Take Back The Night

ARROW premieres a provocative horror debut

Out on:VOD 10th Oct. 2022

On October 10 2022, the essential, alternative streaming service ARROW premieres TAKE BACK THE NIGHT, a dark urban chiller with a powerful kick.

Monsters are real in TAKE BACK THE NIGHT, the debut feature from director Gia Elliot, co-written with lead actress Emma Fitzpatrick, the story of an artist, celebrating her first gallery show, who is assaulted by a strange supernatural creature, and takes it upon herself to track it down when the police doubt her hazy recollections of the terrible event.

With echoes of Candyman with Promising Young Woman, the film features a terrific, gutsy performance from Emma Fitzpatrick, and an intriguing premise that mixes horror elements with current social issues to powerful effect, TAKE BACK THE NIGHT builds to a very tense and taut final act that you won’t see coming.

Elliot, who won Best Director at the 2021 GenreBlast Film Festival, and the prestigious George A.Romero Fellowship at last year’s Salem Horror Fest, has an assured grasp of the material, ensuring TAKE BACK THE NIGHT is much more than just a monster movie. Instead, it will stay with you long after the credits have rolled.


An allegorical story of violence against women and the dangers of victim-blaming wrapped in a classic monster movie, writer-director Gia Elliot takes no prisoners in her multi award-winning debut feature Take Back the Night.

Finding herself the victim of a violent monster attack, Jane launches a vigilante campaign to hunt the beast that tried to kill her. But her troubling history of drug use and mental illness bubbles to the surface, causing her family, community and the authorities to question her account. Alone in her fight, Jane starts to doubt her own memory of the attack… and to wonder if the monster exists at all.

Fuelled by formidable female talent both in front of and behind the camera, Take Back the Night is a terrifying suspense thriller that’s both an eye-opening exposé and a powerful rallying cry.
