The Night Eats the World

(La nuit a dévoré le monde)

A man (Anders Danielsen Lie, Personal Shopper) wakes up the morning after a party to find Paris invaded by the undead in this French indie zombie film.... More

"One night, Sam attends a raucous apartment party in Paris. But, pressured to show up against his will and not feeling festive, the dejected Sam heads to a private room and falls asleep. The next morning, everything has changed: The walls are stained with blood, there isn’t a living soul in sight, and the dead have taken over the streets. Barricading himself inside, he hunkers down for safety, anticipating a long haul. As the undead congregate outside, Sam passes the lonely months by entertaining himself however possible. But there’s only so long he can hold on to his sanity — and he may not be truly alone." (Tribeca Film Festival)Hide

The Press Reviews

  • ...plays out like a French indie I Am Legend, with lashings of 28 Days Later-style fast paced action and surprising moments of existential rumination. Full Review

  • Has some clever ideas and well-crafted moments, but in terms of horror fodder, it's so pared down you'll practically miss it if you blink. Full Review

  • No matter how spare and arty "The Night Eats the World" is, there's nothing here that hasn't been done before. Full Review

  • The makeup design and chase scenes are rote, and the little dramatic conflict - arguments over where to hide - traffic in the oldest clichés in the genre. Full Review

  • "The Night Eats the World" just feels like several rudderless months stuck in a building with a guy who probably wasn't all that fascinating before zombies struck, and isn't any more so now. Full Review

  • If you don't get too hung up on the film's many contrivances - particularly its uninspired finale and any scene where Lie speaks - you might find The Night Eats the World to be sufficiently moody. Full Review
