Movie Info

A New Year's night becomes a long day's journey into dread for one seriously unlucky couple in this wild-ride nerve-twister. On their way home from ringing in midnight on December 31, Lindsey (Alex Essoe) and Jeff (Dylan McTee) accidentally run down a man in the middle of the road. Things look bad when they panic and stash the body in the backseat. Things look worse when they discover that the stranger they hit had sinister intentions involving the couple and their family. And things go off the rails when a certain psychotic "Detective Smith" (Ward Horton) comes calling... The scarily gripping feature debut from The Walking Dead and Krypton director Julius Ramsay careens with hairpin twists and genre-defying surprises.

Critic Reviews for Midnighters

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

The intersection between crime thriller and horror is an interesting place to be, even if it doesn't fully pay off in Midnighters.

Just taut enough to work

January 31, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A crafty potboiler that offers up more twists than a piece of rigatoni, Midnighters is wrought with a palpable tension that hits amazing heights during the film's final 20 minutes.

Midnighters is riddled with unbelievable decision-making and weird, contradictory lines, delivered rather stiffly by the actors.

Noir complications metastasize from there in this clever and suspenseful feature debut from brothers Alston and Julius Ramsay.

Although I was able to see where every turn was headed, thanks to the fine filmmaking and able acting, I didn't mind; I was content to just go along for the ride.
