Storyline

Detective Mike Jericho is changing. He stops showing up for work and shuts out the people once important to him. Now, he spends all his time hanging out with his new friends, having fun, and learning how to hunt and kill innocent people. Mike is changing; and his new friends aren't quite human. Detective Jimi Cannon is searching. He's hitting the streets, fiercely looking for his best friend, Mike. Now, Jimi must enter a world of shadows and face off - guns blazing - against an enemy that won't die. He'll do everything he can to save Mike, but it will take more than courage for Jimi to survive the NIGHT! Featuring a soundtrack of world-renowned goth/industrial artists, NIGHT violently takes you on a journey into seductive darkness. Written by B Miller

Micro-budget 1st attempt
25 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Take a time proved (or time-worn) genre, vampires, and attempt to give it a slightly different slant. Treat vampirism more as an alternate life-style that seems to suggest there is a difference between murder and killing for survival. Pretty ambitious stuff on a $7000 budget.

Mike is introduced as he interrupts a burglary in progress. He accidentally shoots a young woman in the chest but amazingly she doesn't die. Needless to say it piques his curiosity and he looks for her. He must be an excellent detective because he finds her quickly. She is a vampire and she turns him. In the meantime Mike's friend is trying to find out what's up with his best friend.

Most of my complaints are on the technology side. Obvious video with what appears to be a camcorder, poor audio, bad lighting. Of course, many of those problems would not be issues today due to improved camera choices. Even in SD, a DVX at 24 or 30FPS, would give us a better quality image. Spend $1000 of your budget on a decent set of lights (that you can use in your next movie) and adjust your on camera's white balance. Use an off camera mic and hopefully and a sound guy.

The acting was hit or miss though I have definitely seen much worse even with higher budgets.

The sets looked cheap. Surely if you can find actresses to do sex scenes and partial nudity you can find friends with access to better sets.

The directing was competent though I would suggest being more conservative with the use of the skewed angles. Sometimes less is more.

There is a lot of nitpicking that we could do but it wouldn't contribute anything to the review. Give the director a better camera, use quality lighting and sound, and tone down the "tricks."

I am interested in seeing his later efforts.
