Ten Minutes to Midnight is a horror film released in 2020 directed by Erik Bloomquist and starring Caroline Williams, Nicole Kang, and Nicholas Tucci. The movie follows Amy Marlowe (Caroline Williams), a late-night radio host who is preparing for her last show at the radio station where she has been working for over 30 years. It’s a special night for her, and she wants to do things her own way.

Amy's career has seen better days. However, she has been a fixture of local radio, hosting the popular show "The Early Bird Special," which encompasses the listening audience with her relaxation, sense of humor, and easy-going personality. Over time, Amy has grown to become a beloved public figure, and even though she is becoming a relic in the eyes of those who control the network, she is determined to push past that and embrace her final show with the gusto she has always had.

As she begins her show, Amy's producer, Sienna (Nicole Kang), complains about the futility of the program, which she deems to be outdated and irrelevant to younger audiences. But Amy has nothing but contempt for such comments and is determined to go out with her style.

As the night progresses, Amy becomes increasingly strange and erratic in her demeanor, while Sienna tries to keep the show on track. Meanwhile, people start dying mysteriously one by one around them, and Amy seems to be haunted by an unknown entity. The situation quickly spirals out of control, and they find themselves struggling to survive the night and uncover the truth.

The movie is a striking and unusual mix of horror and comedy, with Williams dazzling as the film's star, imbuing scads of charisma and gravitas into her character it’s impossible not to feel bad for her. Williams carries the movie with a raw emotional weight and succeeds in making Amy a relatable and sympathetic character. Her performance imbues the character with an energy and life force that is both infectious and endearing to watch.

Ten Minutes to Midnight makes great use of evocative sound design, creating a sense of unease and dread that pervades the entire film. The striking and stylish cinematography is also a highlight, with long takes and creative camera angles that create an immersive viewing experience.

Moreover, the movie is bolstered by a strong supporting cast, particularly by Kang, who shines as Sienna, and Tucci, who plays a menacing role that adds a chilling and mysterious layer to the story.

The movie's script is cleverly written, with plenty of witty references and allusions to famous horror films, as well as deeper themes about aging, death, and the fear of losing relevance. These themes perfectly complement the horror elements of the movie, adding weight and substance to the overall narrative.

In conclusion, Ten Minutes to Midnight is a film that is both chilling and captivating. With fantastic performances, strong themes, and sharp writing, it's a movie that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats from start to finish.
