After Dark is Faithless to Perkins’ 14

Perkins 14 is one of the new films to die for!After Dark Films is shedding its skin as the company prepares to start producing and distributing its own horror films. The first two features to come out of this new development will be Perkins’ 14 and Faithless.

After Dark’s CEO “>Courtney Solomon (interview) had this to say about the new move, “It’s great to see the Horrorfest slate take shape as we gear up for this year’s fest. This move into producing films as part of Horrorfest is a new initiative, and these two films are great examples to launch this concept.

Perkins’ 14, which will be directed by Dark Ride helmer Craig Singer, came to life via the online community at Massify, “revolves around the arrest of a suspected murderer and the bloodshed that follows.” This is the first feature length film that evolved straight from the Net, but Faithless came around by traditional means.

Stewart Hopewell will direct Faithless via a screenplay he co-wrote with Tim Long. This second title will involve an abused woman who escapes her horrid situation only to find out that there may be no escape from abuse.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
