Just when Jack Jones is about to give up his career as a novelist due to his increasing writer's block, a mysterious jar of blood appears on his doorstep. The events that unfold not only get his creative juices flowing, but leave a trail of blood in Jack's wake.

Jack has to finish his latest novel but he has The Midnight Disease or writer's block. Just when he's about to give up a bottle of blood shows up on his doorstep. Jack has no idea where it come from or who left it there but he soon finds out that it summons a muse of sorts to write his novel for him, the only problem is once the blood is gone Jack will need to get more to keep the novel going. As the bodies begin to pile up the police seem to get interested in Jack and he begins to slip deeper and deeper into madness.

"The Midnight Disease" is a small Indie thriller set in one room but don't let that fool you this is a well-written story with excellent performances all around. As the film moves along you being to question what is really happening, is it really a blood thirsty muse forcing Jack to commit murder or is there something else going on here. I will let you see that for yourself but I really enjoyed this little gem of an Indie. If you like a good horror or thriller that is engaging and makes you think then I highly recommend picking this one up.

Credit must go out to Director's Ryan Fowler and Robbie Ribspreader for creating such a clever story on a small budget, this goes to show you don't need a big budget or A-list stars to make a good film. Congratulations to everyone involved in the film and I look forward to seeing what they all have coming next. In the meantime I recommend picking this up, if your a horror/thriller fan then you owe it to yourself to check it out.
