Theatrical Trailer for the Filipino Found Footage Flick Darkest Night

No Comments

Before you start rolling your eyes and motivating your mouse towards the BACK button of your browser, let me say that I too was skeptical about the upcoming Filipino horror outing “Darkest Night”. However, the image you see above completely changed my mind. Regardless of how you may feel about the plethora of “found footage” currently on the market, you have to admit that the image positioned above is seriously demented. I’m really not even sure what in the hell I’m looking at. Here’s hoping the final product is a just as creepy.

An official synopsis is in your future:

Darkest Night unfolds in a “found video and documentary” style. Its story plops American Perry right in the middle of the action to allow western audiences to experience a “holiday” trip away from home. Eastern audiences will identify with the many vivid Asian characters, as well as the local and family setting. Perry’s character in the film, Ken Tyler, is introduced to the traditional-minded family of his Filipino fiancé, Susan Reyes, played by Ms. Gauthier, during a Christmas Day family reunion. What follows is a dark, horrific trip not to be missed, as demonic forces slowly come into play. Darkest Night combines western demons with eastern spiritual traditions to come up with an original recipe for suspense and terror.

Although the movie was produced and lensed in the Philippines, Noel Tan’s “Darkest Night” will have its premiere here in the US. I’m sure as hell not going to complain about it. Look for the film to open later this year. While you’re waiting, take a look at the trailer below.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)
