I make it a point not to review film–or any other “art” for that matter. The reason is that art is a subjective experience that can, if done well, also be a universal experience. I wish not to taint the intelligence of the art-viewing, art-experiencing public. I recommend this film. I will say only that.
“I love horror anthologies, so when I had the opportunity to watch Dead By Midnight (11pm Central), I was thrilled. And I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed. It’s a wildly entertaining collection of cautionary tales that brilliantly executes the creative potential of the anthology format.
Dead By Midnight (11pm Central) is a collection of 6 stories – five separate short segments with one comprehensive plot tying them together. The description is as follows:
It’s Halloween at WKIZ when the malicious Mistress of Midnight arrives to host her annual horror movie marathon ‘Dead by Midnight’. When the WKIZ staff begins disappearing only to turn up in the increasingly darker films, it’s up to line producer Candice Spelling to stop the Mistress of Midnight before her final and most diabolical film goes to air.

Each of the anthology chapters have a great premise and a solid execution. There’s honestly not a weak entry among them.
