Amazon is teaming up with Blumhouse for Black as Night, as it continues its partnership with the genre specialists to produce and release a string of original genre flicks from a diverse range of storytellers.
The first four films premiered last year in October, including The Lie, Black Box, Evil Eye and Nocturne. Now, another quartet of spooky cinema offerings are on the way this October. One of the first is Black as Night, which arrives on 1st October, along with Bingo Hell.
A resourceful teenage girl leaves childhood behind when she battles a group of deadly vampires in Black as Night, an action-horror hybrid with a strong social conscience and a biting sense of humor. Fifteen years after Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans, a new threat leaves its mark on the Big Easy in the form of puncture wounds on the throats of the city’s vulnerable displaced population. When her drug-addicted mom becomes the latest victim of the undead, 15-year old Shawna (Asjha Cooper) vows to even the score. Along with three trusted friends, Shawna hatches a bold plan to infiltrate the vampire’s mansion in the historic French Quarter, destroy their leader, and turn his fanged disciples back to their human form. But killing monsters is no easy task, and soon Shawna and her crew find themselves caught in a centuries-old conflict between warring vampire factions, each fighting to claim New Orleans as their permanent home.
Directed by Maritte Lee Go and written by Sherman Payne, the film stars Asjha Cooper, Fabrizio Guido, Mason Beauchamp, Abbie Gayle with Craig Tate and Keith David. It is exec-produced by Jason Blum, Jeremy Gold, Marci Wiseman, Lisa Bruce, Maggie Malina and Guy Stodel.
