After Dark Films CEO Courtney Solomon has announced the newest zombie feature, Re-Kill, written by Mike Hurst (Hardwired, Ninja) and directed by Val Milev. Roger Cross (The Day The Earth Stood Still), Jesse Garcia (Quinceanera), and Daniella Alonso (Wrong Turn 2, The Hills Have Eyes II) star. The film, produced as part of the After Dark Originals “A New Brand of Fear” series, was originally intended for release in this year’s January 28th theatrical festival, but producers say Re-Kill has shown so much promise that it is being pulled from the festival, and will most likely enjoy a wider theatrical release, on it’s own, later this year.
Solomon said, “The original reason we made these films was to give filmmakers a chance to shine while participating in the “Originals” film festival. By making a great film they open the door giving that film a chance to be released on a wider basis. It’s only a good thing for everyone if this happens.”
Description: It’s been 5 years since the outbreak that wiped out 85% of the world’s population, but the war between Re-Animates (Re-Ans) and Humans wages on. Most of the major cities are still uninhabitable. Within the few surviving cities, the Re-Ans have been segregated into “zones” and are policed by the R-Division of the QUASI S.W.A.T. Unit who hunt to re-kill the Re-Ans in the hope of quelling a second outbreak.
“R-Division, Frontline” is America’s #1 TV show in this Post-Apocalyptic world. Weekly, the show follows different R-Division units on the battlefield as they work to keep America Safe and Re-An free. Jimmy, the videographer for the Outbreak Network, thought this week’s episode would be like every other. He was wrong. Through the lens of his eyes and camera, we see raw, revealed and uncut, that which could be mankind’s last day.
Re-Kill, from Producer Courtney Solomon, and Executive Producers Stephanie Caleb, Allan Zeman and Moshe Diamont was shot in Bulgaria and is currently in post-production. The remaining After Dark Originals Films, Prowl, Seconds Apart, Fertile Ground, The Task and Husk will all be released theatrically on Friday January 28th in the following cities and theatres:
Atlas Cinemas Diamond Center 16
9555 Diamond Center Dr., Mentor, OH 44060
Showtimes: (440) 352-8822

Here’s the trailer:
After Dark Films made an unprecedented commitment to the production of eight original horror films under the After Dark Originals label, continuing the Company’s mantra of supporting first time independent film writers and directors. The creation of the After Dark Originals slate is just another example of the Company’s commitment to the Indie film industry.
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 phenomena, black magic, space aliens and vengeful ghosts to psychological trauma, murderous psychopaths, vampires and the undead. After Dark polled its fans and is delivering the kinds of movies they asked for.
