Psychological thriller THE NIGHT - coming to Digital April

You’ll be praying for check out time this April, as Vertigo Releasing announces the arrival of the acclaimed hotel-set chiller THE NIGHT.


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.

Described by ROGEREBERT.COM as a “remarkable evocation of Kubrickian horror”, THE NIGHT is an outstanding debut feature from Iranian American writer/director Kourosh Ahari, featuring fantastic lead performances from Shahab Hosseini (Cannes and Berlin Film Festival winner for The Salesman and A Separation), and Niousha Noor (Here and Now), as a beleaguered couple haunted by the past. 

Set over a long dark night of the soul, the film is superbly mounted, with a nerve-jangling soundtrack and a slow-building sense of dread - managing to combine a sensitive look at the immigrant experience in the US with some genuinely shattering horror moments.

THE NIGHT will be released on Digital Platforms on the 2ND APRIL
