80s/90s horror- book with monsters


Hope someone can help me with this:-)

The story was about a Book: a book with scary monster stories in it. Every time someone read from the book after midnight, exactly after 12 O'clock, the creatures come to life and hunt down the people who read from the book.

Any chance it is "Saturday the 14th"?

"a young boy discovers a mysterious book describing the curse hanging over the date of Saturday the 14th. Opening the book releases a band of monsters into the house,"
Thanks for the comment :) but  unfortunately thats not the film I'm looking for
I remember a girl sitting on hthe sofa and opening the book and reading ..  then she leaves the book open and at midnight the monster from that open page comes to life
Maybe this one?:
The Haunting Hour: Don't Think About It

The year does not match, unfortunately.
No, unfortunately it's not the one :-(
I don't think group of children were involved in the film
There are a ton of book horror movies, but I cannot seem to find the specific midnight statistic.... can you remember anything else? Was it in english? Not a kids movie? Was it something dealing with a Necronomicon book?
Yeah it was in English and definitely it wasn't a kids movie.
Maybe it was about a necronomicon book but I'm not sure, because I was very little when I watched it.
I remember when the woman read from the book she left it open and fall asleep on the couch and when the clock turned 00.00 then the monster from that open page came to life and started chasing the people in house ..  Can't remember if they burned the book in the end ...
That's all :-) it was very interesting and scary movie
Thanks for the link :-) I've checked it but none of those films are the one I'm looking for.
It's seems like that film magically disappeared ... Don't know where to look for it
