Reviews:
"Shannon again plays a father in MIDNIGHT SPECIAL, and no director is better than Nichols at bringing out the tenderness in this almost Biblically fierce actor..." - 03/31/2016 Boston Globe


"[I]t’s refreshing to find yourself immersed in a film that zigs and zags between genres -- and occasionally zaps your senses with an electric charge of shock and awe." - 03/31/2016 Chicago Sun-Times


4 stars out of 4 -- "It is a breathtaking display of visual storytelling, confidently rendered by someone who understands the power of cinema." - 03/18/2016 RogerEbert.com


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "What you see is what you get. Luckily, what you get is extraordinary." - 03/16/2016 Rolling Stone


"This is a film that generates much of its suspense through genre sleight of hand." - 03/17/2016 New York Times


4 stars put of 5 -- "Through both his propulsive road-chase plot-engine and lens-flaring visual style, Nichols makes good on his claim that MIDNIGHT SPECIAL is a tribute to John Carpenter’s STARMAN and Spielberg’s CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND." - 04/04/2016 Empire


"There’s technical verve a-plenty..." - 03/18/2016 The Atlantic
