Have you ever thought of being an investigator of a murder? How would you go about solving the case? Are you sure you will be able to solve the case? Taking the same questions forward, “Midnight in the Switchgrass” is based on the investigation.
But you know what? The film is based on a true story. The dramatisation was set in Florida and is based on the actual story of Texas’ most deadly serial murderer. Karl Helter of the FBI and his associate Rebecca Lombardi of the FBI are on the verge of breaking a sex-trafficking network.
About the Midnight in the Switchgrass
The film opens with news of a missing girl, followed by a scene in which a body in fishnet stockings is discovered in the Florida switchgrass (of course). It turns out that there has been a slew of unsolved killings in the Pensacola region, all of which have involved young women (most of the prostitutes).
While Florida State Officer Byron Crawford, played by Emile Hirsch with subtle sharpness, has been trying to connect the crimes, his superiors-now want him off the investigation. Why? There’s no justification for it other than it’s a genre cliché.
When they discover their research has led them into the trail of a horrific serial murderer, they link up with Byron Crawford, a Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent who has been working on the case for years.
It’s the kind of film where Megan Fox, playing an FBI agent, is kidnapped by the killer and cuffed with a chain around her neck so he can strangle her, beat her, and nuzzle her at one point.
In his redneck pervert drawl, he exclaims, “You definitely are something special,” and the filmmakers, in their own way, agree. Nonetheless, “Midnight in the Switchgrass,” in its born-for-VOD way, isn’t unwatchable.
Two additional crime fighters are present: a pair of federal agents, portrayed by Fox and Bruce Willis, who is working on a sting operation to apprehend the same assailant. Willis has featured in many low-budget films directed by this film’s director, Randall Emmett, over the previous several years. He has occasionally brought his A-game to those payday roles, but not this time.
