With the slow process of coming hopefully out of Lockdown starting we all need a break. If your looking for a hotel break, you might want to think twice spending that time at The Normandie Hotel. In Kourosh Ahari’s The Night a young family checks in for the night the turns into an never ending terror but can they ever leave?
Earlier this year we brought you the U.S Trailer teasing an unnerving Kubrickian psychological horror. Today Vertigo Releasing have unveiled the film’s UK Trailer ahead of it’s release next month.
Starring Shahab Hosseini and Niousha Noor an Iranian couple Babak & Neda returning home from a friend with their infant daughter and find themselves having to spend the night in a hotel. A long dark night in a mysterious hotel, where a young couple are tormented by ghosts of the past.
This is the first ever Iranian film to be produced in the USA, and we’re excited to see this directorial feature!
After a night out with friends, an exhausted married couple, Babak (Shahab Hosseini), Neda (Niousha Noor) and their baby take shelter in the grand, but eerie Hotel Normandie. Throughout a seemingly endless night, mysterious disturbances ruin their night’s rest as Babak and Neda soon realize they’re locked-in with a malevolent force that hungers for the dark secrets they’ve kept from one another.
With The Night, director Kourosh Ahari made history for being the first U.S.-produced film to receive a license for theatrical release in Iran since the revolution. The psychological thriller follows in the footsteps of The Shining, luring viewers into a hotel that is both ominous and inviting, where the ghosts of the past still linger around each corner. The terrors that linger in the corridors are more real and terrifying than any movie monster in a mask. The Night will make you never want to spend a night away from home again.
The film also stars George Maguire, Armin Amiri, and Michael Graham.
The Night will be released in the UK and Ireland on all Digital Platforms from 2nd April.
