Dark Sky’s BANSHEE and 51 Get Separate Release!
Some fans were a bit puzzled when Dark Sky Film’s Scream of the Banshee and 51 were removed from the January 28th horrorfest. What had happened? Had these films been pulled from release? Would we ever see them? Well, worst fears were quashed when Dark Sky tossed out a press release, stating:
The first After Dark-Syfy co-production is Scream of the Banshee, starring Lauren Holly NCIS) and Lance Henriksen (Aliens), and is directed by Steven C. Miller (Automaton Transfusion). The second film is 51, starring, Bruce Boxleitner (TRON: Legacy), Jason London (Jason and the Argonauts), Rachel Miner (Guiding Light) and Vanessa Branch (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), and is directed by Jason Connery (The Devil’s Tomb).
After Dark announced today that it will release the two films on their own later in the year, and separate from the After Dark Originals festival which hits selected theaters around the country on January 28th this year.
We believe this suggest that they have significant confidence in these features. Or, long story short, they think these films are good!
