In our previous Nightstream post we presented the 7 world premieres coming to the festival, and we certainly hope all attending fans begin with those when deciding which films to watch. That’s just the start, as there are many more fantastic premieres coming to Nightstream, and we certainly look forward to catching as many of them as possible. There are also some films which we’ve had the pleasure of viewing already, and we want to make sure we make a recommendation that you check these out as well…
Belgium, France, Ireland | 2020 | 96 Min. | Dir. Vincent Paronnaud
Acclaimed filmmaker/comic artist Vincent Paronnaud (director of Cannes Jury Prize and Academy Award nominee PERSEPOLIS) returns to the screen with an exhilaratingly ferocious survival horror flick that follows Eve, a woman who encounters a seemingly charming man at a bar, only to uncover that his true sociopathic nature will spark a dire, life-or-death chase through the wilderness. A Shudder Original Film.
