With January 29, 2010, right around the corner, the After Dark Horrorfest 4 draws closer and closer. Today they announced their seventh film to die for — The Reeds.
From the Press Release
THE REEDS was written by Chris Baker and Simon Sprackling from a story by Chris Baker. Nick Cohen directs a cast of young actors, including Anna Brewster, O.T. Fagbenle, Will Mellor, Danny Caltagirone, Scarlett Johnson, and Emma Catherwood. Geoff Bell appears as Mr. Croker. The film was produced by Simon Sprackling, with Charlie Gauvain co-producing. Screen East, Silverstream Productions, Altadena Films, Delacheroy Films, and DI Dragon financed the picture.
In THE REEDS a weekend boating trip through the Norfolk Broads becomes a deadly ordeal for six 20-something-year-old friends who lose their bearings in the vast reedy tidewaters. Chances of escape and hopes for survival diminish as inexplicable forces terrorize the lost and terrified group.
Dana Lambert, VP of Acquisitions at After Dark, brokered the deal with Ildi Toth Davy of Altadena Films. ADF Exec Stephanie Caleb stated, “We’re thrilled to have acquired Nick Cohen’s latest feature! The cast is terrific, and the seemingly tranquil and scenic setting is anything but!! This isn’t a place you’d want to be lost.”
Producer Simon Sprackling added, “We are surprised and delighted to be signed up for such a prestigious genre showcase and to have the weight of the studio behind us.” Director Cohen commented, “I am delighted that The Reeds has been selected for the After Dark slate. It is a real privilege to be participating in such an exciting and groundbreaking festival line-up.”
