After Dark Films' CEO Courtney Solomon has unveiled the fifth entry in next year's third annual After Dark Horrorfest and said the event will run from January 2-9, 2009.

Phedon Papamichael's horror tale From Within joins the preliminary 8 Films To Die For line-up following its world premiere at Tribeca last April. The story centres on a bizarre series of suicides that afflicts a small town and stars Elizabeth Rice, Thomas Dekker and Adam Goldberg star along with Rumer Willis in a featured role.

After Dark's vice president of acquisitions Dana Lambert brokered the deal with Cinetic Media.

After Dark Films produced three of the eight films that will screen in 8 Films To Die For - Faithless, Perkins 14 and The Butterfly Effect: Revelation. The other previously announced entry is Sundance premiere The Broken. The final three films will be announced shortly.
