One of the standouts at this year’s Fantastic Fest was The Night Comes For Us, an Indonesian experiment in ultra-violence comprised of what our own Katie Rife called “a series of gonzo action set-pieces so ingeniously bloody that one could conceivably classify the film as horror.” The plot of Timo Tjahjanto’s feature follows a Triad assassin who spares a girl’s life during a massacre only to find himself targeted by a bloodthirsty slew of gangsters. There’s shades of John Wick here, but this anti-hero’s kill count might clock even higher. If you’re still not sold, watch the above trailer with the knowledge that The Night Comes For Us features one of the best neck-stabbing scenes of all time.

The Night Comes For Us will aim for the jugular when it hits Netflix on October 19.
