Cold Comes the Night on DVD and VOD in February

12 February 2014

Chloe and daughter Sophia live in a rundown motel on a lonely highway pit stop. As the proprietor of the motel, Chloe is in financial trouble and has let Billy, a corrupt cop, take advantage of her situation. One night, Topo, a nearly blind career criminal, and his driver stop at the motel while en route to deliver cash to an unknown boss. After an accident kills his driver and impounds his car, he takes Chloe and Sophia hostage and forces Chloe to be his new driver and guide, using Sophia as collateral. They set out after Billy, who has stolen Topo’s money from the car. Hoping to escape to a better life, Chloe tries to strike a deal with Topo but soon finds herself in over her head, and a series of double crosses leaves a cloud of mayhem and murder.

Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Golden Globe winner Bryan Cranston (Best Actor for TV’s Breaking Bad, but you knew that, didn't you) star in Cold Comes the Night, which was directed by the man behind Children of Invention, Tze Chun. The PR people are calling it an "edge-of-your-seat, cat-and-mouse thriller", though critical response has been warm at best, with CineVue claiming that "Without its two lead stars, Cold Comes the Night would be little more than a glorified DTV also-ran," though UK Screen suggested that "as a traditional low-budget B-movie, it’s an effective piece of entertainment," and there has been plenty of praise for the lead performances.

Cold Comes the Night will be released on UK DVD and digital download on 17th February 2014 by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Extra features will include deleted scenes, but we have no more than that at this stage.
