AFTER DARK FILMS ANNOUNCES SECOND TO LAST FILM FOR HORRORFEST 4

The Reeds joins as #7 in the After Dark Horrorfest 4: 8 Films to Die For® line-up

Los Angeles, CA (December 18, 2009) — THE REEDS, the seventh pick for After Dark Films Horrorfest 4, was announced today by ADF CEO Courtney Solomon. The national film festival opens January 29, 2010, for one-week in 25 markets.

THE REEDS was written by Chris Baker and Simon Sprackling from a story by Chris Baker. Nick Cohen directs a cast of young actors, including Anna Brewster, O.T. Fagbenle, Will Mellor, Danny Caltagirone, Scarlett Johnson and Emma Catherwood. Geoff Bell appears as Mr. Croker. The film was produced by Simon Sprackling, with Charlie Gauvain Co-Producing. Screen East, Silverstream Productions, Altadena Films, Delacheroy Films and DI Dragon financed the picture.

In THE REEDS, a weekend boating trip through the Norfolk Broads becomes a deadly ordeal for six 20-something year old friends who lose their bearings in the vast reedy tidewaters. Chances of escape and hopes for survival diminish as inexplicable forces terrorize the lost and terrified group.

Dana Lambert, VP of Acquisitions at After Dark, brokered the deal with Ildi Toth Davy of Altadena Films.

ADF Exec Stephanie Caleb stated, “We’re thrilled to have acquired Nick Cohen’s latest feature! The cast is terrific, and the seemingly tranquil and scenic setting is anything but!! This isn’t a place you’d want to be lost.”

Producer Simon Sprackling added, “We are surprised and delighted to be signed up for such a prestigious genre showcase and to have the weight of the studio behind us.”

Director Cohen commented, “I am delighted that The Reeds has been selected for the After Dark slate. It is a real privilege to be participating in such an exciting and groundbreaking festival line-up.”
