Two more of the After Dark Original films made in conjunction with the Syfy Channel – Scream of the Banshee and The Task – have officially been announced for a Stateside home video release, and we’ve the scoop for you to dig on!

From the Press Release: Horror fans will be terrified by those who know best, as the creators of the widely popular After Dark Horrorfest series return with two all-new original films. Available this July, Lionsgate debuts After Dark Originals: Scream of the Banshee and The Task on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand. Developed by today’s leading horror film producers – After Dark Films. Arriving on DVD July 26th, both films will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98 each.

A SyFy Channel co-production, Scream of the Banshee stars Lauren Holly (TV’s “NCIS”) and Lance Henriksen (TV’s “Millennium”). Holly plays an archeology professor who discovers an ornate box in the basement of the university. When the box is opened, it unleashes the bloodcurdling scream of the banshee alluded to in Irish folklore. Not eager to take the threat of looming deaths of those who hear it very seriously, everyone tries to move on until the creature begins to come for them. An original film event, Scream of the Banshee made its debut on SyFy in March 2011.

    A group of unlucky reality show contestants meet unexpected consequences in the original film The Task. Six college students compete for a cash prize by enduring a night in an abandoned prison. The group thinks they are exploring their carefully controlled environment when things start to go awry. And as the decrepit prison gets creepier and more threatening, the camera crew realizes this isn’t what they signed up for either.
