The After Dark Horrorfest 4 lineup is looking good and Clive Barker's new film Dread is on my must see list. The story comes from Barker's Books of Blood--one book in my library that is well worn after years of adoration. Check out the brand spanking new trailer that Shock Till You Drop posted for Dread after the jump.

The story surrounds three college students who set out to make a documentary about fear, but become the subjects as their most terrifying fears are realized and brought to life. Anthony DiBlasi, a producing partner of Barkers, directs the film–working from his own screenplay. Jackson Rathbone (Twilight Saga and The Last Airbender) stars alongside Shaun Evans (Boy A), Hanne Steen and Laura Donnelly. Clive Barker is a producer for the film.

Shock is co-hosting a sneak preview of Dread in Los Angeles at the New Beverly Cinema on January 23, with the cast and crew in attendance. The rest of us will humbly have to wait until January 29 when it hits theaters.
