Movie Review: The Vast of Night
Turn Off The Lights For "The Vast of Night"
If you like audio plays and ever wondered what it would look like if someone who loved them made a film, then Amazon Prime's latest, "The Vast of Night" a tailor-made fit for you.
This sci-fi story combines the best of intimate character byplay, an atmospheric intensity uniquely suited to a 1950 small town setting, and the driving need to know. It's a story worthy of a campfire and a starless night.

"did you hear that sound?"
This beings with a classic B-movie starting point. A young woman Fay (Sierra McCormick) is the switchboard operator who meets up with radio DJ Everett (Jake Horowitz) and swaps snappy conversation and shares random facts as they each head to work.
The town's all gathered in the school gym for the basketball game. So the two walk through empty streets. It sets the right tone and look. It's a dark foggy night. If something odds going to happen, well the right two inquisitive minds are paying attention.
Set at the dawn of the race into space and when it wasn't unheard of for someone to call in sightings of unidentified flying objects, "The Vast of Night" is the best kind of a riddle wrapped in a mystery.
