Between the Darkness is a 2019 American indie horror feature film about a teenage girl who is convinced that a monster is haunting the nearby woods. Also known as Come, Said the Night

Written and directed by Andres Rovira, the Miller/Datri Pictures production stars Danielle Harris, Lew Temple, Tate Birchmore, Daniela Leon and Nicole Moorea Sherman.

Thirteen-year-old Sprout Grady grows convinced that a monster is haunting the nearby woods. Embarking on a mission to vanquish it, she uncovers horrifying secrets that rock the core of everything she thought she knew…

“I liked Come, Said the Night. However, I have to say; it started off slow but then it started picking up I would say around midway through the movie through the end. One of the leads in the movie, Nicole Moorea Sherman (Sprout Grady) did an outstanding job portraying her role.” Fansided

“Slow to build and somewhat predictable overall, Come, Said the Night is an excellent psychological horror film […] If you enjoy a dark and subtle horror with a touch of the macabre, this is one you should enjoy.” Late to the Game review

“While Lew Temple does an acceptable job as the troubled father to two children, this is Nicole Moorea Sherman’s film. Her moments of innocent fear, that slowly ease through the film into empowerment are a subtle arc that is a joy to observe.” Film Threat

“This slow-building but very satisfying arthouse approach to horror comes wrapped in mystique — drawing you in with actual character development and emotion instead of gore and nudity.  It was also incredibly nice to NOT see all of the far too common tropes of the genre being paraded out in place of real creativity and story.” Michael Jones, Morbidly Beautiful

The movie premiered on 9 March 2019 at the Cinequest Film Festival.
