“UNNATURAL”, “BASTARD” and More Join After Dark’s 8 Films To Die For


Following the announcement that After Dark Films would be bringing back their trademark “8 Films to Die For” with 20th Century Fox, the past few weeks have been quite interesting as independent fright flicks find their way into the trusted program. So far, After Dark has added the zombie action thriller RE-KILL, the experimental mystery MURDER IN THE DARK, the haunting tale THE WICKED WITHIN,  slasher throwback LUMBERJACK MAN and the domestic thriller SUSPENSION, and now they’ve announced two more titles to join the fray: Hank Braxton’s UNNATURAL and Powell Robinson & Patrick Robert Young’s BASTARD!

Braxton’s UNNATURAL, which we’ve previously covered here at FANGORIA.com, stars genre vets James Remar, Sherilyn Fenn and Ray Wise as well as Graham Greene, Stephanie Hodes, Q’orianka Kilcher, Ivana Korab and Allegra Carpenter. For the unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis and poster for the film, which was added at the sixth Film to Die For…

A morally ambiguous corporation experiments with genetic modification resulting in the creation of a man-hunting creature. When it escapes, a group of unsuspecting cabin dwellers become its prey in a horrifying game of cat and mouse. 


Meanwhile, the seventh Film to Die For, BASTARD, stars Tonya Kay, Rebekah Kennedy, Burt Culver, Ellis Greer, Dan Creed, and Will Tranfo, and here’s the official synopsis and poster for the retro horror flick…

Five strangers – newlywed serial killers, a suicidal cop, and two runaways – become suspect and victim when a masked murderer makes its presence known in an isolated mountain town.


The 8 Films to Die For hit theaters on October 16th, with the eighth title yet to be revealed. Check back here at FANGORIA.com for more on After Dark Films!
