Darkest Night (2012)
More found footage horror movies on the way. I am kind of getting tired of the found footage material but Darkest Night looks like a good movie. The mood is really terrifying and scary throughout the trailer, I am hoping that the entire movie will be as good.
Gothic Productions International, a Philippine company funded by U.S. independent resources, has premiered its latest film “Darkest Night” in greater Manila on November 15, 2011 at the Teatrino Theater. The film has almost all Filipino actors, as well as American DJ Perry of “The 8th Plague,” “Wicked Spring” and many other popular U.S. horror films.
“Darkest Night” was directed by experienced Filipino director, Noel Tan. It was written and produced by U.S. screenwriter, Russ Williams. Tan has 20 years of experience in creating quality drama on film and working with skilled actors. He has done directing work in other parts of Southeast Asia, including Singapore and Malaysia, where he directed photography for a variety of video programs for cable television, such as The Disney Channel, “Chef for Hire,” “I Will Survive” and Kliktv.com (Web TV). He also worked as co-director and videographer for “Manny Pacquiao’s First MTV.” Williams has been a career writer for 30 years. In 1995, he began film-making in Los Angeles, including screenwriting and producing.
In this film, GPI is happy to announce that DJ Perry, an edgy leading man from the U.S., played the leading actor role, Ken Tyler. Perry has starred in several American horror/thrillers, as well as westerns and dramatic period pieces. Some of his better-known films include “G.P.S.,” “An Ordinary Killer,” “Book of Ruth, Journey of Faith” and Lionsgate’s 2008 hit “Dean Teaster’s Ghost Town.” Perry co-starred in director M.R. Shahjahan’s thriller “Karma Crime, Passion, Reincarnation,” produced by Golden Ticket Films & Picture Perfect Films and released theatrically across India in 2009. Perry actively seeks projects to bridge audiences from east and west. He and his company, Collective Development, Inc., will be handling the film’s marketing and distribution in North America and the U.K.
The leading actress role, Susan Reyes, was played by French-Filipina Anne Gauthier. Always passionate about theater and film, she has a truly international background, including having lived in several countries. She took acting courses in France at the well-renowned Cours Florent and Acting International. She has performed in several commercials in the Philippines for Globe telecom and PhCare, as well as acting in plays and independent film.
