DARK SUMMER and ALIEN OUTPOST Hitting DVD/Bluray This July Via Scream Factory/IFC Midnight

SCREAM-FACTORY-LOGOThe partnership between genre favorites Scream Factory and IFC Midnight has definitely been a good one, with the team-up doing quite an excellent job putting out some pretty entertaining films, with everything from Jennifer Kent’s THE BABADOOK to The Vicious Brothers’ EXTRATERRESTRIAL all being must have releases for horror fans.  Adding even more solid titles to their partnership roster, SF & IFC have now announced the July 7th DVD/Bluray release date for both Paul Solet’s DARK SUMMER and Jabbar Raisani’s VERY solid film ALIEN OUTPOST. It’s been a while since Solet’s last film (the extremely effective and original 2009 motherly tale, GRACE), so DARK SUMMER hitting shelves is some excellent news, and ALIEN OUTPOST is yet another very well done take on both the found footage-like subgenre and alien invasion flicks.

unnamed (49)A claustrophobic modern ghost story, Dark Summer follows Daniel Williamson, a 17 year old under house arrest for the summer after cyberstalking a classmate. With his mother away on business, a horrifying incident occurs and Williamson soon experiences strange supernatural occurrences–which become increasingly more sinister and terrifying, with twists that will leave audiences reeling. Starring Peter Stormare (Fargo), Maestro Harrell (The Wire), Keir Gilchrist (It Follows, United States of Tara), Stella Maeve (The Runaways) and Grace Phipps (Fright Night), Dark Summer is a highly original twist on the supernatural summer season terror.

Set in 2021, Alien Outpost is the story of the aftermath of the First Earth War , in which an invading race of aliens known as the Heavies are narrowly defeated. But thousands of the aliens were left behind, and a new war on terror now rages. In the wake of the war, a series of remote operating bases are created to defend the planet, with the deadliest being base Three Seven, positioned in the most hostile place on Earth.

A documentary film crew is sent to record daily life in Outpost Three Seven, where the men, led by hardened commander Captain Spears (Rick Ravanello, Dark Haul), are under constant enemy fire. When a member of the crew disappears during a Heavy ambush, the unit launches a raid deep into enemy territory to rescue him… only to make a terrifying discovery.

Directed by Jabbar Raisani (Visual Effects Supervisor on Game Of Thrones, Machete, Predators), the explosive Alien Outpost is a science-fiction gem with stunning effects and non-stop action.
