Astari Nite is delighted to announce the featuring of their track “The Boy Who Tried” in the movie The Everglades Killings, directed by Ben Wilder. The movie premiered last week in NYC at the Cinepolis Chelsea Theater 8 @ the famous New York City Horror Film festival.
A quick glimpse of the synopsis of the movie says this much:
“Known for hundreds of years as an impenetrable, gator-infested insect hatchery, the Florida Everglades distinctly offers mankind a thousand different ways to die. Add a serial murderer to the mix of pythons, gators, panthers, and jurassic sized disease-carrying insects – and you’re easily left with America’s most dangerous park. So when ten college students trade in their beach plans for reptiles and mosquitos – they quickly learn the term ‘hopeless’ has a whole new meaning.”

We wanted to reproduce those times where you want to keep the night going, and preferably with someone else riding that same wave as you.
