Horrific payback comes in furry form for one of the young characters in THE MIDNIGHT MAN, opening this week. Check out our exclusive, grisly excerpt from the movie after the jump.

IFC Midnight releases THE MIDNIGHT MAN to select theaters and on VOD and digital platforms this Friday, January 19. Directed by Travis Z, the film stars Gabrielle Haugh, Grayson Gabriel, Emily Haine and genre faves Robert Englund and Lin Shaye. The synopsis: “It was supposed to be just an urban legend… On a snowy night in her grandmother’s sprawling mansion, teenage Alex [Haugh] and her best friend Miles [Gabriel] discover a mysterious box hidden away in the attic. Inside are instructions for The Midnight Game, an ancient Pagan ritual said to summon the players’ greatest fears. It all seems like harmless fun—until they unleash the terrifying spirit of The Midnight Man, an unholy force who pits them against their darkest demons and dares them to survive.”
