Product Description

All 8 films of the 4th installment of After Dark Horrorfest in one gift set. Films include Dread, The Final, The Graves, Hidden, Kill Theory, Lake Mungo, The Reeds, and Zombies of Mass Destruction.

Amazon.com

Eight new independent visions of terror await genre fans with the fourth go-round of the annual After Dark Horrorfest series. As devotees have discovered from past festivals, the Horrorfest lineup is usually hit or miss, with at least one standout and a few genuine dogs. The 2010 edition is no exception: depending on your taste for terror, the highlight will either be Dread, a fairly harrowing if thinly dramatized take on producer Clive Barker's short story about a college project about fear going terribly awry, or Lake Mungo, a bloodless but genuinely chilling ghost story done in a convincing documentary format. Norway's Hidden also eschews gore for atmosphere; its glacial pace may put off some viewers, but the patient will find subtle scares in its tale of a troubled homecoming overshadowed by murders. If it's body counts you're looking for, Kill Theory and The Final have them in spades--you'll just have to put up with heavy-handed proselytizing in the former (and some truly ugly scenes) and shopworn characters in the latter. Overly familiar plotting and personas also undo the UK import The Reeds, a sluggish thriller that pits boaters against killer strays, and Zombies of Mass Destruction, a broad political comedy that takes potshots at lame-duck conservative targets. Of course, for some, the horror movie is pure popcorn material, best enjoyed at top volume with the rowdiest of audiences, and comic book writer-creator Brian (Evil Ernie) Pulido's debut feature The Graves delivers exactly that in its B-movie bouillabaisse of nubile heroines, crazed killers (among them Bill Moseley of The Devil's Rejects and Candyman's Tony Todd), and cursed towns.

Extras are fairly light throughout the set: a smattering of discs offer deleted or alternate scenes, while others offer nothing at all. Ironically, the two weakest films (The Final and The Graves) have the most supplemental features, including not one but two commentary tracks for The Graves. Clive Barker fans might find some nuggets of interest in his conversation with Dread director Anthony DiBlasi on that disc. --Paul Gaita

SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM FOR MY FULL REVIEW OF "THE REEDS" - for some reason, the entire Afterdark set and THE REEDS are linked, so I have to put both reviews together . . .

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AFTERDARK HORRORFEST COLLECTION - YEAR 4

For the fourth year running, the Afterdark Horrorfest (AKA "8 Films To Die For") throws eight movies our way and says, "WATCH THESE!" Originally billed as "too terrifying for mainstream release," I think the cat is pretty much out of the bag by now that these are more like, "too lackluster for mainstream release . . ."

But, mean-spiritedness aside, I actually thought this year was a step up after the last two years. While none of these best some of the better films from years past (such as THE ABANDONED, BORDERLAND, or FROM WITHIN) - I would still say that overall, these were each interesting at least in some way, and with one or two exceptions, seemed to be much higher level productions.

As always, the question is whether I would like these outside of the festival circuit - would any of these warrant independent release? Of the eight, I would say KILL THEORY probably would have the best chance of theatrical success, if only for its SAW-esque plot. Also, LAKE MUNGO follows in the footsteps of recent "reality" horror films like PARANORMAL ACTIVITY And QUARANTINE.

But the others, while in same cases better than these two, probably wouldn't do well by virtue of having the stigma of being indie horror, or foreign film - two things that don't play that well in American theaters. But I digress . . . let's look at them one by one, from least to greatest . . .

8) THE GRAVES: No question this is the loser of the bunch.

Kill Theory: This is an above average slasher, with a sort of "Saw" flavoring (though nowhere near as gory). A group of graduating college kids holed up in a cabin are told only one of them can survive till the morning or they'll all be killed. The rare slasher where the character development actually pays off.

The Graves: Mal-direction and less-than-tight editing make the actors look bad (even Tony Todd!) in this "Texas Chainsaw" meets "The Devil's Rain" story. Two girls are stalked by maniacs in mining town, then by crazy culty townsfolk. Standout performance by Bill Moseley. The Grave sisters themselves are easy on the eyes and had good chemistry. Marred by run-of-the-mill-ishness and some unbelievably bad choices.

Zombies of Mass Destruction: Sharp, funny, campy, gory, and fast-paced for the first two thirds. A Persian-American woman and a gay couple return to their hometown in time for a zombie invasion. Very left politically, but okay until political bent takes over last third, when movie bogs down with torture scenes, and a church confrontation. With "Dread", Best in Show.

Hidden (Skjult): Broody Norwegian film about a crazy guy who goes back to childhood home and the bodies start stacking up. Is he doing it? Or is it the changeling who he left to his abusive mothers' devices on the night he escaped? Almost had me believing it wasn't going to end in the obvious way.

Dread: Clive Barker produces first-time director Anthony diBlasi in this tense adapation of Barker's short. Little boy Quaid sees his parents murdered with an axe and grows up with nightmares--fear of the axe murderer's return.

"Dread" is so creeeeeee-py..... If you love horror, and I do, this collection is worth the price for the inclusion of two films: "Dread" and "Lake Mungo," both brilliant works of horror.

"Dread" is a cold slap in the face and will leave you a little breathless. It has one of the scariest endings I've ever seen. I caught this film on Netflix right before it blinked off the streaming queue, and then proceeded to think intensely about the darned film for weeks. I bought this collection just to relieve the itch I felt to watch it again, analyze it further.

"Lake Mungo" was a great "WTF" movie. The pacing is slow, so stick wiith it. And if you don't like documentary style horror, you might have a hard time liking this one. But, if you watch this movie, you will be rewarded with one of the best endings you've ever seen. The storyline of this film is so complex, and told in reverse, so you really have no idea what is going on until the very last moment. At that moment, everything falls together so perfectly, I actually got goosebumps. And the concept of the horror (theme) in this one is kind of existential, in that the fear inherent to the piece plagues to us all. Very artsy stuff and I can see why it was included in After Dark. Enjoy!

The movies on here are average To Die For fare except for one...Lake Mungo. The movie is a classic on its own in the horror genre and really does not fit well into the To Die For category. It is for mature thinking individuals and delivers an incredibly involving and building tale. The climax is chilling at the least. As for the rest of the films, I have forgotten most of them.
