MIDNIGHT is definitely one of Koontz's novels that contains a lot of cliffhanger sequences and gross-out moments for the squeamish to ever take. I loved the charm of Chrissie Foster's bookish, intelligent and articulate beyond her years character. Fact is I think the young Dakota Fanning is whom I picture if this was produced into a movie...
I have heard a lot of people say that this movie offers nothing new about love. A friend has even told me that the utterances are nothing but the cheesiest, sappiest clichés that will only leave you puking right there in your seats.
Indeed, the movie offers nothing new, at least in love, save that it is about two cowboys engaged in a homosexual closet love affair. If anything, its ordinariness leaves us with the most subversive shout.
