Editorial Reviews

Midnight Son is the story of Jacob, a young man confined to a life of isolation, due to a rare skin disorder that prevents him from being exposed to sunlight. His world opens up when he meets Mary, a local bartender, and falls in love. Tragically, Jacob’s actions become increasingly bizarre as he struggles to cope with the effects of his worsening condition. Forced by the disease to drink human blood for sustenance, he must control his increasingly violent tendencies as local law enforcement narrow their focus on him as a suspect in a series of grisly murders.

4.0 out of 5 stars NIce indy find. April 19, 2012
By alfred
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this movie, it is surprisingly well shot and paced, especially for an Indy. It has lots of atmosphere, and the director successfully creates an ever increasing sense of dread as the film unfolds. Also, the San Francisco area locations are well represented and add a nice sense of scale and intimacy to the proceedings. Some may find it less then action packed, but there is a lot of promise on display here that well cancels out whatever growing pains might be evident. Nice job.

5.0 out of 5 stars On my top 10 list July 12, 2012
By Flossy
Format:DVD
This movie offers a fresh take on the genre. I found myself easily identifying with the main character, and the melancholic mood reminded me of Let The Right One In, another of my favorite vampire movies. The choice of the scriptwriters to focus on realism was a welcome change from the overly supernatural offerings that are so common. If you like vampire flicks that are thought provoking instead of kill-a-minute (although it has its share) get this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely done and better than expected August 11, 2012
By Viva
Format:DVD
This is a very nicely done story of a man who discovers that he is turning into a vampire, while at the same time falling in love with a young woman who becomes increasingly worried about him. It was far better than expected, well acted and photographed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Saw it 2 times August 14, 2012
By MobiusX
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Don't know if this movie came out in theatre but it should have. This is how a vampire movie should be done. Vampire movies always turn out into a romantic soap opera instead of a horror movie. I'm not saying this is the scariest vampire movie, but it's how it would be if it took place in 2012. This makes the list of my top 20 vampire movies. I saw it by myself. I liked it so much invited a friend and saw it together. This is the type of movie they would show on Sci Fi channel during the month of October in celebration of Halloween. Enjoy the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart Vampire Flick for Folks who Like it That Way August 7, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Darn it I loved this movie. I've been thinking about it for days since seeing it. It's one of those films that lingers on the brain long after it's been viewed.

The acting is superb and there is such amazing attention to detail. The script is truly clever and, although a slow burn of a movie, watching it smolder and build to a bonfire is truly engrossing.

As others have said, this isn't so much a horror film in a traditional sense; it is more psychological horror intertwined with romance and a quite well executed one at that.

There was one lingering question that I still scratch my head at a bit and wish had been clarified, though:

<VER TINY SPOILER FOLLOWS!>

I'm confused about the dude who played the Caprisun drink in the car... I thought he was earlier dead and drained on the table so wasn't quite clear on how they were getting more "juice" out of him in the car ride.

<END SPOILER>

In the end, it's just a smart vampire flick for folks who like their vampire flicks smart, and the taste of it will linger on the lips and palette long after you've digested it. ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great raw vampire movie August 4, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I agree with the 4 star ratings I read before I watched this. This is a simple yet RAW vampire movie. There are no exspensive special effects but the movie is well acted and directed. The story pulls you in and holds you there. I have to admit I don't like movies that don't explain the origins of something but this one did not bother me. I think you will enjoy watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Vampire Flick August 4, 2012
Format:DVD
If you enjoy vampire movies and am tired of the same old same old, then this is a must see DVD. Its slow paced but not boring. Bloody but not gorey. Its definately not a gorefest and its definately not twilight, not a chick flick. Its about how a regular person like you and me deals with an illness he doesnt understand. Watch this movie as soon as you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing April 14, 2012
Format:DVD
This is a fabulous story of love and angst while being told through an addiction of vampirism! I loved the details in the filming and the story that was beautifully yet chillingly related! I would watch this film without the sound because it has been directed with gorgeous detail! This is a film to OWN!!!
