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...

Critic Reviews for The Midnight Man

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 begins by striking a meteoric horror high, only to plummet back down towards repetitive genre bumbling once the game's true - and less enticing - plot begins.

There is a lot of blood spilled, negotiated and sprinkled that does not at any time raise the blood of this tedious narrative. [Full Review in Spanish]

Travis Zariwny does not take advantage of the tools that this marvelous genre contains. [Full Review in Spanish]

November 29, 2018 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

"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.
