"Midnight Kiss" has some interesting ideas and certainly feels original, but it comes apart a few times, especially in its final scenes.
The power in the rape-revenge subgenre comes from the final girl reclaiming her agency, and while My Valentine's ending offers up a variant of that, it feels empty.
In spite of the lack of bodies hitting the floor, this is an entertainingly fluffy addition to the queer horror canon, and a reasonably smart slasher mystery.
Midnight Kiss is a slasher with representation on its mind, a dagger in its hand, and films like Knife + Heart on its side. A solid Into The Dark that wraps "whodunnit?" scripting in glamour, sensuality, and mistrust.
So the fact we have a typical, by the books slasher that is like an explosion of gayness is so incredibly refreshing and satisfying.
Hulu's latest Into the Dark entry, Midnight Kiss, unleashes a suspenseful serial killer story that packs a major punch before the ball drops.
One of the big issues with Midnight Kiss is that it takes too long for the killer to become a true threat to the main characters.
Midnight Kiss achieves a level of mediocrity rendering it thoroughly unspecial.
