All the Horrorfest titles have been finalized, now we know exactly what films are going to
be played at this year's After Dark Horrorfest. Las time we told you that LAKE DEAD was
on board, now we've heard that CRAZY EIGHTS has been added to the lineup. Thus
making it the "8 Films to Die For." CRAZY EIGHTS will be shown next month alongside THE
DEATHS OF IAN STONE, NIGHTMARE MAN (
review), UNEARTHED, FRONTIERS,
BORDERLAND, MULBERRY STREET, LAKE DEAD and TOOTH AND NAIL. CRAZY EIGHTS
revolves around six friends that reunite after 20 years at a mutual childhood friend's
funeral. A search through their deceased friend's house reveals a map to a time capsule
they buried some twenty years earlier which spurs the friends to find it and dig it up. After
uncovering the trunk, the unexpected is found...the rotted remains of a child. A child from
a past they've long forgotten, a child that begins to haunt their every waking moment and
makes them question who they really are.

The closer they come to remembering the circumstances of the mysterious child's death,
the closer they come to their own reckoning. The memory that will eventually kill them one
by one is the same memory they need to discover to stay alive. Directed by James K.
Jones, the film stars Traci Lords, Dina Meyer, George Newbern, Gabrielle Anwar, Dan
Deluca and Frank Whaley. After Dark films is gearing up for Horrorfest 2. On
