Just in time for Halloween, MPC VR and Guy Shelmerdine are back together for the premiere of Night Night, a horrifying virtual reality film that takes audiences on a chilling experience beyond imagination. The premiere at New York Film Festival on September 29th will also serve as the launching pad for Dark Corner’s VR app, which will contain eight immersive trips that fans of the horror genre surely won’t want to miss.
Inside Night Night, viewers are taken back to the days of youth, when nighttime served as the perfect setting for the scariest of creatures to reveal themselves from the shadows and steal us from our beds. Only this time, it isn’t only their imagination – and the world is full of demonic clowns and a world of terror. The film was shot on Dark Corner’s custom camera rig, designed in collaboration with Radiant Images, and MPC was there every step of the way, shot in location in Prague.
“The horror genre has proven to be a perfect fit for VR,” said Tim Dillon, MPC’s Head of VR & Immersive Content. “We co-produced Night Night because it is exactly the kind of film that we want to see more of. With the right mix of story and spectacle, it’s conceived and shot to be experienced in-headset, so it pushes all of the right buttons.”
MPC VR and Dark Corner first teamed up in 2015 for the SXSW release of Catatonic, a ride through a 1950’s mental hospital with masked killers and freakish patients. Catatonic medium proved to be a fan favourite in the early days of VR, and set the bar for using virtual reality and horror for maximum impact. The premiere in 2015 was a huge success worldwide, and Catatonic will also be available inside of the app.
Night Night was co-written by Teal Greyhavens, and co-produced by Dark Corner Studios, MPC VR , Q Department, Mach 1 and Unit Sofa.
