The Creeper is...CREEPY!
15 April 2005 | by MrUFOmanSee all my reviews

The Dark Side of Midnight,I thought was great.Don't get me wrong it's not scary or gory but I still think it's great.I love low and no budget films where creativity is nonessential and there are no polished results.

Wes Olsen was awesome as the non charismatic detective Brock Johnson,I think this movie was the basis for CSI,as Brock was so scientific in his detecting and his dialogue recitation.The way he walks,talks and runs away from danger.And the ending is priceless!!

The Police Chief was great too,although he seemed to swallow a bit of the dialogue in each of his scenes.

The Lt. was awesome too,wasn't he the singer in jefferson starship?

The Mayor,what a great mustache!!

but then again even I had a mustache in 1984,please see this film,you wont regret it....too much,aj
