Los Angeles, CA – February 26, 2019 – The slow burn psychological thriller, ‘COME, SAID THE NIGHT’, will receive its world premiere on Saturday, March 9th with additional showings on March 11th and March 13th at this year’s Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose and Redwood City, CA, learned Horror Society exclusively.
From Writer-Director Andres Rovira (No Stranger Pilgrims, The Projectionist), COME, SAID THE NIGHT is billed as a coming-of-age thriller/horror story with a young female lead grappling with sexuality and repression, accompanied by a terrifying monster that could end her childhood forever.
“COME, SAID THE NIGHT is a faith based folk horror that sets itself apart from other films in its genre,” wrote The Farsighted.
Heavily influenced by folk and religious horror, COME, SAID THE NIGHT follows 13-year-old Sprout Grady (Nicole Moorea Sherman) and her family to their secluded “Sanctuary” in the woods, on the anniversary of her sister Magda’s (Daniela Leon) death. Her father Roy (Lew Temple) has deep-seated beliefs in ancient Greek mythology, believing in the power of mythological gods, choosing to home school his children, Sprout and Percy (Tate Birchmore), protecting them from “The Otherness” – the horrors he believes reside within modern humanity. Sprout begins to suffer from sleep paralysis, haunted by a lurking Gorgon monster. But when outsiders, a widowed park ranger – Stella Woodhouse (Danielle Harris), and her handsome son Max (Max Page) – enter the Gradys’ lives, chaos ensues and brings a strange and terrifying turn of events that will uncover dark family secrets and rock the core of everything Sprout thought she knew.
“Nicole Moorea Sherman as Sprout Grady is the true standout here. She delivers a truly great breakout performance from a young actor many of us had never seen before,” continued The Farsighted.
COME, SAID THE NIGHT will have its world premiere at Cinequest on Screen 17 of the Century 20 Redwood City Theaters on Saturday, March 9th at 4:15pm. The film will also show on Monday, March 11th and Wednesday, March 13th. Tickets and more information are available here.
