After Dark Films Announces Fourth Film in After Dark Originals 2 Series: Children of Sorrow

Los Angeles, CA (May 16th, 2013) ­ 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), starring 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


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." -Jourdan McClure, Director
