After hitting Blu-ray and DVD late last year, the Robert Englund-starring Nightworld has just landed on Netflix.
As well as Englund, Nightworld also stars ‘90s favourite Jason London (twin brother of Mallrats’ Jeremy) as former LAPD officer Brett Irlam, who uncovers dark secrets and malevolent forces in an old apartment building in Bulgaria. London is no doubt best remembered for Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused but has been crazy busy with genre fare of late, appearing in Combat Shock director Buddy Giovinazzo’s A Night
of Nightmares, TV movie Shark Island and alongside Daryl Hannah in 2015’s Awaken.
When former LAPD Officer Brett Irlam takes a job as head of security at an old apartment building in Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia, he soon begins to experience a series of bizarre and terrifying events. Once he begins to delve deep into the building’s sinister history and investigate its shadowy owners and past employees, Brett soon uncovers a malevolent force nestled deep in the bowels of the building in the basement that will do anything to be set free into our world.
Hidden in the Woods/Downhill director Patricio Valladares directed Nightworld from a script by Dimitar Hristov, Milan Konjevic (Zone of The Dead) and Downhill writer Barry Keating.
