Here’s the spin: “Soon after violent masked drifters dressed as wolves arrive in a small rural town, a local young couple goes missing and their bodies are discovered near a ranch run by brother and sister, Tommy and June. Her ex-boyfriend and local deputy sheriff Luke start suspecting Tommy of murder, leaving the siblings ostracized and disenchanted with the community. The next day Tommy catches the killers committing another murder nearby and moves in closer to investigate but he is spotted by one of the drifters and chased across the ranch running for his life. Isolated, the siblings as well as June’s best friend and her husband find themselves being hunted and terrorized by the nomadic killers setting the scene for a startling twist and a gruesome outcome that will change the town forever.” And here is the trailer.
THE DEAD OF NIGHT is the creation of writer/director Robert Dean. I tend to favor writer-directors, being one myself. They bring their creations to life whole cloth, from gestation to birth, instead of a director taking a script written by someone else and then transforming it into “their” vision; in the case of a writer-director, the product was theirs from the very first.
THE DEAD OF NIGHT will be available for streaming starting on March 9th.
