After Dark Films have begun announcing their new installment of films, “After Dark Originals 2″. A new wave of films targeted to hit theaters this year. First up is Dark Circles, starring Pell James (The Lincoln Lawyer, Zodiac) and Jonathan Schaech (The Doom Generation, Prom Night,Quarantine).
The film is written and directed by Paul Soter, a key member Broken Lizard who performed in (and co-wrote), films like Beerfest, Super Troopers, The Slammin’ Salmon and the horror-comedy Club Dread.
In the film, “When new parents Alex and Penny retreat from the city and move into a place outside town, the stress and massive sleep-deprivation caused by their infant has both of them seeing things in the house that may or may not exist. Persistent sightings of a strange woman has each of them wondering if they are suffering from hallucinations, or if their new home holds a dark, supernatural presence. As their fragile grasp on reality spirals into delirium, Alex and Penny find themselves nearly helpless to deal with the horrific truth of what is really going in this house.”
The press release has a quote from Soter, “Hopefully this will serve as some kind of cinematic equivalent of birth control.” But if you want to hear more about the film from him be sure to check out the exclusive interview we posted back in November.
