinoff series called Becoming Human... Vampire Cafe spotted a clip below.

Shocktilyoudrop spotted this, looks like it may well have some vampire aspects to it. Legends of the Night

Monsters don’t really exist. But what if the day came when that all changed. Where the possibility of coming face to face with a thousand year old vampire, a horde of flesh eating zombies or a hungry werewolf, was real. That kind of world serves as the backdrop for Legends of the Night, a new horror anthology TV series, that is an intriguing revision of human history in a world where monsters and other "things that go bump in the night", actually do exist.

Horror in film and television is as popular as it’s ever been, however, Legends of the Night promises to be much more than just a run of the mill horror show. Creator Karl White explains, “This isn’t just a hap-hazard interpretation of a parallel history. It’s not putting creature “A” in, say Victorian England or the Wild West, cause it sounds cool. LOTN is a carefully laid out timeline with stories that focus on dark subject matter with human history serving as an anchor to put it in a real perspective. With an emphasis on building stories and character that have a purpose and an arc, rather than focusing on worn out clichés, cheap shocks or blood and gore.”

Legends of the Night is also taking a different approach to building a fan base that has started before the show has even found a home. White has started a website and an online petition as a unique grass-roots campaign to raise awareness for the idea. He is seeking help from horror fans everywhere to get the series on the air. “I want fans to be part of the process in getting Legends of the Night on TV. The response so far has been great. I think people see that it’s something new and fresh, something that is lacking in horror today, and because of the potential they’re behind it.”

There is a recap of SyFy's Being Human here.

Richard Jenkins talks about his role in Let Me In here. has an interview with the author of Angel of Vengeance, Trevor Munson here.
