Details on "Dead by Midnight"
"Dead by Midnight" tells the story of a local TV station that holds one final horror movie marathon before being sold to a larger network. As the night progresses, more and more employees disappear from the station, only to reappear in perilous situations within the films. Producer Candice Spelling (Hannah Fierman, star of V/H/S and Siren) realizes that dark magic is at work, and must stop the show's mysterious host, the Mistress of Midnight (cult horror movie icon Erin Brown), before she screens the final film.
