It’s been awhile since we last mentioned director Noel Tan’s Darkest Night, but it’s finally getting a US release this July, and we have a new trailer and the film’s official artwork to share.
Darkest Night is a unique horror film that places American actor DJ Perry smack dab in the middle of a mostly all Filipino cast/crew. The story is about a Christmas gathering that goes horribly wrong. “I see it like Michael Douglas in Black Rain featuring Japan [location/talent]. Western audiences may embrace a new exotic film experience given a relatable Western lead.” – DJ Perry
Perry’s co-stars include Anne Gauthier, Issa Litton, and Nic Campos. The film is written and produced by Russ Williams. For more info visit the official Darkest Night website, and “like” Darkest Night on Facebook.
Look for it on DVD July 16th from Brain Damage Films.
On December 25, 2003, an upscale Filipino family gathers at a remote place in the Sagada Mountains for a Christmas Day reunion dinner. It’s a happy occasion where the main character, Susan, announces her marriage engagement to her boyfriend, Ken, whom she brought with her.
Suddenly the group is cut off from civilization and plunged into darkness by forces that defy natural laws and shut down all types of modern technology. One by one, the family members die or disappear in weird and horrific ways. The few who are left, including Susan, struggle for survival and against family conflicts and demonic forces to find out what’s “out there” and what is happening.
Finally, Susan and the few left alive must understand the cult writings in an old book to prevail against demonic forces that threaten to consume them all. They have to understand and overcome a dark, pagan religion and the need for exorcism, as well as family secrets, in order to survive. The alternative is life in a hellish “heaven” more terrifying than death.
