To celebrate the release of the award-winning Iranian horror film The Night, which HorrorFuel’s Joseph Perry calls “a gripping chiller” in his review, we’ve got two brand new clips to share with you.
Directed and co-written by Kourosh Ahari, the film follows an Iranian couple, Babak and Neda, and their one-year-old daughter, Shabnam. Returning home from a friend’s gathering, Babak drives drunkenly, too stubborn to let Neda drive with a suspended license. When Babak’s driving threatens the safety of the family, Neda insists they stay the night at a hotel. Once they check-in, Babak and Neda find themselves imprisoned, forced to face the secrets they’ve kept from each other. And though the clock moves forward, “the night” never ends.
The Night out now on Digital and VOD, from IFC Midnight.
