Official site, trailer now online

After Dark Originals. That’s the latest banner from After Dark Films, the outfit behind Horrorfest: 8 Films to Die For. And what separates Originals from Horrorfest is that they are not acquisitions.

The “Originals” slate finds After Dark partnering with Lionsgate and NBC Universal’s SyFy. Their 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, Adam (Autopsy) Gierasch’s Fertile Ground, Scream Of The Banshee (from Automaton Transfusion‘s Steven Miller), Patrik (Rovdyr) Syversen’s Prowl, The Task, Re-Kill (written by Michael Hurst), Seconds Apart and 51.

All ADO films were shot in the US and Bulgaria.

“The writers and directors in our After Dark Originals line are outstanding. We are excited to showcase their work and to give a home to all this fresh young talent that we will continue to develop over time,” says After Dark Films owner and CEO, Courtney Solomon.

Currently seven of the eight films have been filmed and are in post-production. The eighth to slated to start production this month.

All eight Originals will be released in third quarter 2010. Additionally, the second set of Originals has already been green lit and will start production in July 2010.
