Parisian muso Sam sleeps through a zombie attack and wakes to find the City of Light plunged into existential darkness.

The Night Eats the World is a minimalist horror film, well made and very well acted and not without interest. But anyone expecting the usual thrills of a zombie movie will be quickly disillusioned.

If you are going to take a dusty old premise, you have to be creative -- and director Dominique Rocher does this with flair.

...plays out like a French indie I Am Legend, with lashings of 28 Days Later-style fast paced action and surprising moments of existential rumination.

A refreshing 'Paris is for zombies' old school survival film.
December 10, 2018
It's an engaging and pretty little film, one that fits comfortably in the ranks of other "Last Man on Earth" stories like The Quiet Earth or Z for Zachariah.
December 7, 2018

La nuit a dévoré le monde starts off in familiar zombie territory, but quickly distinguishes itself as more of a character drama about one man's isolation and despair.
August 30, 2018
The Night Eats the World is a play on the zombie thing, sure, but it's also a poetic way to address how the world shrinks around your depression and makes of all the possible avenues one small room.
August 27, 2018
Rarely is a zombie film this introspective or a horror hero this thoughtful. More than that, though, Rocher's horror is a meditation on loneliness.
August 3, 2018
In avoiding zombie clichés, the filmmakers forgot to replace them with anything else.

"The Night Eats the World" isn't above borrowing from other zombie movies - the frenzy of "28 Days Later" here, the dark humor of "Shaun of the Dead" there - but it does so in an engaging way.

This is one of the most imaginative, bloody and entertaining stories about a separation... [Full Review in Spanish]
