MIDNIGHTERS (premiering Friday 3/2) is a layered, enigmatic thriller set in the Gothic backwoods of New England, where a young couple’s marriage faces the ultimate test after they cover up a terrible crime and find themselves entangled in a Hitchcockian web of deceit and madness. The movie is  the theatrical debut of director Julius Ramsay, who is known for his work on AMC's "The Walking Dead” and Syfy’s upcoming Superman prequel “Krypton.” The film was written by his brother Alston Ramsay, who was inspired to write MIDNIGHTERS after seeing a disturbing real life news story in the LA Times about a woman who drove home someone she struck with her car and kept him in her garage.   Midnighters premieres Friday 3/2 on VOD and in theaters in LA, New York and elsewhere.
