There’s been a lot of talk about Night Film and even though I didn’t know a lot about it before I indulged into the terrifying depths of this story, it was well worth the unknown. This excerpt from the trailer reveals a bit about the story of a beautiful young girl, Ashley Cordova who is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Her father is the legendary Stanislas Cordova, famed film director of 15 psychological thrillers. But the burning question behind Night Film, is who exactly is Stanislas Cordova. Perhaps an excerpt from the book’s trailer may draw some clues.
“As a director, Cordova has a unique place in the film world. Either you love his work, or you’re too terrified to go near it. He’s hypnotic because he’s hidden. Cordova lives, thrives, underground. He’s a threat to society because he isn’t selling anything. His power exists in the way he reveals us, to us. He shows us that no matter who we are, or just stumbling around in the dark unable to see but a few feet ahead. Just get into it, Cordova sings to his fans. Enter the Night Film. Many believe that Cordova the man does not even exist. That he’s a corporate invention for the masses to consume and fear, like God. I had a good friend who went after Cordova, the investigative journalist Scott McGrath. He wanted to see once and for all, what actually went on behind that curtain.”
I don’t want to give too much away about the book. It’s a new type of storytelling – laden with smart use of new media. So, I thought I’d do a different kind of post and post some of the excerpts I posted on Twitter while I was reading the book. So courtesy of @SukasaReads there are no spoilers here, but perhaps few glimpses into #NightFilm may intrigue you or frighten you.
