Minutes Past Midnight full movie review - "Minutes" Will Provide Hours of Entertainment!
Face it, guys. Most anthologies are almost as bad as sequels. They usually contain not-so-special stories that are neither cohesive, well thought out, or are executed very poorly.
Here is the exception! "Minutes Past Midnight" was--for the most part-- extremely entertaining. Nine individual tales are told and the majority hit their mark. There was only a couple that I didn't care all that much for, but there were three I thought could easily have been taken a step further and made into full-feature films.
"The Mill at Calder's Inn" was one of the best. It is an animated ghost story that is Grade A from beginning to end. The look, the feel, the characters--everything works, and works extremely well. My next favorite was "Roid Rage." Yes, it is WAY over the top-- especially the subject matter. But, c'mon, who couldn't love a story about a killer hemorrhoid?! I laughed until I cried! My next favorite was "Feeder." Extremely disturbing and frightening, this one delivers on the horror aspect. The only two shorts I felt didn't deliver were "Awake" and "Timothy." They weren't bad, mind you, but they were not close to the other stories.
Rated R for graphic violence, brief nudity, and language, "Minutes Past Midnight" will deliver a very good time to anyone who watches. Highly Recommended.
