First Look: Liam Neeson and Christina Ricci in After.Life

There are always a few horror movies that seem to creep up out of nowhere, and After.Life is one of those. After.Life stars Liam Neeson as Eliot Deacon, a funeral director who holds the fate of young woman caught between life and death in his hands. Christina Ricci plays Anna Taylor, the woman who has a chance of living again until she discovers that Deacon has the gift of transitioning the dead, and he might just be intent on burying her alive. Thanks to Bloody-Disgusting we have some photos from this. In addition to Neeson and Ricci, the cast includes Justin Long, Alfred Molina, Josh Charles, and Chandler Canterbury.
Click any of these photos to see a more on BD. I decided to feature these not necessarily because I think they look great (I'm not the biggest horror fan), but rather because this cast is just too great to ignore. Normally you don't see a whole line-up of great actors like Neeson, Molina, Ricci, and Long all starring in an indie horror movie, but this time that's the case. This was written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo, who graduated from NYU in 2003. The film doesn't have a US distributor yet, as far as I know, but I expect it to show at various film festivals sometime later this year and/or next year.
