Critic Reviews for Midnight Son

All Critics (21)

Scott Leberecht's promising low-budget horror character study is very much in the vein - pun intended - of early George A Romero.

September 1, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Filmmaker Leberecht takes an intriguingly askance approach to the vampire genre with this dark, romantic horror film, but after after a promising set-up seems unsure where to go from there.

January 18, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a frightening story, plausibly developed within a relatively brief running time, and the central love between the male protagonist increasingly addicted to blood and a girl addicted to cocaine is oddly moving.

Visually and narratively, Midnight Son leads us confidently into territory we almost never see, but even when things start to feel familiar, Leberecht throws us a curve ball ...

January 11, 2013 | Full Review…

It might not be offering anything new to the lore of the horror film, but Midnight Son is a confident, minor work that hardcore admirers of the True Blood/Twilight cycle will want to seek out.

January 11, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Horror films driven by ideas are thin on the ground, but behind the gory façade of Scott Leberecht's debut feature there ticks some cleverly assembled clockwork.
