Movie Info

Heart of Midnight is a involving, well-above-average erotic, psychological thriller directed by Matthew Chapman. Carol (Jennifer Jason Leigh) is recovering from a nervous breakdown. She inherits a nightclub from her uncle and moves in. There she discovers strange and frightening secrets about her uncle and begins to remember details of their past relationship. She battles for her sanity as her surroundings begin to seem menacing and she cannot be sure what is real and what is a hallucination. This above-average film features good performances by Peter Coyote and Jennifer Jason Leigh who have an unusual, intriguing sexual chemistry. Viewers should note a small supporting role by Steve Buscemi. Heart of Midnight, offbeat and interesting, is highly recommended.more

Audience Reviews for Heart of Midnight

This is not a comfortable movie to watch but I enjoyed it very much. The colors are wonderful, the sets are intense, and the acting is pretty good. This movie is bizarre to say the very least but that can be a wonderful thing. This movie won't be to everyone's liking but for those of you who lean towards "different" films then you'll probably enjoy it.
