Movie Info

It was supposed to be just an urban legend... On a snowy night in her grandmother's sprawling mansion, teenage Alex (Gabrielle Haugh) and her best friend Miles (Grayson Gabriel) discover a mysterious box hidden away in the attic. Inside are instructions for The Midnight Game, an ancient Pagan ritual said to summon the players' greatest fears. It all seems like harmless fun-until they unleash the terrifying spirit of The Midnight Man, an unholy force who pits them against their darkest demons and dares them to survive. Horror legends Robert Englund and Lin Shaye (A Nightmare on Elm Street) costar in this terrifying, supernatural game of cat and mouse. Play at your own risk...

Veterans Englund and Shaye admirably give it their all, but their best efforts are not enough to elevate the subpar material directed in mechanical fashion by Zariwny.

Takes nearly half its running time to get to the scary stuff - and then keeps the lighting so dim that it's hard to make out which shadowy figure's the monster.

"The Midnight Man" isn't exactly deep and the film is not quite sure how to stick the landing, but as a trifle offering a stylish sheen and a handful of effective chills it proves more successful than not.

Unfortunately, once the mystery of the game is solved, many unresolved questions arise about its antecedents and the whereabouts of the characters presented in the opening sequence. [Full review in Spanish]

While by no means without its faults, The Midnight Man from director Travis Zariwny is a good time horror film that fans of the genre will love.

[This] horror opus still manages to be a maddening waste of time, things building to an annoying and deeply unacceptable climax that's nothing short of terrible.
