THE MIDNIGHT MAN: C- 

“The Midnight Man doesn’t like to lose,” warns Robert Englund in IFC Midnight’s latest release. In fact, he loves to cheat—the film leaves audiences feeling cheated, too. Devoid of sense and thrills, the film is a mess. Its premise is simple: dumbass teenagers must survive an urban legend which preys on their fears when they play a game found in the attic. Lin Shaye and Robert Englund—the film’s powerhouse draw—can’t save the material, even though they give their all. Aside from an eerie prologue, The Midnight Man fails to conjure a good reason to finish this game.
