, 9% Rotten Tomatometer Score
  • Dull and predictable, Midnight in the Switchgrass squanders an evocative setting and some committed performances on a would-be thriller that rarely raises a sweat.

    If there were still shops around where one could rent or buy videos or DVDs, this is the sort of movie you'd expect to see in the straight-to-retail bargain bin.

    It's a functional piece of exploitation - an efficient little crime-porn snuff-thriller potboiler. It's like a fast-food meal that makes you think, "Okay, that wasn't good for me, but I got what I paid for."

    This formulaic dud recycles every movie/TV cliché about cops looking for a serial killer who targets prostitutes ... There are zombies that have better personalities than almost all of the characters in this dull and dreary crime drama.

    It's not terribly bad, but it's not really good either. Unless you are a serial killer film completist or a big fan of Lukas Haas, I can't really recommend this. The major feeling that I had while watching MIDNIGHT IN THE SWITCHGRASS was tedium.
