Scott Leberecht's promising low-budget horror character study is very much in the vein - pun intended - of early George A Romero.

Visually and narratively, Midnight Son leads us confidently into territory we almost never see, but even when things start to feel familiar, Leberecht throws us a curve ball ...

Daily Express (UK)

A thoughtful tale that is more a twisted romance than a typical shocker.

Rich Cline

Filmmaker Leberecht takes an intriguingly askance approach to the vampire genre with this dark, romantic horror film, but after after a promising set-up seems unsure where to go from there.

It might not be offering anything new to the lore of the horror film, but Midnight Son is a confident, minor work that hardcore admirers of the True Blood/Twilight cycle will want to seek out.

Better made and imagined than most [horror films].

Yet another tortured-emo vampire movie, but there's an attempt to inject a dose of plausible realism into proceedings, rather than Twilight's leaden coffee-table stylings.
