We just got our hands on the truly badass international artwork for one of the upcoming After Dark Originals, and all we can say is wow. If only America could be this ballsy with its cover art! We get floating heads. Pensive looking floating friggin’ heads.
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.
Check out the artwork for Re-Kill (click it for high res) below along with the plot crunch. Look for more soon!
It’s been five years since the Outbreak, and the zombie menace is supposed to be waning. But the brave men and women of R-Division, who find and destroy the undead, are seeing signs of a second Outbreak, which humanity may not survive. Footage about the men and women of R-Division and their grim, dangerous, but essential job of exterminating re-animated humans was shot the week previous by an embedded journalist during a long, deadly day. Only the film survived.
