From the Press Release:
AFTER DARK FILMS ROLLS-OUT NEW SERIES!
Creeps center stage as one of EIGHT FILMS in the new "AFTER DARK ORIGINALS" SLATE.
Los Angeles,CA.(March 30,2010) After Dark Films CEO Courtney Solomon announced the first of eight movies in the After Dark Originals series in partnership with Lionsgate and Syfy, and in association with Dobre` Films. A new take on a classic creature, PROWL is written by Tim Tori (Hysteria, Trespassers) and directed by Patrik Syverson (Manhunt). Bruce Payne (Bernard), Courrtney Hope (Amber), and Saxon Trainer (Veronica) star.
"Amber dreams of escaping her small town and persuades her friends to accompany her appartment-hunting in the big city. when their transportation breaks down, Amber and friends gratefully accept a ride in the back of a semi. But whe nthe driver refuses to stop and they discover the cargo is cartons of blood, they panic. Soon, panic turns to terror when the truck disgorges into a dark, abandoned warehouse where blood-thirsty creatures learn to hunt human prey, which the friends realize is what they have now become."
Prowl was executive produced by Produced by Courtney Solomon and produced by Chris Milburn, Borislav Ranghelov, Lucy Mukerjee, Michael Klein, Christopher D'Elia and Zachery Bryan as a United Kingodm/Bulgerian co-production. Release dates for all eight After Dark Originals are scheduled for Fall, 2010.
"Dobre` Films jumped at the opportunity to produce PROWL with a company that has set the bar for branding and creating unique and great horror films. PROWL and all the new Originals will be a great addition to an already celebrated brand and wont dissapoint" state Dobre` Films CEO Christopher D'Elia.
The 8 Originals represent After Dark's unwavering commitment to emerging writers and directors as the focus of its creative vision. The creation of the Originals slate is yet another example of After Dark's belief in the economics and artistry of Independent film production.
Unlike After Dark's "8 films To Die For", After Dark Originals are wholly financed and produced by After Dark Films. The ADO slate runs the gamut of the genre, from paranormal and supernatural phenomena, to psychological trauma and the undead. After Dark polled its fans and is delivering thekinds of movies they asked for!
