After Dark Horrorfest IV in Theatres 2010





The After Dark Horrorfest has become a genre staple of sorts by releasing eight films to die for every year. True, they're not all winners but over the years some real gems have emerged from the mediocre, and there will be more to come.

That's right, kids, After Dark Films announced today that The After Dark Horrorfest IV will indeed take place in 2010. While it's still mega early in the game, nothing but the festival announcement is in place at this point. We'll let you know as soon as anything else shakes outta their huge twisted tree.

In case you missed them -- check out our reviews for The After Dark Horrorfest, The After Dark Horrorfest II, and The After Dark Horrorfest III.

I really think only one or two films from each fest are generally decent enough to warrant a view, even given the standards you have to set for a low-budget indie horror fest. But this year all of the entires except for one out of the five so far look legitimately good--not just decent, but actually good. Lake Mungo looks the best so far, especially given that it's already been picked up for a remake by the producers of The Ring. And ZMD is supposed to be very much in the vein of Shaun of the Dead.

I'm actually looking forward to the fest this year for once, so hopefully it won't disappoint.

I've absolutely hated every movie I've watched from this thing. I don't think the horror genre needs to promoted by unleashing horrible movies on an unsuspecting audience. I think the majority of people who watches these things are not out there browsing sites like this. It's movies like these that give horror a bad name. Most people I know in real life think horror films are a waste of time. They've never seen the good ones. If anything bring on more Masters of Horror. I enjoy the hell out of those.

I wonder if it will have a wider release than III?

I liked AfterDark Horrorfest II the best of the three to date. I enjoyed more in that group of 8 than in I and III. Borderland, Deaths of Ian Stone, Unearthed weren't too bad. I also liked Frontiers which WAS going to be one of the films included that year but instead got it's own release later.

I'm not sure if this is good or bad news. I suppose anything that promotes horror is good, but still ... so many of the movies are just pitiful.
