After Dark Films sent us over a press release and some images from their first of 8 Originals they are releasing. It's called Prowl and it sounds pretty cool. The vampire-looking creature is a bit reminiscent of 30 Days of Night, don't you think? Check out the images and the press release which features a synopsis of the film after the jump.
AFTER DARK FILMS ROLLS-OUT NEW SERIES!
PROWL CREEPS CENTER STAGE AS ONE OF EIGHT FILMS IN THE NEW
“AFTER DARK ORIGINALS” SLATE
Los Angeles, CA (March 30, 2010) — After Dark Films CEO Courtney Solomon
announced the first of eight movies in the AFTER DARK ORIGINALS series in
partnership with Lionsgate & Syfy, and in association with Dobre Films. A new take on a classic creature, PROWL is written by Tim Tori (Hysteria, Trespassers) and directed by Patrik Syversen (Manhunt). Bruce Payne (Bernard), Courtney Hope (Amber), and Saxon Trainor (Veronica) star.
"Amber dreams of escaping her small town and persuades her friends to accompany
her apartment-hunting in the big city. When their transportation breaks down, Amber
and friends gratefully accept a ride in the back of a semi. But when the driver refuses to stop and they discover the cargo is cartons of blood, they panic. Soon, panic turns to terror when the truck disgorges into a dark, abandoned warehouse where blood-thirsty creatures learn to hunt human prey, which the friends realize is what they have now become...”
Prowl was Executive Produced by Courtney Solomon and produced by Chris Milburn, Borislav Ranghelov, Lucy Mukerjee, Michael Klein, Christopher D’Elia & Zachary Bryan as a United Kingdom/Bulgarian co-production. Release dates for all eight After Dark Originals are scheduled for Fall, 2010.
"Dobré Films jumped at the opportunity to produce PROWL with a company that has
set the bar for branding and creating unique and great horror films. PROWL and all the new Originals will be a great addition to an already celebrated brand and won't disappoint" states Dobré Films CEO Christopher D'Elia.
The 8 Originals represent After Dark’s unwavering commitment to emerging
writers and directors as the focus of its creative vision. The creation of the
Originals slate is yet another example of After Dark’s belief in the economics and
artistry of independent film production.
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 and supernatural phenomena, to psychological trauma and the undead.
After Dark polled its fans and is delivering the kinds of movies they asked for!
