AFTER DARK FILMS SHOWS ITS METTLE WITH LATEST TITLE HUSK SOWS FEAR AND REAPS HORROR IN THE LATEST
“AFTER DARK ORIGINALS” FILM
After Dark Films CEO Courtney Solomon has once again planted terror into the hearts of horror fans. Husk, the sixth chilling feature film as part of the AFTER DARK ORIGINALS is a gruesome tale written and directed by Brett Simmons (Mark of Love) based on Simmons’ short film of the same name. The film stars Wes Chatham (The Unit, In the Valley of Elah), C.J. Thomason (The Big Bank Theory), and Devon Graye (Scar 3D and Showtime’s Dexter).
When a murder of crows smash into the windshield causing their car to crash, the group of young friends, inside, are forced to abandon the vehicle. Stranded beside a desolate cornfield, they see a light on in a window and decide to go in search of help. They head into the fields but instead of finding sanctuary they discover something evil and unnatural lurking in the corn.
“Think classic original horror films when you think of HUSK!”, says Solomon. “This film is a real throwback to that time; the true 1960s creepiness, a nerve-wracking suspenseful script, and real character development”. Husk, from Executive Producers Limor Diamant, Allen Zeman, & Stephanie Caleb, and Producer Courtney Solomon, was shot in Iowa and is currently in post-production. Release date for Husk and all eight Originals is scheduled for January 2011. The series was developed in partnership with Lionsgate.
After Dark Films made an unprecedented commitment to the production of eight original horror films this year under the After Dark Originals label, continuing the Company’s mantra of supporting first time independent film writers and directors. The creation of the AD Originals (www.afterdarkoriginals.com) slate is just another example of the Company’s commitment to the Indie film industry.
Unlike After Dark’s “8 Films To Die For®”, After Dark Originals are wholly financed and produced by After Dark Films. The ADO slate runs the gamut of the genre, from paranormal phenomena, black magic, and vengeful ghosts to psychological trauma, murderous psychopaths, vampires and the undead. After Dark polled its fans and is delivering the kinds of
movies they asked for!
The series is set to debut in the January 2011.
