After Midnight on Blu-ray in June, Arrow Video Channel & Digital now

27 March 2020

Ten years into his small-town romance with Abby, bartender Hank wakes up alone in an empty home with nothing but a cryptic parting note for company. As Hank drinks himself into heartbreak and depression, Abby’s sudden departure soon becomes the least of his concerns as a mysterious monster starts clawing at his door on a nightly basis.

As the threat outside his door intensifies, Hank calls on Abby’s police officer brother Shane and best friend Wade for help. With no trace of the monster – and his behaviour becoming more erratic – his friends remain unconvinced of the creature lurking outside, and Hank slips further into his own paranoia and loneliness.

Expertly directed by Jeremy Gardner (who also takes the lead role) and Christian Stella (creators of cult favourites The Battery and Tex Montana Will Survive!), and co-produced by the team behind Spring and The Endless, After Midnight is a slow-burning, genre-bending gem about breaking up, moving on and facing your monsters-both real and imaginary.
