‘Night Comes’ – Dafne Keen Starring in Horror Movie Being Directed by ‘Hostel’ Star

Jay Hernandez, known for his roles in films including Hostel and Suicide Squad, will make his feature directorial debut with the horror movie Night Comes, we’ve learned today.

Impossible Dream Entertainment and Canada-based production and financing outfit Big Picture Cinema Group are teaming to produce the new feature horror thriller, which will star Dafne Keen (Logan, His Dark Materials, Star Wars: The Acolyte) and Samantha Lorraine (You are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah, The Walking Dead).

Jay Hernandez also wrote the screenplay with Jason Bourque and Nancy Isaak.

Night Comes unfolds against the backdrop of a cataclysmic event that threatens to engulf humanity. Two sisters manage to escape the horror only find themselves thrust into a perilous struggle for survival, tasked with a mission that holds the fate of mankind in the balance.

The press release promises, “Night Comes promises to deliver a spine-chilling, edge-of-your-seat experience that will leave audiences breathless.”

Jay Hernandez said, “With Night Comes we have a chance to do two unique things simultaneously. We have a visually stunning exploration of genre, with edge of your seat action coupled with what I see to be a character study in a world where rules, gender roles and order no longer exist. And it’s a journey into how these two young women define sisterhood.”

Big Picture Cinema Group President and Co-Founder Jayce Barriero said, “We’re excited to bring something so sophisticated, elevated and commercial to the marketplace and proud of the diversity we’re showcasing in front of, and behind the camera. From the first minute we read it, we were captivated by the world Night Comes brings people into, and the potential of a film so relentless and action-packed for its genre. Jay has such an amazing vision for this movie and Dafne and Samantha are the perfect duo to bring this to life in memorable, eventized fashion.”

Principal photography will begin late summer in Vancouver.
