A “Grimy, Brutal Take on the 70s Action Thriller” from Eric BoccioComing to Select Theaters VOD and Digital Platforms January 13, 2023 

What the Critics are Saying…

A blood-soaked cult-infested movie.”​ –MOVIE REVIEWS 101

“Night of the Bastard is a grimy, brutal take on the 70’s action thriller. It wears its grindhouse on its sleeve but delivers enough unique touches of its own stand out from the crowd.”​ –STARBURST MAGAZINE

There’s more to Night of the Bastard than just a standard siege story. It’s a brilliant subversion of the tropes and cliches of this particular sub-genre but one that’s hinted at from the very title of the film!“​- NERDLY UK


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.
