The critical consensus

In truth, there's a good idea here – the vampire as artistic self-hater – but the film never quite reconciles the histrionic demands of the genre with the down'n'dirty texture it's seeking to create.

Coming to terms with his vampiric cravings provides the basis of a thoughtful tale that is more a twisted romance than a typical shocker.

Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 11/01/2013

Midnight Son is a confident, minor work that hardcore admirers of the True Blood/Twilight cycle will want to seek out.

***(*)(*)Eddie Harrison, The List, 11/01/2013

A bloody and well-acted vampire curio.

***(*)(*)Kim Newman, Empire Online, 11/01/2013

It's a frightening story, plausibly developed within a relatively brief running time, and the central love between the male protagonist increasingly addicted to blood and a girl addicted to cocaine is oddly moving.

Philip French, The Observer, 13/01/2013
