Tonight She Comes

When a girl goes missing, two of her friends and a mysterious set of strangers find themselves drawn to the cabin in the woods where she disappeared. As events unfold, they will laugh, they will drink, they will kiss, they will make love — and most of them will die. This mid-Missouri-shot horror film was directed by St. Charles native Matt Stuertz, lensed by St. Louis’ go-to cinematographer Chris Benson, and features a cast of primarily local actors. We Are Movies Geeks hails the film as “one of the funniest and most engaging pieces of exploitation to be crafted in the past few years” and describes “Tonight She Comes” as “the best homage to the ideas that Sam Raimi set up in ‘The Evil Dead’ since Drew Goddard’s ‘The Cabin in the Woods.’” The website UK Horror Scene is just as effusive in its praise: “These ain’t just pretty people getting stalked in the woods; these are shaded characters with flaws and personalities.… It’s the type of horror we’ve been waiting for, and then some. Funny, scary, vomit-inducing, unpredictable and flat-out insane.”
