Midnight Movie Review 2021 FUll Story Explained
Thriller film from 2021, titled Midnight. Spoilers ahead! Watch out and take care. It’s late at night when a young woman finally leaves her workplace after doing extra hours. A group of guys take the taxi she saw first, so now she’s stuck walking home. As she takes the dark road, she’s approached by a van, and its driver, Do-shik, offers to take her home.
The woman refuses, not wanting to get in a car with a stranger, but she hears some weird noises after walking a bit more. She turns around to find the van door open and the sound of someone crying and asking for help coming from it. When she comes closer and takes a peek, however, she finds a bunch of clothes and the body of a dead man, because the one making the noises had been Do-shik, who now grabs her and drags her inside to kill her before she can escape.
Moments later, after having called 911 and changed into clean clothes, Do-shik receives two police officers while pretending to be incredibly distressed. He points where he left the bodies and acts to find them there by accident, saying he saw a group of workers stab the woman. Some days later, Kim Kyung-mi is working at her usual desk in customer service.
She’s a deaf young woman, so she takes the calls from other deaf and mute customers by talking to them using sign language through video calls. Just like regular customer service, though, rude customers call her names and give her the finger. After work, she goes to a company dinner even if she can’t be part of the conversation.

All the men at the table take advantage of her deafness to talk rudely and inappropriately about her, but they don’t know she can read lips, so in return, she signs back a bunch of insults that they think are compliments. Afterwards, she goes to pick up her deaf mother from her work at a tailor’s shop, saving her from almost getting run over by a bike thanks to the sound sensor on her car.
Her mother is pleased because she’s been paid well this month, and now the two of them can have that vacation at the beach they wanted. Choi Seo-Jung is getting ready to go out in another part of the city. Still, her brother, security guard Jong-tak, has been very over-protective since their parents’ death, so he argues with her over what clothes she’s wearing and what time she’s allowed to come home.
She promises to be good, but later, she ignores her brother’s texts while she’s on her date and doesn’t go home as early as she promised. Since she doesn’t pick up her phone either, Jong-tak decides to go out and look for her. It’s late at night when Do-shik goes out to find another victim.
He sees Kyung-mi leave her mother near an alarm post while she searches for a spot to park and chooses to go after her, but at that moment, Seo-Jung appears walking down the same street, so Do-shik decides she shall do instead. He runs and quickly jumps on her, going unnoticed because Kyung-mi’s mother walks the other way and can’t hear anything.

Kyung-mi makes it to her car and calls her mom to tell her to wait for her by the alarm, but right after she hangs up, Do-shik appears on the back seat with a knife in his hand. He makes her drive, but instead of taking him out of the building, she drives toward the wall, stopping right before they crash and using the opportunity to escape. Another running chase begins, and Kyung-mi manages to make it to his mom before Do-shik can catch her.
But because Kyung-mi presses the alarm button, Do-shik can’t come closer anymore, so he returns to his van while the women wait for the police. After hiding Seo-Jung’s body in it, he changes clothes and hairstyle to look like a regular business person, then approaches the woman with a carefree expression. Kyung-mi doesn’t recognize him because the killer wears a mask and a hat, so when this man says he’s looking for his sister, Kyung-mi believes him.
She’s about to take him to the dark alley when the police arrive, but the officer finds the path empty. Kyung-mi requests to see the security cameras, but the guard at the parking lot shows them they’ve been turned off by kids that hang there to smoke. The three of them are taken to the station to make a formal report.
In the elevator, Do-shik keeps looking at the weapons in his bag before glancing at the women, noticed by Kyung-mi’s mother, who thinks he doesn’t look unfortunate anymore. To keep up his cover, he retrieves a black phone from his bag and tells them he’s relieved to have received a text from his sister, which means the body wasn’t hers.

