Coming, appropriately enough, as an IFC Midnight release next month, THE MIDNIGHT MAN is a supernatural chiller featuring horror veterans Robert Englund and Lin Shaye. Read on to check out the trailer and poster.

Arriving in select theaters and on VOD and digital platforms January 22, THE MIDNIGHT MAN was directed by Travis Z and also stars Gabrielle Haugh, Grayson Gabriel and Emily Haine. 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.”
