From The Midnight Movie Society Press Release
MVD ENTERTAINMENT GROUP and RUE MORGUE have teamed up to launch the MIDNIGHT MOVIE SOCIETY, a curated Subscription Video on Demand (SVOD) service specializing in Extreme Underground, Taboo and Cult Horror movies. Now genre fans can gain access to a film library of shocking underground, outrageous gore, creature features, cult classics and much more. Those with a taste for the weirdest and wildest reaches of genre cinema will not be disappointed!
“The bigger platforms are catering to the masses and have gone puritanical in many cases, making it very difficult for filmmakers to reach their audience,” says Ed Seaman, C.O.O. of MVD ENTERTAINMENT GROUP. “MVD has a great deal of this type of content and when it is live on major platforms, it performs really well. Maybe too well for some of the mainstream platforms.”
MIDNIGHT MOVIE SOCIETY will also cater to more traditional horror fare as well, pulling from the thousands of film hours from in MVD’s vast catalog. In addition, RUE MORGUE will also be finding and curating fresh and unusual content for the service.
You can subscribe to MIDNIGHT MOVIE SOCIETY for $4.99 per month, or $47.88 per year. The service launches on iOS, Roku, and web on Friday, September 13, 2019.
Interesting! They do have a solid catalog of titles to draw from. Is it enough to get horror fans to part with another $4.00 – $5.00 every month? Should Shudder be worried? I guess we’ll find out! Hopefully they have a free trial period. I’d love to at least take a peek.
