Critic Reviews for Midnight

All Critics (1)

As an early-80s footnote to a sub-genre that spawned some truly disturbing horror movies, you could probably do worse. (Like, say, Mother's Day.)

Audience Reviews for Midnight


Low-budget indie backwoods shocker where a runaway teen girl and two young petty thieves stumble into a group of satan worshippers who practice human sacrifice. An average film, but to be fair it does ok for its budget limitations. The violence isn't particularly graphic but there are a couple of nasty moments towards the end. Laurence Tierney's character was the best thing about the movie who you loathe early-on but then goes on a mission to redeem himself and you end up cheering him on at the end. But nothing very exciting happening here overall.
