The Night Trailer

"Where were you, just now?" IFC Films has debuted a new official US trailer for an indie film titled The Night, made by Iranian filmmaker Kourosh Ahari. This originally premiered at the Santa Barbara Film Festival last year, and it later screened at the Fajr, Sitges, Cinequest, and Nightstream Film Festivals as well. This unsettling horror is about an Iranian couple living in the US that becomes trapped inside a hotel when insidious events force them to face the secrets that have come between them. It becomes a night that never ends… The Night stars Shahab Hosseini, Leah Oganyan, Niousha Jafarian, George Maguire, and Gia Mora. This still looks heavily inspired by The Shining in many ways, but re-invented as an intriguing immigrant horror film about Iranians and the demons haunting their relationship. This one is worth a look.

Here's the full-length US trailer (+ poster) for Kourosh Ahari's The Night, direct from YouTube:
