Critic Reviews for Midnight Kiss

"Midnight Kiss" has some interesting ideas and certainly feels original, but it comes apart a few times, especially in its final scenes.

Dec 27, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

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.

Mar 12, 2020 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

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.

Jan 30, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

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.

Jan 10, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

So the fact we have a typical, by the books slasher that is like an explosion of gayness is so incredibly refreshing and satisfying.

Jan 5, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Hulu's latest Into the Dark entry, Midnight Kiss, unleashes a suspenseful serial killer story that packs a major punch before the ball drops.

Jan 3, 2020 | Full Review…

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.

Dec 30, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Midnight Kiss achieves a level of mediocrity rendering it thoroughly unspecial.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Overall, MIDNIGHT KISS is a decent slasher that shines a necessary light on the LGBTQ+ community without diving deep into stereotypes more commonly associated with a hetero-cis P.O.V.
