It’s a ‘Darkest Night’ For Filipino Horror

A new trailer for Noel Tan’s Filipino Darkest Night, which stars DJ Perry, Anne Gauthier and French Filipina, has been added above. It also features Issa Litton, Nic Campos, Jill Palencia, Marife Necesito, Zeny Sevilla, Kevin Vitug and Jonas Gruet.

‘Darkest Night’ unfolds in a “found video and documentary” style. Its story plops American actor DJ Perry right in the middle of the action to allow western audiences to experience a “holiday” trip away from home. Eastern audiences will identify with the many vivid Asian characters, as well as the local and family setting. Perry’s character in the film, Ken Tyler, is introduced to the traditional-minded family of his Filipino fiancé, Susan Reyes (played by Anne Gauthier), during a Christmas Day family reunion. What follows is a dark, horrific trip not to be missed, as demonic forces slowly come into play.

Darkest Night combines Western demons with Eastern spiritual traditions to come up with an original recipe for suspense and terror.
