Supernatural chiller The Midnight Man boasts a pair of horror movie icons in juicy supporting roles, but Lin Shaye of Insidious fame and A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Robert Englund can’t lift this routine effort out of the ordinary. And given the film’s shortcomings there’s no way that its eponymous bogeyman – a remorseless fear-feasting figure unwittingly conjured up by drippy teenagers Gabrielle Haugh and Grayson Gabriel after they discover an enigmatic children’s game in the attic of a rambling old mansion – will ever become a cult monster.
Certificate 15. Runtime 95 mins. Director Travis Zariwny
