It has been a while since we’ve seen anything from the After Dark Horrorfest, but apparently it’s back. And hey, remember that Re-Kill movie that was supposed to be released several years ago? Well apparently we’ll be seeing that as part of this year’s 8 Films To Die For series in October. Today, After Dark Films released the details for another film from the lineup, titled Lumberjack Man. This is the first time I’m even hearing of the title, so you know as much as I do. Based on the theatrical poster and the official synopsis, Lumberjack Man is clearly a Friday the 13th clone, but one that does look interesting on paper. You can view the trailer below to judge for yourself, but in my opinion, if the second most recognizable name featured in your cast is Adam Sessler, and your big name celebrity is Michael Madsen, well, good luck. Look for Lumberjack Man, Re-Kill, and the rest of this year’s 8 Films To Die For on October 16th.
Los Angeles, CA (August 11, 2015) – The next film in Courtney Solomon’s After Dark Films ‘8 Films to Die For’is serving up a killer plot. Lumberjack Man will chop his way into the 4th spot of the lineup, in theaters October 16, 2015.
Directed by Josh Bear, produced by Bill Muehl, with story by Josh Bear and Bill Muehl, and screenplay by Ed Kuehnel and Matt Entin, Lumberjack Man will add comedic relief to the newly revived, terrifying collection.
“This film has all the right toppings to make up a perfectly frightful feast,” says Stephanie Caleb, EVP, Creative Affairs & Acquisitions, “There’s gore, there’s suspense, there’s spring breakers at church camp, and bloody good pancakes for breakfast.”
The film stars Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill: Vol. 1), Alex Dobrenko (Bloody Homecoming), Ciara Flynn (Replica 114), Chase Joliet (Zombex), and Adam Sessler (X-Play). The deal was negotiated on behalf of After Dark Films by Ian Brereton.
“I am very excited to be working with After Dark Films on the release of Lumberjack Man here in the US, and that horror fans will be able to experience the creation of a new icon in this fantastic genre,” says Josh Bear, director of the film and co-founder of Madisonian Films.
As the staff of Good Friends Church Camp prepares for a spring break filled with “Fun Under the Son”, a demon logger rises from his sap boiler to wreak his vengeance and feast on flapjacks soaked in the blood of his victims.
‘8 Films to Die For’ will be released in theaters on October 16, 2015, with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment handling all ancillary forms of media, including Digital HD™, DVD and VOD.
