After Dark Originals: Husk Sales Art

The first bit of sales art debuted today for the After Dark Original Husk, and we totally approve. If only because we’re suckers for killer scarecrow movies! Dig it!

Tapping into the vast and innovative talent of directors and filmmakers from Horrorfest’s acquisitions over the past four years, After Dark has taken the horror festival concept to a higher level. After Dark Originals showcases eight new cutting edge horror films spanning the genre. The mission is to create high quality horror films that provide After Dark full control from script concept through final editing.

The first installment of ADO includes Husk, Fertile Ground, Scream of the Banshee, Prowl, The Task, Re-Kill, Seconds Apart, and 51. Notable directors and writers include Brett Simmons, whose short film “Husk” took Sundance by storm several years ago, Steven C. Miller of Automaton Transfusion fame, and previous After Dark writer/director Adam Gierasch (Autopsy). All ADO films were shot in the US and Bulgaria.

All eight Originals will benefit from After Dark’s new and innovative marketing and release strategy. Scream of the Banshee is scheduled to premiere on Syfy in 2011. Additionally, the second set of Originals has already been greenlit and will start production in July, 2010.

The story sees five friends on a weekend trip who become stranded in isolated farmland when crows attack their SUV. They soon realize that the cornfields are inhabited by reanimated human scarecrows who reproduce by killing and forcing their undead victims to join their ranks.

In Husk Devon Graye plays the brainiac of the group, C. J. Thomason is the blue-collar guy, and Wes Chatham is the jock. Brett Simmons directs.

    Maybe this will be the film that finally reveals Scarecrow sex! I can picture some interesting follow up Jerry Springer episodes about ‘That Ain’t My Baby!’
