This July, beat the heat with two lauded films making their Blu-ray debuts from IFC Films and Shout! Factory. The foreboding and historically significant THE NIGHT and the thoughtful modern Western NO MAN’S LAND will both be available July 13th, 2021. Fans of these films can pre-order their copies now on ShoutFactory.com.

THE NIGHT is the story of how, after a night out with friends, an exhausted married couple, Babak (Shahab Hosseini) and Neda (Niousha Noor), and their baby take shelter in the grand, but eerie Hotel Normandie. Throughout a seemingly endless night, mysterious disturbances ruin their rest as Babak and Neda soon realize they’re locked in with a malevolent force that hungers for the dark secrets they’ve kept from one another.

With THE NIGHT, director Kourosh Ahari made history for being the first U.S.-produced film to receive a license for theatrical release in Iran since the revolution. The psychological thriller follows in the footsteps of The Shining, luring viewers into a hotel that is both ominous and inviting, where the ghosts of the past still linger around each corner. The horrors that haunt the corridors are real and terrifying … THE NIGHT will make me reconsider ever spending a night away from home again. Matt Zoller Seitz of RogerEbert.com called the film “A knockout debut — so assured that it stands on its own as a filmmaking achievement apart from its historical significance, which is considerable.”

On a Texas ranch sharing a border with Mexico, two families are about to collide in NO MAN’S LAND. While out on a border patrol, rancher’s son Jackson Greer accidentally kills a Mexican immigrant boy. When his father tries taking the blame, Jackson flees south on horseback, becoming a gringo “illegal alien” in Mexico. Pursued by both Texas Rangers and Mexican federales, he journeys across Mexico to seek forgiveness from the dead boy’s father … only to fall in love with the land he was taught to hate. Inspired by the real-life “no man’s land” along the Texas-Mexico border, this thoughtful modern Western explores an engrossing and potent new twist on a hot-button issue. Michael Ordoña, Los Angeles Times says the film is “Wise and empathetic … told with empathy and humanity.”
