Disgruntled hermit Reed lives a solitary life in the desert. After chasing away a group of youths trying to party near his home, Reed’s peaceful life is violently upheaved when a goup of savage cultists lay siege to his house.
Forced to partner up with one of the party-goers, Reed and his newfound colleague must defend themselves into the night, all while long-buried and disturbing secrets are revealed to him as part of the cult’s evil plan.
NIGHT OF THE BASTARD stars London May (The Dark Knight Rises, Verotika), Mya Hudson (A Wall Away, upcoming F*ck, Kill Mary), Hannah Pierce (Flock of Dudes, The Hunted), and Henry Mortensen (Crimson Tide).
The film is directed by Erik Boccio (Funny or Die’s Weirdfellas, Brutal Realty, Inc. Blood Bath). The screenplay is by Chuck Foster and Christian Ackerman, based on a story by Boccio and May. Boccio, May, and Ackerman produced the film.
