Everyone knows that After Dark’s Horrorfest offers audiences eight different films “to die for” every year. Over the last several months, you may have noticed that seven films had been announced for this year’s lineup. If you’re like me, you probably thought the eight-film series was set and ready to go despite seemingly being one film short because The Butterfly Effect 3: *whispers* Revelations really counts as two films.
Frankly, I was a little shocked when Shock Till You Drop confirmed that the Korean horror film Voices had been added to Horrorfest. I just assumed that the sheer magnitude of a third Butterfly Effect movie meant that it was both the seventh and eighth film in After Dark’s third annual Horrorfest. I mean, The Butterfly Effect and horror go together like Nickelback and rock ‘n roll!
I want my fucking Nikon back and there better not be any naked pictures this time.
So, what’s up with this Voices film, you ask? I don’t want to ruin the film for you but there is some shocking information that should be just enough to excite your mind about the possibilities. This is a Korean horror film unlike what we’ve come to expect from Korea, Japan, or other eastern lands. You see, this particular horror film is about…wait for it…a curse!
Dana Lambert, VP of Acquisitions at After Dark, brokered the deal with President, Ludo Cremers and Director of Development and Acquisitions, Jesus DiSica of 24-Frames.
“Voices is based on a best-selling comic book series and cleverly exploits the paranoid belief that those dearest to you may want you dead,” says Ludo Cremers, President of 24 frames. “The spectacular cinematography combined with the relentless visceral thrills will give gore fans plenty of eye candy. We are delighted to collaborate with After Dark in bringing this must see, edge of your seat horror film to American fans of the genre.”
Here is the official lineup for Afer Dark’s Horrorfest:
The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations
