"Midnight Heat" is a story of cops, hookers, killers, and pimps; all centered around one sleazy night in the late 1980's. A cocaine addicted homicide detective (Jake Norvell) is brought out of suspension in order to trail a local prostitute (Bianca Queen) who may become the next victim of The Scalper (Nick Foster), a serial killer who preys on the city's hookers. Meanwhile, her mentally unstable pimp (Brad Jones) attempts to get out of the business while finding it harder to protect his girls from both the killer and from an abusive rival pimp (Buford Stowers). Filmed and completed in 2007.

Finally got round to seeing this thanks to the new site redesign. Cheap is a great movie and I cant wait for Brad's next movie Shot on Shitteo.

Fuck me im retarded, posted first comment on Midnight Heat instead of Cheap. About to watch this now. Keep up the good work.

You do come off as being mildly retarded-- but no one holds is against your kind of unfleshed moron-hood, granted it might be a little funny.

ANYWAY, I don't know if I've ever seen a movie more suiting of, literally, the first 5 minutes, you did some great casting(as it were) and picked some REALLY pretty ladies, to be honest, i love your mom's 'cameo' but she does a good job.

I also wanted to say I really do dig this movie and not just them rockin' tits

After Martin killed the Scalper I was so shocked and glad for your writing,

Showed this to my Dad last night, as he loves your Snob reviews and was curious to see your films. He liked it well-enough, as he didn't mind the poor quality, as he appreciated your love for the sleaze. He had a few gripes with the soundtrack, mostly because he was an 80's Rock guy, and avoided Top 40 and pop like the plague. I loved having the chance to re-watch it, just for the genuine 80's feel to it. Next movie we plan on watching is Vice Squad, which I know for a fact is a heavy influence based on some of the quotes used. Love your stuff!

You're really good at making movies. Please do more.

Hey, Brad. I dug this movie.

This was fucking great, maybe not in the traditional sense but for what it's going for. The poor quality enhances the sleaze-value within the film, the shots remind me exactly of a cheapo crime drama from the era and the soundtrack is spot on for the delivery. I loved this for what it was going for and can't wait to see more of your flicks.

It is definitely a decent movie! I love how complex Martin`s character is. While whatching i never got out from a feeling that you, Brad, are like Orson Welles, by face and the style of acting ;) Sorry for my bad english!

Scenes that made this movie the spectacle that it is

Hey man I was ridiculously entertained by this film! Holy shit the acting was spot on for the most part! You're writing is pretty much flawless in this film and honestly the quality didn't really distract me really at all as I was just having too much fun! Now I'm a lot more like those people who look for the story and acting in films (maybe cuz I'm an actor myself) but seriously great flick!

really liked it, i also kind of reviewed it XD http://letterboxd.com/sandrocorvetto/film/midnight-heat-2011/

Whenever I hear "West End Girls" in GTA 5, it immediately reminds me of this movie. It almost makes me feel like Pimp Brad.
Rewatching a lot of sleazy 80s films lately, and something I noticed is that this could almost work as a spiritual successor to Red Heat, with Jake's role feeling a little like a more embittered version of the Jim Belushi role.

Midnight Heat Drinking Game: drink every time an 80s song pops on... not that i'm complaining. i loved this movie. the writing in particular was top notch. and Nick as The Scalper was creepy as fuck. Now i need to see Sadistic Bitch and make that shit-eating grin a reality.

Another great film from Stoned Gremlin Productions. It doesn't go exactly where I expected it to, which always makes movies more enjoyable. The soundtrack was great, too. It's mostly the sort of music I really enjoy and suits the setting perfectly.

Haven't got around to this yet but you ARE aware that the description gives away the killer's identity, right? Is he just not kept hidden in the movie anyway?
2/13/2016 01:32:09 am
You're in for a surprise my friend.
12/1/2015 11:56:09 am
Title sequence seems very similar to Drive (2011). Even has the same font...One hell of a coincidence considering this was filmed in 2007
2/13/2016 01:31:03 am
I found this quite enjoyable. You definitely showed your love for 80s sleaze.

With watching this, I've finally seen all of the older films available for viewing on the site, and I like 'em all (I watched the others before the Blip purge; I don't know what made me forget about this one for so long). If I had to pick a favorite, this would be the one I'd pick. I absolutely *love* the quality of writing behind the story and a couple of the main characters. I can't go into any real detail without spoiling it for folks who haven't seen the film yet (I can't be the only person who's scrolled through and read the comments before watching the film), but people who haven't seen the film will be in for one heck of a ride.

Watched it a second time. Gotta say that I love little details that I missed or that somehow didn't stick the first time around, so another thing I love about this movie is that it provides a nice rewatch bonus (as my previous comment stated, I can't go into real detail without going into spoiler territory).

hey! wonderful write-up. i've read many blogs earlier however haven’t examine such an informative weblog before. After analysing your blog,

Great film. Great soundtrack. Glad I finally decided to watch it.

One of my top three films, alongside Casablanca and True Romance. Without Midnight Heat I would have never made my own movies. Sublime dialogue.
Hello there! This article couldn’t be written much better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept talking about this. I will forward this information to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a great read. I appreciate you for sharing!
