After Dark Horrorfest
Directed by Various
In lieu of listing all seven movies coming out as part of the After Dark Horrorfest set, I thought it’d just make more sense to point out the entire box set. In case you weren't a huge fan of all the films, it’s good that they’re being released separately as well. Included in this box are Unrest, Wicked Little Things, The Gravedancers, Reincarnation, The Hamiltons, Dark Ride and Penny Dreadful.
Albert Fish (2006)
Directed by John Borowski
Here’s a serial killer who, to this point, had not yet had a movie made about him, though something tells me that’s going to change now that there’s one out. From the same guy who did the intriguing film H. H. Holmes: America's First Serial Killer comes the tale of Albert Fish, a Depression-era killer who lured children to their deaths utilizing torture a sadomasochism. If it’s anything like H. H. Holmes, then it’s got more style than most, so be sure to check it out!
Cinema of Death
Directed by Various
A compilation of some of the more extreme films in the last few years, or so says Cult Epics, the company releasing this set. Inside are five films from various directors exploring the extreme sides of human nature, be it murder or betrayal, with a mixture of themes and ideas. To be honest, some of the film descriptions sound interesting, but something tells me it might be a lot more indie than it comes across. Find out for yourself, and then let us know!
The Eden Formula (2006)
Directed by John Carl Buechler
My God, folks, Jeff Fahey is back! And he’s fighting freakin’ dinosaurs! He plays a doctor who develops a technology that can reproduce any type of organism, and unbeknownst to him, someone has used it to make a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Now if that doesn’t sound like a plotline directly out of straight-to-video titles from the 80’s, I don’t know what does. And if nothing else it’s got Jeff fucking Fahey in it! And Dee Wallace Stone!
Directed by Jonathan Yudis
You know when you really just want some time away from your regular life, to go somewhere you can concentrate and get things in perspective? James is lucky enough to have a place like that, the desert ranch of his father. Unfortunately for his down time, though, James soon realizes that his father is a psychotic madman. Sounds pretty straightforward, but I really think it’s anything but.
