      G M A lot of talk and too little action and scares to be a good horror movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolute rubbish, waste of 2 hours. Basically some birds die on their porch, they dream about the lake, make a dance routine, and then leave. Literally nothing happens. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member There are creepy elements, but it ends up feeling like a group of whiny sisters who are not all that interesting. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie did not even tell a story, let alone provide real entertainment. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Cameron M Our leads are great in their roles and the film unnervingly works in some myth into its mystery but the quiet disturb can only hold attention for so long until Midnight Swim's mystery goes from flowing to stagnant. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/19/15 Full Review Audience Member 6.6/10 The performances in this film were very good and with the mythology really carried the film throughout. It was interesting enough and mysterious, although it never reach the point of being completely creepy. But overall, it was a nice story with strong performances and a very interesting mythology behind it all. ~August 17, 2015~ Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Martin Tsai Los Angeles Times The family drama unfolds more like a mystery, gradually revealing a dynamic fraught with emotional trauma. Jun 25, 2015 Full Review Andy Webster New York Times The pieces don't entirely cohere, but Ms. Smith has a promising sensibility. Jun 25, 2015 Full Review Michael Nordine Village Voice In her debut feature, Smith is careful to toe the line between skepticism and belief, never allowing us to fully dismiss or embrace the mystic elements. Jun 23, 2015 Full Review Dolores Quintana Dolores Quintana THE MIDNIGHT SWIM is one of those unsung gems of independent film. Willing to make choices that buck the conventional rules of filmmaking, the film tells an alternately charming and unsettling tale of mystery. Dec 28, 2022 Full Review Caitlyn Downs Sarah Adina Smith’s assured but sensitive direction creates a film that veers from suffocating to joyful while weaving a far bigger story that transcends the family. Rated: 4.5/5 Sep 10, 2022 Full Review John Townsend Starburst There's nothing dramatic here, no realisation of hidden horrors, just a slow, tangible tension that is disquieting if not exactly frightening. Rated: 2/5 Jan 28, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
