Why the hell am I reviewing a film that was released in 2001? I’d ask the same question if the producer didn’t explain that this movie is now getting the release it solely deserved-almost 10 years later. The director had some hard times tryin’ to get the film out to a larger audience, and to no avail. So steps up producer Charles Mariotti to save the day-hence me coming in to do the job that I love to do, review these indie soaked movies.
OK, this is quite a simple film really. John (Corey Feldman) is havin’ a party with a bunch of his buddies- a little drinkin’, a little smokin’. Then……… they all gang up on him to tell them the story, or should I say, the spirtual adventure he had when him and his brother were younger. “Let’s have a Seance John” they keep pestering him with so Aater repeated tormenting from his buds, he falls prey to their ridicule and sets up a seance to bring back the soul that once abused their innocent lives. John calls on the boy who tormented him……………… and his brother to no humanity………to show himself………talk to them……… ssssshhhhhhow them signs. Candles blow, serious warps ensue and then they fantasticly transported within the same dimension, just somewhere else to witness a butchery in progress, some serious bloodshed. They snap out of it…….. back to reality, and try to go on their day to day after that? Good fuckin luck. So the story goes from one friend to another, dying horribly in CGI styled deaths. So pretty much there ya go in a handbag, what else happens during the film is up to you to watch. I hate spoilers and I will not let you in on anything other than the basics gist ya dig! So screw you.
A pretty average plotline and all, overacted characters, halarious CG work (I didn’t realize it was 2001 till after so now I get the era of graphics), and Corey Feldman in the dramatic role of a lifetime. So having the biggest crush on the Cory’s back in the day, Licence to Drive honey, it was fun to watch the thrillride of manslaughter with they ole’ Felder himself. I wouldn’t really call it a serious film, it tries to be, but 10 years later it doesn’t really matter. Just watch the damn thing.

Los Angeles, CA (November 15, 2010) — 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
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.
After Dark Films made an unprecedented commitment to the production of eight original horror
films this year under the After Dark Originals label, continuing the Company’s mantra of
supporting first time independent film writers and directors. The creation of the AD Originals
(www.afterdarkoriginals.com) 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, and vengeful ghosts to psychological trauma, murderous
psychopaths, vampires and the undead. After Dark polled its fans and is delivering the kinds of
