Upcoming local horror movie Late Night Ride is set for release this October, just in time for Halloween. Late Night Ride is the debut feature of filmmaker Koh Chong Wu 高崇悟. Chong Wu wanted to create a relatable and uniquely Singaporean movie of paranormal encounters on various means of transport in the dead of the night. The idea which started out as a short film came to fruition as a full-fledged horror feature with three individual plotlines that eventually converge –
A group of social media influencers, led by Nat (Jayley Woo 胡佳琪), decides to explore a haunted road and nearby cycling park, in an attempt to gain more viewers for their channel. Nat purposely breaks a taboo in the hopes of capturing paranormal activities and ends up being haunted. What will happen to her?
Jie (Andie Chen 陈邦鋆) lost his wife in a car accident and his son, Josh, has not spoken since. The father and son end up on a late-night bus ride where all dark secrets will be unveiled.
Min (Lina Ng 黄嫊方) is a private hire driver who works day and night to earn money for her father’s medical bills. Sinister happenings started to occur when she is on the roads and she needs to figure out why before the situation gets out of control.
“We are excited to be releasing Late Night Ride, a horror movie about the 3 modes of transport commonly found in Singapore – bicycle, taxi and bus. We hope that the audience will love the movie and show their support towards local films!” said Mr Lim Teck, Managing Director of Clover Films.
“We are really pleased to release Late Night Ride in time for Halloween. There has not been a local horror movie in the cinema for some time, and Late Night Ride, riding on the familiar modes of transportation as backdrop, would resonate with audiences pining for a good scream,” said Mr Ng Say Yong, Chief Content Officer, mm2 Asia Ltd.
Late Night Ride is presented by Clover Films and mm2 Entertainment (a wholly-owned subsidiary of mm2 Asia Ltd.), co-distributed by Clover Films, mm2 Entertainment and Golden Village Pictures in Singapore, in association with Kaiju Lab and supported by Singapore Film Commission.
