The Night Eats The World

"You probably thought you'd drop dead peacefully in your sleep… And then, this happens?" More zombies! An official UK trailer has debuted for a new French zombie film titled The Night Eats The World, from first-time director Dominique Rocher. The plot involves a man who ends up at a party at his ex-girlfriend's place, only to wake up and discover he's alone and the rest of the people in Paris have turned into zombies. He has somehow survived unharmed overnight, and now must figure out how to survive and what to do next. Not the most original zombie plot, but this film does look pretty cool. Anders Danielsen Lie stars, along with Golshifteh Farahani, Denis Lavant, Sigrid Bouaziz, and David Kammenos. This doesn't look as scary as it does wild and entertaining, which makes me want to watch it more. Always more zombies.

Here's the UK trailer (+ French poster) for Dominique Rocher's The Night Eats The World, on YouTube:

Sam (Anders Danielsen Lie), a thirty-something Parisian, goes to look for business at his ex-girlfriend's flat. He finds himself in a very eventful party where he decides to stay. The next morning, he wakes up alone in a deserted apartment. Sam then realizes that the city’s inhabitants have turned into blood-thirsty creatures. Organizing himself as he can to ensure his survival and escape the zombies, Sam discovers that he is not the only survivor. Will he uncover the mystery behind the epidemic and will he survive? The Night Eats The World, originally La nuit a dévoré le monde in French, is directed by French filmmaker Dominique Rocher, making his feature directorial debut after a few shorts previously. The screenplay is written by Jérémie Guez, Guillaume Lemans, and Dominique Rocher; adapted from Pit Agarmen's novel. This premiered at European film festivals earlier this year, and it played at the Tribeca Film Festival. No official US release date is set yet, only UK so far. Stay tuned for updates. First impression? Who's curious?

Can we please, please be done with zombies? I was done to death 10 years ago.

Why? It's a way of telling the story as any other. Maybe some refreshment of it, but no need to end it. And besides, it's a nice and pretty accurate allegory of today's world and people ...

Oh, I am ok with the zombie allegory, Bo. Yes, Romero has given life to this undead genre or akind of narrative. But that was just a start and a legitimate way to tell stories on where zombies become a vehicle for the disoriented and numb flocks of people in today's world, where so many different hordes take religions, politics, violence and economy for granted and just follow. Yes, that is good way to give a commentary on today's world. Of course, no need for anybody else to take that lead. It does need a new life and there's so many generic continuities or discontinuties in films and in every possible medium and genre which also makes me believe that there's also place for this one too. Yeah, we don't agree with this either, but I think that shouldn't bother any of us, right? Cheers and, as you might say, peace?

I understand that it doesn't work for a lot of people Bo, but it does work for others. I am one of them and I think there's space for improvement in that direction. For me, it's a still good vehicle for what I described, so there's no need to repeat that. In fact, undead part of the world population is a huge problem, and zombies do convey that. But anyway, let's move on with our different views on that, right? Cheers and peace ...

It looks more like a drama about the solitude in an alienated world. I might give it a try ...

It's 2018 and the zombie trend still goes on. How many times can you depict the same thing over and over again and still have people not getting tired of it?
