Melanie Verlin vs Dillinger in Midnight


Actress: Melanie Verlin Project: MIDNIGHT Year: 1981 Genre: Low Budget Rural Hillbilly Satan Worship Girl Abusing Exploitation Horror Character: Nancy Johnson Traits: She’s a cute tomboy whose cop step-dad attempts molesting her, and she takes to the road, is picked up by two young guys on the way to Florida, and winds up… just look at the Genre for details. NAG RATING: 2… But it’s a built-in toughness, stubbornness. BEST PART: Former Noir icon and future RESERVOIR DOGS leader Lawrence Tierney plays her abusive stepfather, and he’s always entertaining. YOU MISSED: Melanie Verliin is the name she goes by for this, her only starring role… She’d later appear as a monkey-rights activist in George A. Romero’s MONKEYSHINES, who directed John Amplas as the title character in MARTIN, who plays the antagonist against Melanie’s character here in MIDNIGHT. Media: Cult Film Freak Review.
