You can’t go home again–without running into a crazed cult–in the horror film releasing next month.

Well Go USA brings THE LONG NIGHT to select theaters and digital platforms February 4. Directed by Rich Ragsdale from a script by Robert Sheppe and Mark Young, it stars Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN), Nolan Gerard Funk, Kevin Ragsdale, Deborah Kara Unger (CRASH, SILENT HILL) and Jeff Fahey (THE LAWNMOWER MAN, GRINDHOUSE). The synopsis: “While searching for the parents she’s never known, New York transplant Grace [Taylor-Compton] returns to her childhood southern stomping grounds with her boyfriend [Funk] to investigate a promising lead on her family’s whereabouts. Upon arrival, the couple’s weekend takes a bizarre, terrifying turn as a nightmarish cult and their maniacal leader terrorize the pair en route to fulfilling a twisted ancient apocalyptic prophecy.”
