Keeping with their theme of having an incredibly hot chick somehow being obscured by horrific themes, After Dark Films has released its international main event one-sheet, and we approve. Man, do we approve!
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.
