"A KNOCKOUT DEBUT — so assured that it stands on its own as a filmmaking achievement apart from its historical significance, which is considerable." — Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com
After a night out with friends, an exhausted married couple, Babak (Shahab Hosseini) and Neda (Niousha Jafarian), and their baby take shelter in the grand, but eerie Hotel Normandie. Throughout a seemingly endless night, mysterious disturbances ruin their rest as Babak and Neda soon realize they're locked in with a malevolent force that hungers for the dark secrets they've kept from one another.
With The Night, director Kourosh Ahari made history for being the first U.S.-produced film to receive a license for theatrical release in Iran since the revolution. The psychological thriller follows in the footsteps of The Shining, luring viewers into a hotel that is both ominous and inviting, where the ghosts of the past still linger around each corner. The horrors that haunt these corridors are real and terrifying ... The Night will make you reconsider ever spending a night away from home again.
