Movie musicals and cult movies were the most common form of midnight movie.

It's almost 12, the magic hour for the enduring pleasures of the midnight movie tradition, and the live cast of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" is missing its leader and chief re-animator.
What they share with the dozens of "Rocky Horror" fans is a love of midnight movies and all they represent: a sense of community, independence from mainstream Hollywood, and the opportunity to wear lacy panties in public regardless of race, gender or sexual preference.
Midnight movies have long been a staple of small, individually-owned theaters, where it's common to find cult, foreign and independent films.

 Midnight Run Movie -The 80s Rewind «
Midnight Run tells the story of Jack Walsh, former Chicago policeman-turned-bounty hunter, on the trail of a bail-jumping accountant, Jonathan Mardukas (Grodin), who embezzles $15 million and donates it all to charity after discovering the money's mob connections.
Midnight Run perfectly balances humor, sensitivity and action into a hilarious, action-packed 'buddy' movie of a totally original kind.
Midnight Run is also very much an ensemble piece with terrific performances from bail bonds duo Jack Kehoe ("I'll go get the doughnuts") and Joe Pantoliano "Jack I love ya!"), and fellow road warrior John Ashton, the likeable rogue who suffers violent humiliations in his quest for the $$$.

 deseretnews.com - Movie review: Midnight Cowboy | Deseret Morning News Web edition
"Midnight Cowboy" has never held the same fascination for me, though most national critics consider it one of the best films ever made.
But watching it again reminded me that their relationship is only a small part of the film, and most of the other vignettes, about displaced cowboy Joe's experiences in seedy Manhattan, are simply not as compelling.
"Midnight Cowboy," which won Oscars as best picture and for its direction (John Schlesinger) and screenplay (Waldo Salt), is rated R for violence, sex, nudity, profanity, vulgarity and drugs.

 Midnight Run - Movie Commentary by Scott Ventura (FeedMyEgo.com)
Midnight Run is a basic road movie/buddy movie with a few twists on how these guys got together and the type of people they are.
The movie is presented in widescreen with no subtitles and only two-channel audio.
On each screen, the scenes are arrayed horizontally with a lower row for buttons to move to the next and previous screens and to start the movie.

Before we know it, the movie is all about Kelso and his off-the-wall experiences as he tries to write a book about the killing.
As a result, Kelso inexplicably ends up in the middle of strange midnight voodoo visits to the cemetery and exclusive client-attorney conferences between Williams and his lawyer (Jack Thompson), a University of Georgia fanatic responsible for the school’s bulldog mascot.
Midnight is actually the first instance in which the time he spends rounding out his characters has been more entertaining than the main plotline.

 Potomac News Online | Midnight movie mania alive on Encore
The sex, violence and campy rock 'n' roll that put the genre on the map 35 years ago are now such a part of mainstream films that midnight movies, for the most part, have become just another showtime and not a celebration of the counterculture.
But back in the day, midnight movies gave John Waters a career, made talking back to the screen fashionable and helped popularize flesh-eating ghouls and reggae music.
Samuels and his midnight moviemakers, some of whom have gone on to become successful filmmakers and Broadway directors (that would be Waters), also explain why the midnight movie has disappeared.

While their popularity has fluctuated over the years, midnight movies remain an important part of the indie cinema movement, and a platform for alternative moviemakers to let their voices be heard.
As the first midnight movie, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s spaghetti western with a sideshow twist is just the sort of surrealistic tale that ’70s audiences could never make total sense of—but had fun trying.
Like so many great midnight movies, part of the film’s appeal is its enormous cast of immensely talented character actors (like Philip Seymour Hoffman as Brandt, Lebowski’s personal assistant with a perpetual stick up his ass and Steve Buscemi as bowling buddy Donny, who never seems to be part of the conversation).

 Midnight Eye review: Eureka (2000, director: Shinji AOYAMA)
Simply put, Eureka is a film not so much about dealing with trauma and the aftermath of tragedy, but rather about the re-discovery of life.
That the film itself combines many genres (drama, slice-of-life comedy, road movie and thriller) is very appropriate for a piece whose central theme is the multi-faceted nature of life.
Add to this the beautiful visuals (the tinted fl and white images are gorgeous in themselves but are greatly enhanced by wonderful composition and editing) and great performances by the entire cast, and you get a film that even at three and a half hours plus drags for not a minute.

 Midnight Cowboy Movie Review at Hollywood Video
The late 1960s and early '70s are regarded as a golden era in American moviemaking, marking the period between the time the Hays Code disappeared and the blockbuster mentality took over in Hollywood.
The rating was changed to R in 1971 without director John Schlesinger excising so much as a single frame of his original vision—there's nothing in the movie that ever warranted that scarlet X. There's almost no profanity, little violence, and relatively little nudity.
Apparently, this disc is about two years past due (the extras refer to the 35th anniversary of the film), but whatever the reason for the delay, it was well worth the wait.

Sure, the articles could be a little stilted and the ads for 'massage girls' in the back didn't do much for it's overall journalistic credibility, but it had listings for every movie theater in town and it was free, two things which appealed mightily to Wufei in his current status as starving student.
Trowa had leaned over to whisper something in his ear no less than four times over the course of the movie, and between the warmth of Trowa's breath against his skin and the brush of Trowa's shoulder against his own, Wufei didn't have the foggiest idea what had been said.

 Toronto International Film Festival 00 - Midnight Madness
It was during the witching hours at the Bloor repertory cinema that I discovered Peter Jackson, Michel Soavi, adult anime, and met Dario Argento for the first of many times.
For whatever reason, Midnight Madness 2000 was a lacklustre showcase, with programmer Colin Geddes content to merely raid the Asian Film Market for titles.
Granted, some of the most exciting fantasy and action movies are coming out of the Pacific Rim, but I don't buy Geddes' excuse that the American genre scene was marred by nothing more than, quote, "Blair Witch" ripoffs, hence the proliferation of Eastern crime fare.
