Coming this Weekend: After Dark Horrorfest 5
I'm usually able to say ahead of things when it comes to upcoming horror film releases, but this one really blindsided me: In select theaters this upcoming weekend, After Dark Horrorfest 5 will be showing eight never-before-seen horror films.
I'm used to hearing about After Dark Horrorfests happening in October, so to have one happening in January is a bit surprising. Even though After Dark has showcased horror films with a wide degree of quality over the years, it nevertheless has found some great films that probably would never have been on the big screen any other way. Previous entries that are definitely worth a second look include The Abandoned and The Broken; from this year's selections, Husk looks to be very promising.
Check out the After Dark Horrorfest site and Facebook page for more details about this weekend's event and which theaters will be participating. Beyond Hollywood also has some information about this year's selection of films, including a few of their trailers.
