THE MOST UNUSUAL HORROR FILM OUT BY HALLOWEEN!

"Between Kafka, David Lynch and Tintin in the Congo"

BLACK NIGHT
(October 29, 2007) - Olivier Smolders, 2004, 90 Min


Oscar, a conservator at the Natural Sciences Museum, passes the days exercising his passion for studying insects; if only there still were days.

As long as people can remember, the sun only releases a few pathetic rays for fifteen seconds before noon. The rest of the time, the world is plunged into a night without end, a permanent eclipse.

Coming home after work, Oscar finds an African woman in his bed. Suffering from a mysterious and incurable disease, she seems to have come to his place to die. Trapped between desire and repulsion, Oscar gradually abandons his life to terrifying phantoms.

The long awaited feature length debut film of talented short filmmaker Olivier Smolders (see also Spiritual Exercises DVD). BLACK NIGHT is mysterious, ghostly, technically impeccable, and continuously bathed in a magical, surreal light.

52 Minutes of Bonus Features:
Deleted Scenes
Behind The Scenes
Interview with the Director

Short on “Spiritual Exercises’
