After Dark Films CEO Courtney Solomon has once again planted terror into the hearts of horror fans. Husk, the sixth chilling feature film as part of the After Dark Originals is a gruesome tale written and directed by Brett Simmons (Mark of Love) based on Simmons’ short film of the same name. The film stars Wes Chatham (The Unit, In the Valley of Elah), C.J. Thomason (The Big Bank Theory), and Devon Graye (Scar 3D and Showtime’s Dexter).
When a murder of crows smash into the windshield causing their car to crash, the group of young friends, inside, are forced to abandon the vehicle. Stranded beside a desolate cornfield, they see a light on in a window and decide to go in search of help. They head into the fields but instead of finding sanctuary they discover something evil and unnatural lurking in the corn.
“Think classic original horror films when you think of Husk,” says Solomon. “This film is a real throwback to that time; the true 1960s creepiness, a nerve-wracking suspenseful script, and real character development.”
Husk, from Executive Producers Limor Diamant, Allen Zeman, & Stephanie Caleb, and Producer Courtney Solomon, was shot in Iowa and is currently in post-production. Release date for Husk and all eight Originals is scheduled for January 2011. The series was developed in partnership with Lionsgate.
