Critic Reviews for Midnighters
A low-budget film noir that benefits greatly from its tautness and lack of pretension.
Plays like "Blood Simple's" impressionable but less proficient kid brother, nevertheless has some devious touches of its own.
By focusing more on suspense and tension than gore, the brothers Ramsay (director Julius, writer Alston) have crafted an economical and effective alternative to the many disappointing big-budget entries into this genre.
Audience Reviews for Midnighters
Noir is a tough genre and I think it has been relegated to the lower budget market for quite some time now. In a world where your average multiplex movie costs over 100 million, a film like this struggles for existence. The film begins well and like every great Hitchcock film homage, it only gets complicated the further the film goes. If I had a gripe about the film, the performances a little uneven and the husbands arc wasn't overly convincing. The Ramsay team look to have bright future and you can see the Tv filmmaking shining through, not a bad thing in this modern era. They make the film work when it could have fallen to the side and failed miserably. There are quite a few tough scenes to watch here but the overall story works well and if you're a fan of the genre, you will find something here. 26/08/2018.
