I literally just found out that Alex Essoe will be playing Wendy Torrance in the upcoming sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep. That's great news. She's cool. I went into Midnighters blind because I noticed that she was in it.
Her performance in Starry Eyes sold me on her talent to the point where horror/thriller movies starring her are now, an instant watch.
But the question is, should Midnighters be an instant watch for you? I don't know about that but if you're in the mood for a twisty Hitchcockian thriller whilst browsing through Netflix on a rainy Sunday evening, I don't see why not. The characters aren't all that likable but the story moves along at a pretty quick pace that keeps events from ever feeling dull.
Double Feature This With: Starry Eyes because Alex Essoe. That's why.
