The Midnight After




Seventeen people get on a minibus in Hong Kong, travelling from Mongkok to Tai Po. After going through a tunnel, strange occurrences start to happen around them: once crowded streets become deserted, a couple of passengers get offed through mysterious circumstances, plus the appearance of a strange figure in a gas mask and many other oddities. Is it the end of the world as we know it for our motley crew?

Based on a viral web novel by a Hong Kong writer with the quirky moniker of Mr. Pizza, The Midnight After is a crazy escapade brimming with horror and comedy in its most absurd - a postmodern treatise on the people and spaces in Hong Kong that baffles in tandem with the complexity of its collectivity.
