Night Hunter was stuck between a rock and a hard place: go with a tantalizing, vague title like Nomis that would probably get mispronounced to hell, or adopt a generic, hyper-masculine title like Night Hunter. The David Raymond film obviously went with the latter.
The thing about a title like Night Hunter is that it’s both too specific and too vague — sure, it’s about a person who hunts at night, but what does that mean? In this case, the hunter in the title refers to a serial killer who at the beginning of the film is arrested — but that doesn’t stop him from taking more lives with every passing second, despite the efforts of Henry Cavill, Alexandria Daddario, and Ben Kingsley.
