Matchbox Films have announced the UK DVD release of Ryan Smith’s award winning sci-fi thriller After starring Karolina Wydra (“True Blood”) and Steven Strait (10,000 Years BC) with a street date of May 26.

In this ‘Twilight Zone’-esque tale of the afterlife, two bus crash survivors wake from a coma to discover that they are the only inhabitants of a small American town. Scarier still, a monstrous cloud is swallowing the area, closing in on them slowly but surely. Are they dead? In an alternate dimension or is it all a dream? As the couple scavenge houses and attempt to find a way out, they soon learn that they are not alone. Inside the mist are ravenous creatures hell bent on preventing their escape.

After received its UK premiere at FrightFest and London Sci-Fi Film Festival before traveling the world festival circuit where it picked up several awards including Best Special Effects at Fancine Malaga. The Canadian release is scheduled for May 13th through Mongrel Media with US distribution penciled for July.

    Seems very heavily influenced by the film version and the overall basic premise of the ‘Silent Hill’ series – but not necessarily in a bad way. It look like it may be a bit derivative, but it also looks to be interesting enough to be worthy of viewing. I’ll add this one to the upcoming movies I intent to see.

    i agree, this seems SILENT HILL-ish but not anywhere near as well done (from the looks of it). i like Steven Strait (liked him a lot in THE COVENANT) so i’ll check this one out.
