after dark film fest

Horror Headlines: Thursday November 19th, 2009

In case you missed it the first time around, a new feature trailer for Rick Jacobson's B-movie homage "Bitch Slap" has surfaced online. The film's selling point: cleavage. Lots and lots of cleavage.

Fans of the After Dark Horrofest, rejoice! The official website is now live, and packed with all sorts of time-wasting content. Whether or not this latest batch of indie horror is worth your precious time remains to be seen.

Indie director Larry Fessenden has reportedly walked away from New Line's remake of "The Orphanage." Here's hoping this derails the project altogether.

Are you starting to run out of things to do in "Borderlands?" If so, Gearbox has scheduled the release of the downloadable expansion pack "The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned" for November 24th,, which means you'll be able to slaughter mountains of zombies while scarfing plate after plate of Thanksgiving goodies.

In Real People News: 

An 82 year-old woman fends off a pair of robbers using a brush, a bible, and her false teeth. In other news, I'm strangely aroused.

In case you were wondering why Kentucky is the greatest state in the country, a Boone County man was arrested for allegedly masturbating to a wrestling video at the local library. Thanks for making me proud.

Newsflash: If your lovely wife attempts to murder you on three separate occasions, perhaps it's time to file for divorce. I'm just saying.

On this day in history: 

1703 - The mysterious Man in the Iron Mask, a prisoner of Louis XIV, passes away in captivity. To this day, his identity remains a source of much debate.

Tooth & Nail (REVIEW)

Human civilization as we know it is coming to an end. Humanity is dying off, and our formally highly populated cities are being evacuated. Some however have chosen to hang back and start a new life, a new civilization. Such is the case with Darwin, a mild mannered professor with his own plans to rebuild society. Together with his small group of hand picked ‘useful’ survivors, they’ve laid claim to an empty hospital to start their new community. All is peachy keen until the the arrival of the Rovers.

The Broken (REVIEW)

Lena Heady (From TV's The Sarah Connor Chronicles) is a young x-ray technician who has a happy life. She has a good job, a loving family and a caring boyfriend. All seems well and good at the latest family dinner. That night, they are all taken by surprise when the dining room mirror shatters for no reason.

Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations (REVIEW)

Sam Reide and his power of the time stream is back. Some time has passed since the death of his girlfriend in "Butterfly Effect 2" and her killer is set for execution on death row. Only now, Sam is convinced that Lonny may not be the killer. Set on freeing the man he thinks is wrongfully imprisoned, he skips back in the time stream once again merely to observe and get an eye witness account of the events of that fateful night. Only this time Sam manages to change the past, which drastically alters the future once again.

From Within (REVIEW)

A small southern town is plagued by a rash of suicides and no one can figure out the cause, despite the efforts of the local evangelical ministry in town that's investigating. The first suicide to kick off the pattern is the elder of two boys. Their mother has long been known to practice witchcraft, much to the chagrin of the local Christians. They distrusted her so much, that eventually they burn her at the stake. With Aidan being the last of the witch's family line all eyes turn to him when talk of someone to accuse for the plague starts up.

Dying Breed (REVIEW)

Nina's sister set off to the Tasmanian outback eight years ago in search of proof of the elusive Tasmanian Tiger. She never returned. There are rumors other mythical creatures living in Tasmania as well. In 1824, Alexander Pearce, also known as "The Pieman" escaped from the British Penal Colony held upon the island. Pearce was known to be a violent cannibal, proven by the fact that he escaped with seven other prisoners and only he survived, albeit with chunks of human flesh in his pockets.

Autopsy (REVIEW)

A group of twenty-somethings party it up in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Heading home for the night they happen across a man in a hospital robe in the middle of the road. Swerving to avoid him they careen off the road and slam headfirst into a tree. Shaken and banged up, the group of friends mill about aimlessly as they ponder what to do.
