Back in May of last year we learned that After Dark Originals scooped up Jourdan McClure's unsettling horror feature CHILDREN OF SORROW, which stars the always awesome Bill Oberst, Jr. and racked up multiple festival wins at the Sacramento Horror Film Festival and Hollywood's Shockfest Film Festival. We followed up that bit o'news with a handful of stills from the flick in June and have waited patiently for news as to when we will finally be able to check the flick out. Today we not only learn when CHILDREN OF SORROW will be arriving on DVD, Digital HD and VOD, but we've got a new trailer to share with ya below!

Lionsgate has announced a March 4 release date for CHILDREN OF SORROW and we've got your first look at the DVD artwork as well as a terrifying new trailer below. As a fan of Oberst, Jr.'s work I'll be damned sure to be checking this one out and I think the trailer will sell it for many of you, as well.

Simon Leach is a very, very sick man. Thriving on despair, pain, and panic, he unites a group of broken and desperate people in the middle of the desert. He showers them with the love and affection they're so desperate for, but Simon has a much greater plan for his followers. "Belongingness" can be a terrifying subject, even more so when acceptance is disingenuous. Children of Sorrow is the nightmare version of that. A young woman embeds herself in a cult looking for answers to her sister's disappearance, only to find a dark secret within the cult and an even darker secret within herself.

A film that delivers a petrifying look into a cult psyche, CHILDREN OF SORROW is directed by Jourdan McClure, written by Ryan Finnerty, and stars Bill Oberst, Jr. and Hannah Levien. You can pre-order the DVD HERE.

Extra Tidbit: Will you be checking this one out on DVD or VOD in March?

Tentatively, I look forward to Children of Sorrow. On one hand, CoS is found-footage from a small studio. After Dark Originals released recently Ritual. Ritual was pretty good, but it obviously took many cost-saving measures that affected the film's overall quality. Children of Sorrow could another one that holds back on the thrills for the sake of budget. I do not want to simply see actors acting scared and nervous. Show me some spectacle.
On the other hand, I enjoy After Dark pictures

On the other hand, I enjoy After Dark pictures consistently. Unlike other studios, their B-movies, their DTV offerings, are almost always at least good. To some extent, After Dark is this decade's Full Moon. Children of Sorrow has a cult leader for its main villain. Cults are real. Therefore, cults are automatically scary. Exploitation of young people is real. Therefore, CoS's exploitation is scary. The film has the right elements to real shock, disturb, provoke, and entertain. Who can say? We might even get something like the cult segment in V/H/S 2. Everyone is talking about the suspense and creepiness of that one. And, it was found-footage. And, it certainly had hella-spectacle at the end of the tale.
