Jourdan McClure’s Children of Sorrow, looks absolutely intense. This is one director you all need to keep your eyes on, and it appears as if After Dark agrees, as they have just announced that Children of Sorrow has been added to the After Dark Originals 2 series (ADO2). Also, this one stars none other than the indie beast himself, Bill Oberst, Jr!
From the Press Release:
“After Dark Films proudly announces the fourth film in its After Dark Originals 2 series (ADO2), CHILDREN OF SORROW. A film that delivers a petrifying look into a cult psyche, CHILDREN OF SORROW is directed by Jourdan McClure (Rogue River, Die Maniacs Die!), written by Ryan Finnerty (Rogue River, Smosh), and stars Bill Oberst, Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, Take this Lollipop) and Hannah Levien (The Palace Players).
“We are so excited to welcome Jourdan McClure into the After Dark Family. He’s an incredible talent. Children of Sorrow is such a thought-provoking and disturbing film. It sparked many debates and was the cause of endless sleepless nights.” -Stephanie Caleb, EVP Creative Affairs
Synopsis: 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 sisters disappearance, only to find a dark secret within the cult and an even darker secret within herself.
