Seen through the eyes of teenagers trying to find their identity, “As Night Comes” follows troubled new kid Sean Holloway (Myko Olivier), who falls in with a group of teenage outcasts called “The Misfits,” and under the wing of Ricky (Luke Baines), their dysfunctional yet charismatic leader. On the eve of Halloween, Ricky’s anarchist plan for revenge spirals out of control, culminating in brutal violence, and ultimately a fight for survival and freedom.
The film was co-written by 16-year-old Ryan Koehn, so the ambiance of pressure and isolation facing many teens is no doubt present.
Gravitas Ventures is distributing “As Night Comes” via VOD beginning December 5, but the coming-of-age film is also available for pre-order on iTunes immediately. As a special bonus, you’ll get exclusive behind-the-scenes footage which includes interviews with director Richard Zelniker and the cast. Take a look at the clip below:
