An international name you should know by now is Timo Tjahjanto, the man behind Macabre, the “Safe Haven” segment of V/H/S/2, and the Sundance selection, Killers. Next up is The Night Comes For Us, which had its World Premiere at the ongoing Fantastic Fest to rave reviews. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long for this violent actioneer as it’ll hit Netflix on October 19th.
Killers was produced by The Raid: Redemption director Gareth Evans, and the duo collaborated on the V/H/S/2 short “Safe Haven”, which is how The Raid 2‘s Julie Estelle, dubbed “Hammer Girl”, ended up cast in The Night Comes For Us. Evans, who saw his Apostle premiere at Fantastic Fest, produces alongside Maya Barack Evans of PT Merantau Films and XYZ Films’ Nate Bolotin, Aram Tertzakian, Nick Spicer and Todd Brown.
In the film, Joe Taslim plays a mobster who returns to his local crime family in Jakarta only to find himself trapped in a word of betrayal and chaos.
Tjahjanto also saw his Evil Dead-inspired May the Devil Take You premiere at Fantastic Fest and will also hit Netflix at a later date.
