    The Long Night (Rental) is a ninety minute film with a simple plot that has to stretch out every scene to try to get to that magic number like a high schooler playing with spacing to get to two pages (they even resort to unneeded chapter cards). The result is a boring film with nearly no action or scares (the cult mostly just points and lurks on the lawn). It doesn't work and seems a waste of a talented cast. One and 1/2 stars out of five.

    Grace is a mystery to herself and others. She longs to know her origin, her family. When she goes back to her Southern birthplace things go sideways and get extra weird. The film was originally going to be called, The Coven, but it is far more aptly titled as, The Long Night. The last 40 minutes take the viewer on an absolute whirlwind. Scout Taylor-Compton gives a great performance in her leading role, and Deborah Kara Unger (from Cronenberg's Crash) has a nice spot as well. The film boasts fantastic art direction and costume design. Although so much happens towards the end, the visual direction from Rich Ragsdale shines all the way through. It's easy to forget that it's a budgeted horror film. The project is ambitious, and it delivers.

    Scout Taylor Compton gives a strong performance in this Southern Gothic horror tale. A second beautifully filmed scary feature from director Rich Ragsdale, following Ghost House. Possible set-up for a sequel. I'd like to see this demonic cult-fueled storyline continue into the big cities of the South!

    A lot of thing went down in the last part of the movie. too many unanswered questions. And the worst thing...a terror movie which doesn't scary at all.

    After a promising start, the Long Night's plot premise has nowhere to go - and the daughter that's come home to 'fulfill the prophecy' is surrounded over and over by people in folklore garb. The between the legs starburst of light moment was extremely painful.

    This movie was so incredible to watch and so much more different to the genre. I loved the performances so much from the cast especially Scout Taylor Compton and Nolan Gerard Funk had such great chemistry on screen together! The cinematography, acting, story and every detail was so refreshing especially the incredible director Rich Ragsdale. It's definitely a must see for horror fans all over the world.

    Giving it 1 star is generous. There is literally nothing here. The masks are the coolest part of the movie, if you have seen them in the cover art, you are done. No need at all to watch a totally cliche and boring film. And no the ending is not worth watching, just picture the most cliche ending to a satan blloodlines worshiping cult film, and you will know the ending to this.... Yea, the main actress is terrible. The guy is actually not terrible, but they gave him nothing to play off, so feel sorry for that actor as he might have a future but sure this movie if anything will set him back. But yea, the main actress feels totally perfect in that her acting is as cliche as the story, nothing original or even interesting here.

    While searching for the parents she's never known, Grace (Scout Taylor-Compton, Rob Zombie's Halloween) has come back home to the south with her boyfriend Jack (Nolan Gerard Funk) to track down a clue as to where her family may have disappeared to. But you know what I always say about never going home again? Well, when your home has an apocalyptic cult in it, maybe Grace should have stayed in New York. Originally called The Coven, this story starts with Mr. Caldwell inviting the couple to his home and offering to share his research into where they've gone. But when Grace and Jack get there, he's nowhere to be found. There's a big snake in the kitchen, as Grace soon painfully discovers. And then the car won't start, leaving them stranded. And then Mr. Caldwell's brother Wayne (Jeff Fahey) shows up as a surprise. And then there's that cult that worships Uktena, who just might be involved quite intimately in Grace's past, led by The Master (Deborah Kara Unger from the Silent Hill movies). For a movie that starts out very cabin in the woods come back home to unearth dark secrets, this shifts into cosmic horror before it's done, which is a nice surprise. Writers Robert Sheppe and Mark Young have created an interesting tale for director Richard Ragsdale, who has directed several music videos (The Sword "Cloak of Feathers," Chevelle "Door to Door Cannibals") and has also composed the music for several movies and video games.
