Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars) stars in upcoming “erotic horror” film Alone at Night, and Deadline has shared a first-look image of her character (above).
The film follows: “Vicky (Benson), a young woman looking for an escape after going through a tumultuous breakup. After retreating to a friend’s remote cabin in the woods to clear her head, she continues modeling sexy lingerie for her devoted followers on 18 & Over, an adults-only, live-streaming website.
“But when the power goes out, Vicky discovers something terrifying awaiting her in the dark — a masked killer wielding a crowbar who’s hellbent on bringing her night to a grisly end.”
Pamela Anderson (Barb Wire), Luis Guzmán (Wednesday), Paris Hilton (House of Wax), Lindsey Pelas (Extraction), John Robinson (Lords of Dogtown), Cassius Corrigan (Huracán), and Sky Ferreira (Baby Driver) also star in Alone at Night alongside model Winnie Harlow, rapper A$AP Nast, and musician G-Eazy, the latter of whom composed the score. The film was directed by Jimmy Giannopoulos, who co-wrote the script with Diomeds Raul Bermudez.
“With Alone at Night I wanted to make the kind of movie I would have snuck into as a teen,” Giannopoulos told Deadline. “Slasher, stoner, a sexy thriller with killer music. Playing on the nostalgia of my favorite B-horror we truly made a terrifyingly fun film. Though the themes of isolation and obsession are as old as time, culture always breeds new ways for them to manifest. You can isolate but you can’t hide.”
Vertical Entertainment recently picked up North American distribution rights for Alone at Night and plan to release the film on January 20th, 2023.
