‘Midnight in the Switchgrass’ Review: Megan Fox and Lukas Haas in a Serial-Killer Film That’s Old-School Grindhouse

Review: MIDNIGHT IN THE SWITCHGRASS Starring Megan Fox, Emile Hirsch, Lukas Haas, and Bruce Willis

I got the opportunity to watch the film Midnight in the Switchgrass ahead of its release this week. The film has a great cast that is led by Megan Fox, Emile Hirsch, and Lukas Haas, as well as Bruce Willis. Fox plays an FBI agent who has been sent to Florida to investigate a string of murders alongside her partner, played by Willis.

We do see him appear again, but his role is really just peripheral.
