Nicholas Vince’s Terrifying Short The Night Whispered Released on Reelhouse



If you’re in need of some spooky viewing material, you can’t go wrong with the newly released short film The Night Whispered.

Written and directed by Nicholas Vince, who starred as the Chatterer Cenobite in the first two Hellraiser movies, The Night Whispered finds a group of friends having to walk home at night after they miss the last train. They soon meet a mysterious stranger (played by Vince), and things take a strange turn. Holly Boyden, Laura Hopwood, Dawson James, and Maddy Vince also star.

I had the pleasure of attending one of Mr. Vince’s talks, which was accompanied by a screening of The Night Whispered, and I can tell you that it’s one of the creepiest shorts I’ve seen in quite some time. So if you fancy being scared rigid, you can purchase a digital copy of the film on Reelhouse.

If you missed it earlier, you can also read my in-depth interview with the wonderful Nicholas Vince here.

From the Press Release:
Nicholas Vince, best known for playing The Chatterer in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, releases his first short film as writer and director, The Night Whispered, online at Reelhouse on Halloween.

The film tells of three friends who miss the last tram home and decide to take a shortcut through a dark country park. Uninvited, a sinister man (played by Vince) and his dog join them. In the park; one hears a whisper, turns and vanishes. The others search, until they too hear whispers.

Nicholas said, “We filmed on a night when the temperature dropped to zero degrees Celsius, so our breath frosted. Luckily, that helps sell why the friends would abandon the brightly lit streets to take a short cut home. The film is a ‘chilling ghost story.”

The film has screened at festivals in the USA, France and UK with a screening before the smash hit ‘Get Out’.

You can rent (USD $1.49), buy (USD $2.49) or buy with extras (USD $2.99) which includes the making of documentary Bloody Hell It’s Cold!, the shooting script, storyboard, BTS photos, and other extras.

Purchase or rent the film at:

As well as playing the Chatterer in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II, Nicholas Vince played Kinski in Barker’s Nightbreed. He also stars in the feature films Hollower (dir. MJ Dixon) and Borley Rectory (dir. Ashley Thorpe). Recent short films as actor include Dark Ditties Presents ‘The Offer’ (dir. Chris Griffiths and Gary Smart) and Retribution (dir. Paddy Murphy) – which is also available on Reelhouse.

Synapse’s Suspiria 4K Restoration Gets a Release Date



Earlier this year, we wrote about Synapse Films’ Suspiria 4K restoration and how it was available for pre-order. The weird catch was that there was no release date confirmed and that pre-orders would go out sometime in December 2017. Today that changes as we can confirm that the 3-disc special edition Blu-ray collection will come out December 19th, just in time for Christmas but a little late for Hanukkah. Any chance we can have one extra night this year?

Restored over three years, Synapse has been working tirelessly to create the ultimate version of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic supernatural horror film, which has since gone on to become one of the most recognized and lauded titles in the genre. This cut has been overseen and approved by Luciano Tovoli, the Director of Photography on the film.
