In this one we find ourselves in the near future, North America has been ravaged by war. Now ruled by the military , a mother searches for her daughter who has been taken by the state.
Today Signature Entertainment have sent us a tense new clip, in that clip there seems to be a stand off…

From the clip and the trailer, Alfonso Cuarón’s Children of Men certainly Goulet’s inspiration which is a bleak film. Goulet is a Saskatchewan-born Cree/Métis filmmaker and the has a social commentary on Canada’s indigenous peoples too. What is truly making these films even more terrifying is many of subjects covered in them have become true or we’re on the road of becoming true!
The film made it’s world premiere back at the start of 2021 at Berlin Film Festival via Toronto. It’s garnered some pretty solid reviews with 83% score at Rotten Tomatoes, need I say more?
Night Raiders will be released in the UK and Ireland on Digital Platforms from Monday 6th December.
