After Dark Films Releases New Zombie Film
For Immediate Release:
Los Angeles, CA — After Dark Films CEO Courtney Solomon announced the newest zombie feature, RE-KILL, written by Mike Hurst (Hardwired, Ninja) and directed by Val Milev. Roger Cross (The Day The Earth Stood Still), Jesse Garcia (Quinceanera), and Daniella Alonso (Wrong Turn 2, The Hills Have Eyes II) star. The film, produced as part of the AFTER DARK ORIGINALS “A New Brand of Fear” series, was originally intended for release in this year’s January 28th theatrical festival, but producers say RE-KILL has shown so much promise that it is being pulled from the festival, and will most likely enjoy a wider theatrical release, on it’s own, later this year.
Solomon said, “The original reason we made these films was to give filmmakers a chance to shine while participating in the “Originals” film festival. By making a great film they open the door giving that film a chance to be released on a wider basis. It’s only a good thing for everyone if this happens”.
RE-KILL, from Producer Courtney Solomon, and Executive Producers Stephanie Caleb, Allan Zeman and Moshe Diamont was shot in Bulgaria and is currently in post-production. The remaining After Dark Originals Films, Prowl, Seconds Apart, Fertile Ground, The Task and Husk will all be released theatrically on Friday January 28th in the following cities and theatres:

After Dark Films made an unprecedented commitment to the production of eight original horror films under the After Dark Originals label, continuing the Company’s mantra of supporting first time independent film writers and directors. The creation of the After Dark Originals 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 (www.afterdarkoriginals.com) are wholly financed and produced by After Dark Films. The ADO slate runs the gamut of the genre, from paranormal phenomena, black magic, space aliens 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!

Founded in 2006 by film producer/director/writer Courtney Solomon and real estate and textile financier Allan Zeman, After Dark Films is a leader in independent film finance, production and acquisition of genre films for theatrical release.
After Dark is perhaps best known for its creation and execution of After Dark Horrorfest® – 8 Films to Die For® (www.horrorfestonline.com). Debuting in 2006, After Dark Horrorfest ® is a one week national film festival that celebrates all areas of the horror genre. In its first year, Horrorfest became the first film festival in history to break into the Top 10 at the national box office, grossing over $2.5 million Additionally, it reached great success with over 1.6 million DVDs currently in circulation through distribution partner Lionsgate.
After Dark’s initial film release was the box office success An American Haunting (2006), written, directed and produced by Courtney Solomon. An American Haunting opened at the #2 spot in the nation, and maintained its position for four weeks. Subsequent releases include The Abandoned; Skinwalkers, starring Jason Behr, Rhona Mitra and Matthew Knight; Captivity, starring Elisha Cuthbert and directed by Oscar-nominee Roland Joffe (The Killing Fields), and Frontier(s), directed by Xavier Gens (Hitman). Building upon the success of Horrorfest®, After Dark Films has developed a second series in partnership with Syfy and Lionsgate entitled, After Dark Originals “A New Brand of Fear”. The series is set to debut in late January, 2011.
