Midnight Chronicles

Today we’re going to spotlight a movie from one of the hardest sub-genres to tackle; independent fantasy films. Midnight Chronicles from director Christian T. Petersen and Fantasy Flight Games has the uphill battle of establishing a whole world, its rules, and setting the players in place on a low budget.

What is Midnight Chronicles about? It has been a hundred years since the Shadow fell… The dark god Izrador reigns victorious. After three ages of scheming and war, Izrador has finally defeated the heroes and armies of the free races. Now the dark god rules the world of Aryth with an iron fist. Enslaved under the Shadow, the race of men leads an oppressed existence, and the Elves and Dwarves have retreated to distant forests and mountains, where their desperate resistance is slowly succumbing to the unyielding might of the Shadow. It is a time of overwhelming darkness. The fickle flame of hope is almost extinguished, its dying light guarded only by those few heroes who still dare to dream of freedom.

Good vs evil. Heroes vs villains. Low budget production values and charm? Yeah, I’m down. You can check out Midnight Chronicles online for free on Snag Films, it is also on Amazon Video (free with Amazon Prime membership).
