DEVIL’S NIGHT (2017) Overview

 

‘You make your own Hell.’

Devil’s Night is a 2017 American supernatural horror feature film directed by Todd Bishop (Zombie Apocalypse [short]) from a screenplay by producer Derek Rethwisch. The Harm’s Way Production stars Adam Forrest, Elizabeth Peterson and Alex Ho.

Plot:

Daniel, a charismatic teen from a broken home, wants nothing more than to get out of the trailer park. After scraping together just enough money to buy a video camera, he begins making YouTube videos in the hope that his antics will lead him to a better life. Unfortunately, when his videos fail to catch on and all his friends leave for college, Daniel is left all alone.

Undeterred, he discovers an old documentary about a serial killer who brutally murdered seven people in a satanic sacrifice not too far from his hometown. Thinking this might be his last chance for success, he decides to film a video in the killer’s house, only to summon an evil worse than anything he could have possibly imagined…

Background:

On the eve of the film’s release, writer/producer Derek Rethwisch commented:

“When we were writing Devil’s Night, our goal was to create a suspenseful, character-driven horror that would not only give audiences a few good scares but would be relevant to them today. We were all fans of horror growing up and really aspired to make a movie in the vein of Halloween or Friday the 13th, and Devil’s Night (October 30th) seemed like a natural fit. We hope that Devil’s Night is both a homage to those iconic movies but also unique in its portrayal of modern life.”
