We’ve been hearing about this spooky little gem for a while. The news today is that the release date has finally been revealed, and it’s not too far off. Recently picked up by After Dark Films after a few successful festival runs, Lionsgate Home Entertainment plans a US release for March 4th, 2014 on DVD, Digital HD, and VOD. Fans from Germany can catch CHILDREN OF SORROW at a screening during The Weekend Of Horrors festival in November, later this year.
From The Release:
The film, which director Jourdan McClure describes as “a slice of bad life,” was picked up by After Dark Films after multiple festival wins at the Sacramento Horror Film Festival and Hollywood’s Shockfest Film Festival. Bill Oberst Jr. won a Best Actor Award for his lead role as Simon Leach, a sadistic cult leader. Lionsgate Home Entertainment will release Children Of Sorrow on DVD, Digital HD and VOD on March 4th.
Bill Oberst Jr. says the role of cult leader Simon Leach was “personal and terrifying.” The actor lived in isolation during the shoot in order to get into the mindset of the Jim Jones-like Leach. Director McClure and writer Ryan Finnerty are quoted on the film’s IMDb page as saying that the film’s most disturbing scenes were not in the original screenplay: “We threw most of the script out the window once we got to the desert and rewrote scenes based on the actual personalities of our actors. If it feels real, that may be why.” Children Of Sorrow will screen in November at Europe’s largest horror con, The Weekend Of Horrors in Germany. Here, Oberst will be a celebrity guest.
Now dig on the trailer…
