Save for Frontiere(s), the French torture porn-y flick deemed "too graphic for theaters," I have never been too fond of the After Dark Film Fest, the January-based horror festival that gives horror fans a chance to see eight new flicks over the course of a weekend. Most of the films are relatively lackluster and barely worth a mention, while the others are so epically bad some of the words I use to describe them are merely portmanteau's of other filthy words. But I digress.

Until now only seven films have been announced for the popular horror festival, which is set to hit theaters on January 29th. Among these are Zombies of Mass Destruction, a review of which can be found here; Clive Barker's Dread, which screened at Fantastic Fest; and Lake Mungo, which despite a ridiculous name, looks pretty excellent. Dread Central, however, is now reporting that Kill Theory has been announced as the eighth and final film. From the After Dark website:

Are you capable of the unthinkable? That's the question seven college students face when they visit a secluded vacation home to celebrate graduation and are put to a horrific test by a mysterious killer. By 6 am the following morning, only one of them can remain alive. Whoever that person is will be allowed to walk away with his or her life.

However, if morning comes and more than one is still breathing, everyone dies. Trapped in a deadly game, they're forced to kill one another in order to survive. Friends and couples must test their trust, and as the clock ticks away: alliances form, tension escalates, and hope begins to fade. Some will fight for love, some to survive, but all will change. Because deep down... we're all killers.

I have high hopes for this year's line-up, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. Trailer resides after the jump.
