The line-up is complete. After Dark Films CEO Courtney Solomon has announced that After Dark has acquired the Korean horror title Voices after inking a deal with Ludo Cremers and Jesus DiSica of 24-Frames. The film, first reported last year here on Shock under the title Someone Behind You, is based on the comic book by Kang Kyung-ok.
Voices marks the eighth and final film for After Darkâ€™s third installment of Horrorfest: 8 Films to Die For beginning January 9th. Ki-hwan Oh (Art of Seduction) directed the psychological horror film which stars Jin-seo Yun (The Moonlight of Seoul), Ki-Woo Lee (Crazy Waiting) and Gi-woong Park. It was produced by Moo Ryung Kim (Memories of Murder).
The story tells of a young woman who believes she is cursed after having many of her family and friends die in the most brutal ways imaginable. She must discover the mystery behind these killings before she too becomes a victim.
"I was blown away by the film," says Solomon. "When I look at non-English speaking films for our Horrorfest series, they are scrutinized more heavily because we need to make sure the mainstream horror audience is going to enjoy them. I think it's safe to say that we've found a film that is gorgeous, intriguing and has a ton of crossover appeal. I couldnâ€™t be more pleased."
The latest horror entry to hail from Asia and participate in Horrorfest was Takashi Shimizu's Reincarnation. Voices joins the previously announced Autopsy, The Broken, The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations, Dying Breed, From Within, Perkins' 14 and Slaughter.
Dana Lambert, VP of Acquisitions at After Dark, brokered the deal with President, Ludo Cremers and Director of Development and Acquisitions, Jesus DiSica of 24-Frames.
"Voices is based on a best-selling comic book series and cleverly exploits the paranoid belief that those dearest to you may want you dead," says Ludo Cremers, President of 24 frames. "The spectacular cinematography combined with the relentless visceral thrills will give gore fans plenty of eye candy. We are delighted to collaborate with After Dark in bringing this must see, edge of your seat horror film to American fans of the genre."
