The Night Comes For Us (Review)- House Of Tortured Souls

If you are into a very gory, action-packed thriller, then you MUST check out The Night Comes For Us on Netflix. The Night Comes For Us is an Indonesian film that was written and directed by Timo Tjahjanto. The film stars Iko Uwais, Joe Taslim (Fast & Furious 6), Julie Estelle (The Raid 2), Sunny Pang, Zack Lee (Bad Wolves, Headshot) and Shareefa Daanish.

The film focuses on Ito (Joe Taslim) who is known as one out of the six elites for the South East Asian Triad which is also called the Six Seas. Ito decides to turn his back as a killer upon rescuing a young girl named Reina (Asha Kenyeri Bermudez) who saw the massacre of her family happen in her village. He then hides Reina at his ex girlfriend Shinta’s (Salvita Decorte) place. Shinta takes care of Ito’s injuries from which he endured from killing his fellow soldiers. Knowing that there is nothing more for her to do, Shinta calls in a man named Faith (Abimana Aryasatya) who use to be in a gang with Ito. Faith takes Ito and Reina back to his apartment, and also calls in his cousin Wisnu and the last member of the gang Bobby (Zack Lee), who is a drug addict. Bobby tries to help them by getting them passports so they can restart all over. When you think there is hope, it turns in to one whirlwind after another when word gets through from other Tirads and those Ito has turned his back on, to an ultimate man hunt, all for the girl, and betrayal.

This movie was cringe-worthy at its finest jammed pack full of gore, martial arts and epic fight scenes. Things that you were not aware that could be used as weapons were. And as much as I felt my eyes squint and my body squirm, I could not look away as I anticipated more that was yet to come. For me personally, I’m not into a lot of action/martial arts movies but this was a whole different genre. It was a constant whirlwind of blood, guts, and sacrifice. Sacrifice from old members helping Ito out, particularly because in the end, there really is no way out of a gang. You may think you are safe, but anything can happen in a blink of an eye. I absolutely loved the thrill and rush of it all.

Check out the trailer below, and I highly, highly recommend that once you check the trailer out, that you will not make plans on a Friday night and enjoy the gore for yourself!
