Into The Night [Collector's Edition]
"A high sense of fun … Pfeiffer takes the sort of glamorous yet preposterous part that generally defeats even the best actress and somehow contrives to make it credible every inch of the way." – Time Out
From John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), comes the perilous – and hilarious – tale of Ed Okin (Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park), an insomniac who discovers that his wife has been having an affair.
Unhappily married, unsatisfyingly employed and unsurprisingly depressed, aerospace engineer and insomniac Ed Okin needs to get away. But getting away proves to be no easy feat when Ed drives to the airport and a gorgeous smuggler, Diana (Michelle Pfeiffer), leaps his car, pursued by four killers! Chased across the landscape of a "truly mythical" (Time Out) Los Angeles, Ed and Diana encounter an endless array of intriguing nocturnal characters (played by a bevy of famous directors) and a charming English hitman (David Bowie). But will they escape their relentless pursuers? The only way to find out is by diving Into The Night!
Why We Love It
“Into the Night is a little known but entertaining 1980s comedy/thriller featuring great performances by Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeiffer. Shout! Factory’s Blu-ray release features an excellent, newly-restored transfer as well as some brand new retrospective interviews with the director and star of the film. It’s always great to discover a fun new old film that you never knew existed. This release is definitely worth checking out.” – Kyle Nolan, No(R)eruns.net
“I'm kind of sad that this insomnia-fueled thriller got by me for so long, on the other I am happy that my first viewing was this gorgeous Blu-ray from Shout Select. If you're a John Landis fan like myself who missed out on this one for so long you need to seek it out, this is a great edition with wonderful A/V presentation and some excellent extras.” – Ken Kastenhuber, McBastard’s Mausoleum
