We didn’t pay much attention to the next movie Silent night here on Arrow in the Head because it was described as a “Christmas comedy” and a “dark comedic drama”, and those types of movies aren’t our specialty. But now the latest press release described it as “dark comedic drama / horror.” So ok, Silent night. You have our attention. Let’s see how it goes. Starring Keira Knightley, this dark comedic drama / horror film is set to hit theaters and the AMC + streaming service on December 3rd.
Writer / director Camille Griffin’s first feature film, Silent night has the following summary:
In British fashion (as the rest of the world faces looming disaster), a group of old friends come together to celebrate Christmas in the comfort of an idyllic country house. Overwhelmed by the inconvenience of the impending destruction of humanity, they adopt a stiff upper lip, open another bottle of prosecco, and continue their festivities. But no dose of stoicism can replace the courage needed for their last night on earth.
Knightley, who is perhaps best known for her role in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, is joined in the cast by Matthew Goode (Downton abbey), Roman Griffin Davis (Bunny Jojo), Annabelle Wallis (Smart), Lily Rose-Depp (Yoga Hosers), Ṣọpé Dìrísù (London gangs), Kirby Howell-Baptiste (The right place), Lucy Punch (In the woods), Rufus Jones (Flack) and Trudie Styler (Pose).
Knightley once faced the apocalypse in the 2012 film Looking for a friend for the end of the world.
A trailer for Silent night is not yet available, but we hear that one will be live soon. Can’t wait to see this and hope I can deduce how much of a horror movie it is.
In the meantime, some stills from the film can be seen below:
