Over at Movies.com, Christopher Campbell writes of becoming a Midnight Madness junkie, i.e., "one of us":

Basically, it’s considered one of the finest film festival programs of its kind in the world.Read more here. And next year, if you haven't been to Midnight Madness, just sever that zombie head prefix!
Heading into my first experience of TIFF, that reputation meant very little to me, as I’m not exactly of that particular audience. So for me to now wholeheartedly affirm that it is one of the finest film festival programs I’ve ever encountered, and not just of its kind, this should not only preserve the deserved reputation it holds but also hopefully encourage other typical midnight-forgoers to sever the ‘for’ prefix (remove that head like it’s a zombie) and just go.
