Season’s greetings from Horror In Your House. Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays and spending some time with loved ones or at least time away from work. In the world of genre releases it’s another slow week (to be expected), but there are a couple of interesting films anchored by Resident Evil: Afterlife, which is available in 3D Blu-ray along with the standard formats. Also of note is Dying God, which stars Lance Henriksen and if you are like me you will watch anything with Lance, even though his track record of recent is far from great. Check out the rest below and have a Happy New Year!

Dec 27th, 2010
AND SOON THE DARKNESS (Blu-ray/DVD) – Anchor Bay
Stephanie (Amber Heard) and Ellie’s (Odette Yustman) vacation to an exotic village in Argentina is a perfect `girl’s getaway’ to bask in the sun, shop and flirt with the handsome locals. After a long night of bar-hopping, the girls get into an argument, and Stephanie heads out alone in the morning to cool off. But when she returns, Ellie has disappeared. Finding signs of a struggle, Stephanie fears the worst, and turns to the police for help. But the local authorities have their hands full already – with a string of unsolved kidnappings targeting young female tourists. Skeptical of the sheriff’s competency, she enlists help from Michael (Karl Urban), an American ex-pat staying at their hotel. Together they go on a frantic search for Ellie, but Stephanie soon realizes that trusting his seemingly good intentions may drag her farther from the truth. With danger mounting, and time running out, Stephanie must find her friend before darkness falls.
