The good news: Director Tobe Hooper has been invited to speak at a screening of Destiny Express, a movie he wrote and directed as a teenager, but that hasn’t seen the light of day in decades. And Hooper’s fans are ecstatic.
 
The bad news: Destiny Express proves to be a killer . . . literally. As the death toll mounts, Tobe embarks on a desperate journey to understand the film’s thirty-year-old origins—and put an end to the strange epidemic his creation has set in motion. 
 
Featuring the terror, humor, and sly documentary style Hooper devotees remember from such classics as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Midnight Movie is vintage Tobe Hooper, again demonstrating the director’s place as one of the godfathers of modern horror.

Editorial Reviews

"Midnight Movie is all Tobe, all brilliantly excessive and funny. Very cool, very enjoyable." —John Carpenter "Uses horror tropes with considerable skill and ingenuity...Hooper demonstrates an undeniable talent." —Publishers Weekly"Tobe Hooper is a Texas original and a great American filmmaker. His novel Midnight Movie is just as insane as I knew it would be.  A violent, funny and novel premise (no pun intended.)" —John Landis "Much like he did in the world of film, Tobe Hooper has brought a fascinating and twisted new vision to the world of horror fiction." – Rob Zombie"It’s catnip for splatterpunk fans...a lecherous and barbarous good time."— Daniel Kraus, Booklist
