In addition to providing us with the first still, After Dark Films “officially” announced The Task, one of the 8 films playing in this year’s first annual After Dark Originals. Directed by Simon Fellows, and written by Kenny Yakkel (Exorcism Diaries, Dead Air), the flick stars Texas Battle (Final Destination 3), Alexandra Staden (Basic Instinct 2), and Jonas Talkington (Harpies). Below you’ll find the official synopsis and first ever still. For more info on the other 8 films, click here for our After Dark Originals page.
“Something diabolical is taking place on the set of The Task, a new reality show in which players complete terrifying missions within the confines of an abandoned prison hoping to win a hefty cash prize. As six young students explore their new environment, malicious spirits make their presence known in the most gruesome ways imaginable. Unable to escape the labyrinthine prison, the contestants become unwitting pawns caught at the center of a blood-soaked night of terror.”
