Following the success of last year’s After Dark Horrorfest, Lionsgate presents a new terrifying collection of DVDs with all eight films from the most recent After Dark Horrorfest 8 Films to Die For event. The DVDs included are Crazy Eights, Nightmare Man, Tooth and Nail, Unearthed, The Deaths of Ian Stone, Mulberry Street and the unrated versions of Lake Dead and Borderland. These films were released in over 300 theaters nationwide that ran throughout the week of November 9-18. Each film was created by today’s hottest and most groundbreaking filmmakers in horror and is considered to be among the most cutting-edge films to have appeared on the big screen. A true celebration of horror at its most wicked; each film will include special features and is available as single DVDs for $19.98 or all together as a DVD Box Set Collection for $159.84 on March 18, 2008.

The films include:

Six people are brought together at the funeral of a childhood friend. While settling the estate, they discover a map, which leads them on a search for a long forgotten time capsule. At the request of their dead friend, they follow the map and what they discover reawakens repressed childhood traumas and leads them on a journey through their long abandoned childhood home…a home with a terrible secret and a mysterious dead girl who will lead them to their strange fates.

An Official Selection of the 2006 Los Angeles Shriekfest, Nightmare Man received critical praise during its theatrical run. The film was declared “a demonic brain-bender” (Fangoria Magazine), a “brilliant gem of independent horror…a cross between Evil Dead and a Halloween episode of “The O.C.” (Jane Magazine) and “a solid whirlwind of a horror movie…a winner (Film Threat). After receiving a mysterious mask, Ellen Morris believes she was attacked by an evil being she calls ‘Nightmare Man’. Her husband thinks she’s crazy. On their way to the mental hospital, they have car trouble. While her husband leaves to get help, Ellen is left alone in the car. When ‘Nightmare Man’ appears, Ellen escapes into the woods, unsure whether she is hallucinating or not. She stumbles upon a cabin filled with friends who unknowingly become prey the moment Ellen steps inside.

Borderland, available on unrated DVD, is a criminal tale of murder and ritual. The story, based on true events, blends the raw fear of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with the stark reality of In Cold Blood and evokes a world soaked in paranoia, fear, and dread. Declared “a brutally suspenseful crime drama” by Variety and “a dark, disturbing gem” by Cinefantastique Magazine, the film features special effects by award-winning KNB Effects. When three Texas University students travel to a Mexican border town on the eve of their graduation, the last thing they expect to face is an ancient blood cult hell-bent on finding candidates for human sacrifice.
