Meet After Dark’s ‘Children of Sorrow’


After Dark Films recently announced the fourth film in its After Dark Originals 2 series, Children of Sorrow, which we now have four brand new stills from.

The film is said to deliver a petrifying look into a cult psyche, Children of Sorrow is directed by Jourdan McClure (Rogue River, Die Maniacs Die!), written by Ryan Finnerty (Rogue River, Smosh), starring Bill Oberst Jr (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, Take this Lollipop) and Hannah Levien (The Palace Players).

Simon Leach is a very, very sick man. Thriving on despair, pain, and panic, he unites a group of broken and desperate people in the middle of the desert. He showers them with the love and affection they’re so desperate for, but Simon has a much greater plan for his followers.

“Belongingness can be a terrifying subject, even more so when acceptance is disingenuous. Children of Sorrow is the nightmare version of that,” said McClure.
