What The Critics Say (Metascore 50)

  • It will undoubtedly seem tame to staunch “True Blood” fans. But a few winks of humor and some good scares make Midnight, Texas more than you’d expect from a summer series on broadcast TV. — Gail Pennington, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
  • It’s too loud and dumb to be really called good, but any fan of vampires, were-tigers or gaseously bloated corpses is going to have a fine time with it. — Glenn Garvin,
  • It’s the tame version of something you grew tired of on HBO years ago. And that’s putting it politely. There’s no energy here–sexual, supernatural, mystery. It’s just remarkably flat despite a talented cast doing everything in their power to make it interesting. — Brian Tallerico,
