A neo-noir set in the New York City's corrupt contemporary art world where the art dealer John Kaplan and the ruthless head of New York's mafia, Michael Rubino, fight for money, art, power and love.

Reviews
  • Silverscreenanalysis.com: The gun-play kicks in with a self-awareness that really makes it pop. It gets bloody and elegant all at the same time and I had fun with the sporadic tones, and noir atmosphere this one delivers. The hyper-reality was tuned-in just right to create a fun escape into a violent world of maniacal villains, art, sex, and gun-fights.
  • Shadowsonthewall.co.uk: Hirsch  [has] fun along the way, veering wildly from thoughtful to petulant to maniacal.
  • Markreviewsmovies.com: American Night portrays plenty of corruption, in the underworlds of both art and crime, and chaos, especially in its action-heavy climax.
  • Flickeringmyth.com: Style, gritty suspense, and colorful characters.

It’s now a race against time as the detectives must use clues in the video to rescue the students and uncover the identity of their kidnapper. As the detectives get closer to their location, they find themselves in the middle of a dense forest on the outskirts of Stoker Hills, and what they uncover is far worse than anything the town has ever seen.

Reviews
  • Voicesfromthebalcony.com: An offbeat and enjoyable mix of found footage and conventional footage as well as a mix of horror, thriller and police procedural. A great job.
  • Carlosdev.wordpress.com: Enjoyable horror-thriller with a fair amount of gore and enough interest in the plot to keep one watching until the very end.
  • Taliesinttlg.blogspot.com: Definitely worth a watch.
  • Mybloodyreviews.com: Something different within the found-footage genre by actually having cops look into the footage that has been found and trace the missing youngsters.
  • Scaredsheepless.wordpress.com: If you are looking for something trying something new and not outstaying its welcome, you may well find something worthwhile within Stoker Hills.
  • Leisurebyte.com: The gratuitous amount of body horror and the blood and gore does push us to really be invested and be scared for the missing students. Twisty Story Keeps It Engaging.
