Did you just hear something spooky? No?? Well, the buzz is that there is a new director in town, who is debuting with his movie “The Vast of Night”, an Amazon Original compelling enough to send some chilly waves down the spine.
‘The Vast of Night‘ is a sci-fi movie written by James Montague and Craig W. Sanger. Starring Sierra McCormick and Jake Horowitz in the lead, the movie was released on 29th May 2020 on Amazon.
Promising to keep us on the edge with his new directorial debut is Mr. Andrew Patterson, who has made quite an impression with its first feature film & honestly we are quite impressed!
The film initially premiered at the 2019 Slamdance Film Festival where it received critical applaud & was later released this year theatrically in the US by Amazon Studios.
The film set in the 1950’s Mexico, is about a night when a young switchboard operator Fay & a charming radio Dj Everett encounters a strange radio frequency.
A sci-fi that dictates a suspenseful story of a night in a small town in New Mexico. A strange radio frequency encountered by Fay & Everett that changes their lives forever as they lead on a scavenger hunt towards the unknown.
Traversing across a particular night of an ancient era, this movie captures the amusements that technology has to offer. A tale of unnerving experiences that one undergoes in the course of unraveling about the unknown.
Patterson fades the camera to black for a few minutes at the time for the audiences to dig in deep with the darkness grasping onto every word of the deranging ploy.
The movie also comes out to be a total winner with the fact that it doesn’t develop any romantic connections between the protagonists diverting from the plot, rather it remains true to its core.
‘The Vast of Night‘ is not something we haven’t seen before, but it’s something which is not seen before in a manner that is shown now. The movie also takes an interesting turn by showing some UFO emergences that the town may have been experiencing.
Great piece on how the most talked about unseen movie at #Sundance got its infamous killer shot. (Hint: #NotADrone) @thevastofnight won the #AudiencePrize @Slamdance for good reason. Keep eye out for #AndrewPatterson & his team. Thanks, @FilmThreat ! https://t.co/pFTA5tFQ3z

“The journey here is better than the destination but like the mysterious sound from above, Patterson makes a noise that’s worth noticing.”
-Robert Denerstein (source: Rotten Tomatoes)
“Andrew Patterson’s soaringly creative, sci-fi mind-bender isn’t limited by its low-fi budget. What makes it one of the best (and most unclassifiable) movies of the year is the hypnotic way it keeps re-inventing itself from scene to scene.”- Peter Travers (source: Rotten Tomatoes)
A suspenseful act that gradually emerges as a period thriller is a, unlike anything you have seen in a very long time. Keeping you on toes, ‘The Vault of Night’ is an epic work on sci-fi without many special effects. A film that entirely rests upon the shoulders of the actors, who have done a phenomenal job & its classic approach of story-telling. A praiseworthy entertainment by Andrew Robertson is worth noticing.
A detailed work of fiction, with a dazzling camera score. A bold, surprising, and deeply original piece of work, reverent to its references and haunting in its darkened, dreamlike form.
