    The Midnight Hour is one of my all-time favorite Halloween movies. It was an ABC made-for-TV Movie that was first broadcast on Friday night, November first, 1985. I remember that because I'd taken my son to Halloween Haunt at Knott's Scary Farm that night, but since the listing in the TV Guide sounded interesting, I set my VCR to record it while I was gone. Next day we re-wound the tape and launched in to this wonderful little gem of an '80s style film. My original tape, of course, included all the commercials. One of those is a true classic. It's a full minute-long, heavily-choreographed song-and-dance McDonald's commercial for a McD's Whopper rip-off that wasn't so much about the burger as it was about the box, which was advertised to be able to keep "The hot side hot...and the cool side cool!" So here is this whole chore of dancers holding up these over-size Styrofoam boxes while singing "Cool, cool! Hot, hot!" while dancing down a flight of stairs some park or other. But the funniest part was the commercial's pitch man. He was dressed in the height of mid-80s fashion complete with a sport's coat with the sleeves pushed up to the elbows. I had no idea who he was until I watched that old tape a few years ago. Then I recognized him. It was none other than Jason Alexander, who a few years later would make a name for himself playing the character of George on Seinfeld By the way, the burger failed, the box didn't work and McDonald's drew a ton of criticism for irresponsible packaging that will still be intact in a landfill a million years from now. Even thought The Midnight Hour was the very first ABC Circle film, the network only ran it that one time. It showed a few years later on TBS and TNT but it never really had much of an on-the-air life. It was released on VHS and later on DVD. But both are nearly impossible to find. Last I heard, Anchor Bay, who released the VHS version, decided to bury the title, so there are no more new releases. If you check on copies on Amazon, you'll find that they are going for outrageous collectors prices. Now, I would never endorse going the torrent route, but Pirate's Bay does have a decent copy available. It's not really popular, so expect the download to take awhile...days maybe. I'm just sayin'...
