An all-black cast in this engaging whodunit.

Audience Reviews for Midnight Shadow

I know there weren't many films with all black casts, and I do give this movie credit for being among the first African American movies, but that doesn't mean its a good movie. It's silly and predictable and uninteresting. I hated it.

What an interesting curio, I had never heard of this film before. The all african american cast makes it even more fascinating. The acting isn’t the greatest, but everyone tries. Decent mystery.
