The Aisle Seat “Lost After Dark” Review

LOST AFTER DARK Blu-Ray (85 mins., 2015, Not Rated; Anchor Bay): Ian Kessner’s directorial debut is yet another homage to ‘80s slashers – but unlike other overhyped salutes to Carpenter and the like (“It Follows,” anyone?), “Lost After Dark” gets the job done in its throwback atmosphere and mood. Kendra Timmins stars as a smart girl whose crush on her school’s quarterback (Justin Kelly) lands her – and a group of their classmates – on a desert road leading to a lonely farmhouse belonging to your friendly neighborhood cannibal (Mark Wiebe). Fairly stylish for what it is, “Lost After Dark” should engage genre buffs when it streets on Blu-Ray September 1st. Anchor Bay’s 1080p (1.78) transfer and Dolby TrueHD soundtrack are both top-notch.
