Night Run is currently making the Indiegogo run for financing head on over to the campaign here and get out yer wallets!!!
NIGHT RUN is my massive love letter to the 1980’s and its awesome action movies. The film follows Daniel McKormack, a man who resurrects from his grave on a Halloween night seeking revenge on the men who murdered him a year prior. Follow Daniel as he teams up with the towns’ Sheriff, featuring car chases, synth music and 80’s imagery way to rad to be typed in a single sentence.
NIGHT RUN was born out of the love of the 1980’s, from films, commercials, fashion and music. It all came from that amazing decade that gave us Alf and Where’s The Beef lady. To put it this way, Night Run is a supernatural Death Wish meets Miami Vice. Casting, script re-writes and location scouting occurred during the spring of 2016. Filming took place several weeks later in downtown Los Angeles on July of 2016.
The intention with NIGHT RUN is to make a full 90 minute movie. A movie that will look and feel as an actual film shot in 1985, from the costume design, the films score and direction, without trying to over stylize the visuals. Imagine a film that you could watch back to back with The Terminator, Die Hard or even a Friday the 13th flick.
