After Dark Horrorfest 4 (Trailers)

Will any of these 8 movies actually be good? After watching 7 of the 8 movies from Horrorfest 3, I can say all of them were scratch your eyeballs bad. The shit I went through after seeing Perkins 14 summarizes this at its worst.

But 2010 is a new year and we have a new batch of movies. So like I did before, I've posted as many of the trailers I could find for all the movies below. Also included are my thoughts on each of them solely based on the trailer.

Which of these do you think might actually be worth forking over a few bucks to see? I say none of them but that's the jaded viewer in me.

1.) Zombies of Mass Destruction

the jaded viewer says: Really? A political zomedy? Umm..err..I thought the zombie genre died in 2009? Could be like Dance of the Dead, could be utter crap. I'd go with the latter.

2.) The Reeds

the jaded viewer says: Oversexed teens vacation turned into survivor horror. ZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Yawn-o-rama.

3.) The Final

the jaded viewer says: The Breakfast Club meets torture porn. That was inevitable. Do high school teenagers even bully anymore? I mean when you see shit like this, I'd be scared out of my mind. Could be yay, more than likely it will be nay.

4.) Hidden aka Skjult

the jaded viewer says: I don't even know what they're saying and I can tell this is gonna suck. Oooh crazy images mixed with fancy editing and tons of bass. This is Norwegian (I think After Dark got this because they thought this might be Dead Snow 2)

5.) Dread

the jaded viewer says: You think the Twilight tweens will come en masse to see this because somebody from that flick is in it? OMG, this looks like MTV produced web series like crap. Oooh what's your fear? My fear is I'll accidentally see this. This looks like the worst of the lineup.

6.) Lake Mungo

the jaded viewer says: Making sure they are not left off of the Paranormal Activity bandwagon, After Dark picks up Lake Mungo. Yuppers folks. It's a faux documentary about ghosts and paranormal blah blah blah. Sometimes its too late to catch the wake of the shaky camp ghost flicks. Too little, too late Lake Mungo. WTF is a Mungo?

7.) The Graves

the jaded viewer says: Hot girls, road trip, evil possessed town, Bill Moseley and Tony Todd. Oh sure it looks like it might be good. It looks yummy but when you bite into it it's gonna taste like feces. From the trailer, this might actually be the best of all the flicks. But I've been wrong so many times. I can't tell anymore.

8.) TBD

To be announced

OK horror minions. Is there even one film in these 7 flicks so far that might be worth seeing? In any case, head over to the official After Dark Horrorfest site for more plot summaries and stills. They've also got a Facebook, MySpace and a Twitter pages.

After Dark Horrorfest will be in theaters from January 29, 2010 to February 4, 2010.


  1. Speaking of jaded, I'm so jaded when it comes to these After Dark movies!

  2. Who peed in your Cheerios? :) J/K

    I think Lake Mungo looks pretty good and from what I've heard from advance reviews, its nothing short of amazing. The Reeds and The Final look fairly entertaining. And I'll only be seeing The Graves because some dude from my favorite metal band is in it.

    OK, that makes 3 out of 7 movies potentially decent. Not a good ratio.

  3. ZMD has gay characters, this alone forces me to watch it, even though it looks crap. I've seen Dread and it enjoyable, miserable though, I liked it.

  4. POT - When I went to see Perkins 14 (read about it here) last year...it was the worst theater going experience I've ever had and that ruined all After Dark Horrorfests for me.

    B-Sol - I saw how mentioned the Perkins 14 poster was very misleading..it mislead me!

    Zac - Well I'm bound to check out one of these flicks...maybe Dread is the one to see.

  5. Every one of these movies should be as good as all of the ones before,Why or how can you have any opinions,if your blind? Maybe you watch your movies in brail

  6. Yes I am watching movies in brail. I have no eyes so I watch movies with my ears.

  7. And yes I see you talk out your WHAT?

  8. I hate to point this out...

    but it's "braille".

    JadedViewer, did you get a chance to check any of these out? I watched "The Final" - it was good stuff!

  9. Nope Zac, haven't seen any of these yet. Still checking the reviews and based on that I'll pick a few to see.
