Midnight Madness has gotten to me

Midnight Madness Yellow Team

“Midnight Madness.” Ah, good old “Midnight Madness.”
This film is just plain fun, strange and a perfect snapshot of the late 1970s and early 1980s.
I first saw this when it hit cable in the mid-1980s. It’s a great bit of fun and I can remember getting home from school and watching it again and again with my brother and sister.
In fact, it got to be such a legend in our house, that once it finally left the HBO lineup, it became nothing short of the Holy Grail of video tapes. I looked for it on video for almost 10 years!
Finally, after I “grew up”, went to college and moved two states away, I found a copy of it in a little video store in Portsmouth, Ohio (I’m originally from N.Y.). Unfortunately, I couldn’t convince the store to sell it to me! I called several times and begged the owner for it but to no avail. Eventually, I got my girlfriend to sweet talk the owner into selling it.
And now, it’s mine! Mine! Mine! Mine! Now if someone who went on a 10-year quest to see a movie isn’t convincing enough for you to rent it, then I don’t know what I can say!
