Movie Info

Quaid, a student of philosophy, is obsessed by his own nightmare of an ax-murdering clown so he concocts a series of experiments to observe firsthand how other people react to the things that most horrify them. But while Quaid slowly unpeels the psyches of his imprisoned and tortured captives like a reeking onion, his own dread waits, just beyond his control.

A bit too concerned with gore to really grapple with the concept of dread, but too full of dialogue to be genuinely thrilling

A horror flick that saves the shocks for the end. It's not soon enough. Paul Chambers, CNN.

It is a film very much about its own audience, confronting us all with the insatiable sadism and voyeurism of those who seek to dispel their own innermost fears vicariously.

A clever balancing act between basic scares, a creepy concept, and something a little more (dare I say) cerebral.

Audience Reviews for After Dark Horrorfest: Dread

Jackson Rathbone, Shaun Evans, Hanne Steen, Laura Donnelly

DIRECTED BY: Anthony DiBlasi

Quaid, a student of philosophy, is obsessed by his own nightmare of an ax-murderer so he concocts a series of experiments to observe firsthand how other people react to the things that most horrify them. But while Quaid slowly unpeels the psyches of his imprisoned and tortured captives like a reeking onion, his own dread waits, just beyond his control.

Based on the Clive Barker short story, Dread. This is an experiment gone horribly wrong. Quaid not being satisfied with the outcome of their project decides to take it a bit further. Well a lot further. He decides to make these aquintances who have shared their fears live them out. It's really disturbing and gruesome in some parts. The first half of the movie moves a bit slow but it is on purpose to build up the characters and their stories. When it does pick up, it starts getting really good. The four leads are surprisingly very good in this film. They give strong emotional performances. First time seeing some of them in a film, besides Rathbone who I have only seen in the Twilight Saga films. Which I might add he doesn't do much acting in. So it was nice to see him in something he has more then just 3 or 4 lines in. I thought he was really good and will look for other films of his. But overall this movie wasn't so much scary as it was very dark and twisted. This isn't your normal horror flick. This is your more bone chilling, creepy, and killer obsessive movie. This movie has really good directing as well. Liked the close up scenes of the where it shows Quaids family being done away with, and the axe thuding against the stairwell. Just creepy. Very well done film. More should see it.
