To Gardner's great credit, After Midnight succeeds as both a sweet romantic drama rooted in real-life experience and a tense creature feature with more than a few well-timed jumps
February 14, 2020
A jerry-rigged contraption of variably interesting, likable and skillful elements that only add up to one rather arbitrary goof.

While it's ostensibly about a man fending off a horrific beast, the movie's much more concerned with long flashbacks to the couple's happy days together and with asking why this fella never made an honest woman of his girl.

By the end of "After Midnight," he and the audience both may wonder whether the bogeyman and true love are equally mythical.
February 11, 2020
The film derails slowly but surely.

A strange hybrid with noble intentions.

I'm not convinced all the parts of Gardner and co-director Christian Stella's vision come together, but I admire the willingness to make a rom-monster-com in a way we haven't really seen before.

Even without a completely balanced relationship at the film's center, After Midnight offers an endearing mixture of humor and thirtysomething ennui.

This isn't so much a film about a doomed relationship, its about holding yourself accountable and saving yourself first.

Jeremy Gardner and Christian Stella's winsome tale of thirtysomething angst, romance and existential terror, is beautifully written and played.
August 27, 2019
It's both a mutually macabre and melancholic experience, all confidently delivered through Christian Stella's beautifully composed camerawork.

It's Jeremy Gardner's most accomplished film, yet.

Something Else is truly a special film and hits on topics that I wish were addressed more in horror films.

The result is a remarkably free-form bit of filmmaking that will probably turn off viewers looking for a more traditional horror experience. But if the viewer goes with its flow, they might be pleasantly delighted.

There's an honesty in Something Else that makes this man against (his) monsters story one that'll give you deep meaning, beautiful cinematography, and just the right amount of wtf.

Those seeking more horror than romance may want to look elsewhere, but if you're a fan of a good love story with a dash of, well, something else, then this movie is meant for you.

You'll laugh, you'll cry...and you'll jump right out of your seat at least once.
April 29, 2019
An effective genre-blending slow-burn creature feature with an emphasis on character over action.
April 27, 2019
Something Else is more of a rumination on modern relationships than it is a full-blooded genre film, which is what I enjoyed so much about it, making its title wholly indicative of just what kind of experience awaits fans as Gardner's story unfolds.
April 27, 2019
Sublime and emotional, Something Else is one hell of a love story, a nightmarish monster movie, and an overall fantastical experience.
