MIDNIGHT SPECIAL is a sci-fi thriller in which a boy with special powers and his father go on the run, pursued by both the FBI and members of a religious cult.

Violence

During a shoot-out one man is shot in the stomach and another in the shoulder. Blood is seen on clothing but there is no emphasis on injuries. In another scene a man is struck across the head with a brass lamp.

Threat

Moments of moderate threat include car crash scenes and a sequence in which a mysterious force causes a house to shake violently.

Other issues include infrequent mild bad language, including uses of 'asshole' and 'shit'.
