We're back with another round of Horror Highlights! In today's installment, we have release details for Before the Fire and Nothing but the Blood, the trailer for Game of Death, details on the Dracula 2000 soundtrack release, and more:

BEFORE THE FIRE Release Details: "Dark Sky Films is proud to announce that the pandemic thriller BEFORE THE FIRE will be available in virtual cinemas and on digital platforms/VOD on August 14th."

Synopsis - "As a global pandemic engulfs Los Angeles, rising TV star Ava Boone (SAG Award nominee Jenna Lyng Adams) is forced to flee the mounting chaos and return to her rural hometown. As she struggles to acclimate to a way of life she left behind long ago, her homecoming attracts a dangerous figure from her past - threatening both her and the family that serves as her only sanctuary.

Brimming with tension and paranoia, and featuring a tough-as-nails performance from its lead actress, the pre-apocalyptic road movie BEFORE THE FIRE is a shockingly timely tale of the strength of the human spirit against seemingly insurmountable odds."


NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD Release Details: The end is near! NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD arrives on VOD, blu-ray, and DVD nationwide August 4th!

"Jessica Cutler is a small-town journalist sent to cover the grand opening of a controversial new church. As the ministry digs its roots into the town and its residents, Jessica’s life begins to take an unexpected, violent turn that will shake her foundations to their very core. Don't miss this thrilling, dramatic look inside violent religious indoctrination, set against the eerie, idyllic backdrop of rural Texas. Nothing but the Blood stars Rachel Hudson (Ashes to Ashes), Jordan O’Neal (Fabletown), Nick Triola (Remember to Forget), and Les Best (Scare Package). It is written and directed by Daniel Tucker."


THE OLD GUARD: "Led by a warrior named Andy (Charlize Theron), a covert group of tight-knit mercenaries with a mysterious inability to die have fought to protect the mortal world for centuries. But when the team is recruited to take on an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities are suddenly exposed, it’s up to Andy and Nile (KiKi Layne), the newest soldier to join their ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetize their power by any means necessary.