Moments later, Kyung-mi has finished giving her statement, but the officer can’t do much without a body or a physical description of the killer. Do-shik wants to help with that, but the cop scolds him for interrupting other people’s statements, and the hobo that has been sleeping on a nearby couch takes the chance to insult him for it too.
Seeing this as an opportunity, Do-shik goes to the water cooler, and while picking a cup, he insults the hobo in a low tone so the officer can’t hear them. This enrages the man, who immediately jumps on Do-shik to hit him, and during the struggle, Do-shik drops a white phone on the floor that the mother picks up.
The cop pulls the hobo away and takes him to another room, so Do-shik takes his phone back and goes to see Kyung-mi’s statement as an excuse to check her personal information. While he reads, the mother signs to Kyung-mi that it is suspicious for the man to have two different cellphones, and when he notices them talking to each other, he demands to know what it is about.
Kyung-mi only writes "nothing" for him, Do-shik approaches the mother and starts going through the weapons in his bag, thinking of what to do next. At that moment, a cop appears with Jong-tak, who reports his missing sister. The officer tells him to show the picture to the other three since the description matches Kyung-mi’s statement: Do-shik pretends he hasn’t seen her before. Still, Kyung-mi immediately recognizes her and gives him her statement to read.
While she tries to give him more details, the cop leaves the room to take care of the hobo that attempted to re-enter the place, so Do-shik takes that chance to tell the mother not to move, or he’ll kill Kyung-mi. Then he shows her what is inside his bag as he takes a knife and moves towards her daughter, but the mother manages to make a loud noise that alerts the others.
Jong-tak turns around just in time and stops the knife, so the two men begin fighting as the women go outside and call the cops over. Do-shik admits having hurt Seo-Jung, which enrages Jong-tak. He starts beating up Do-shik furiously and even grabs the knife to put it on his neck, demanding to know the location of his sister, but they are interrupted by the cops.
Do-shik pretends to be a victim, and because of the compromising position, the officers believe him, so they arrest Jong-tak instead. Do-shik gets to walk free, and the women stay with Jong-tak while the cops check the security cameras and see they are telling the truth. While Jong-tak goes back to the streets to search for his sister, the police take the women to their apartment, which has many lights that blink if they detect movement.
While mother and daughter are having some tea, the lights warn them of someone at the door, which worries them because it’s late, but it turns out it’s just the mother’s coworker who’s come to pick up some bags. The two older adults leave together, leaving Kyung-mi alone in the apartment, unaware that Do-shik has now arrived and broken the sensor outside the door so the light won’t give out his location.
His steps inside are detected, though, so when Kyung-mi leaves her room to investigate, Do-shik makes an alarm clock ring to make her think that’s what triggered the lights. Afterwards, once she is back in her room, he finishes turning off all the other sensors in the house while she texts Jong-tak, who had given her his card, if she needed anything.
Do-shik grabs his axe and gets ready to strike, but at that moment, Kyung-mi notices a toy on the dresser is activated, yet the lights don’t react to it, so she turns around just in time to dodge Do-shik’s attack. She runs to another room and puts a dresser in front of the door before sending a text to Jong-tak to tell him the murderer is here.
Then she texts her mom to tell her not to come back, but as the door stops shaking, she gets a text saying she’s already there and found the door open. Thinking her mother is in danger, Kyung-mi begins moving the dresser back, but as more texts from her mom asking for help arrive, she realizes they have perfect spelling when her mother usually doesn’t type so well.
She then realizes Do-shik has her phone, and she stops moving the dresser just in time for him to appear at the door gap.
He tries to grab her hand, but Kyung-mi manages to pull it back and lock the door on his face. This doesn’t stop him for long. However, Do-shik begins destroying the door with his axe to make his way inside.

With Jong-tak frozen in place, Do-shik sends a text to his phone with Seo-Jung’s location and makes him choose between the two girls.

Obviously, Do-shik lied, and the place is empty, and Jong-tak only comes across the mother when she comes back. Meanwhile, Kyung-mi tries to use a chair from the trash to defend herself, but Do-shik takes it from her and uses it to pin her to the ground.
While he uses the phone to talk to Jong-tak and call him the wrong person for having left her there, Kyung-mi grabs some dirt and throws it at Do-shik’s face to use the distraction to push him off her and start running again.
