For four straight years now, After Dark Horrorfest: 8 Films to Die For has been unleashed. Eight original horror films to quench your thirst for blood and gore and screams galore. Last year I was able to check out and review their third collection of horrors (Read: DVD Review: After Dark Horrorfest III: 8 Films To Die For), and was rather excited to check out their new slate this year! Instead of cramming every review into one mammoth review, this year we’ll take it one flick at a time, with this little opener stuck at the top of each one.
Picture yourself at a party with all of your closest friends. You’re drinking, laughing, and having an all-around great time. Suddenly, you awake to the sounds of screaming and realize one of your friends is dead, and if you don’t kill the rest of your closest friends, you all die. This is the dilemma facing the characters of Kill Theory.
This particular group of close friends are celebrating their upcoming college graduation before intoxication lures them into sleep. Horrific screams wake them up, and they make the gruesome discovery that one of them has been murdered. The body has a message on it prompting them to turn on the TV, and they are informed that a psychotic killer is now holding them hostage. The house is surrounded by deadly traps and there’s no way out. The only option? Kill each other. If one of them is alive when the clock hits 6:00am, that person goes free. If more than one is still alive, they all die.
