TaglineOnce You're In, The Terror Begins.
Popular boy band Take 10, in need of a new singer, holds an audition for a slew of contestants, including over-serious rocker Shawn (Coltin Scott). He isnt interested in being in a fluffy pop group, but was talked into auditioning by his girlfriend, Stacy (Ryan Starr). Shawn is selected as a finalist, and the band flies him and the other hopefuls to a remote beach resort, ostensibly to choose a winner. Instead, the band reveals their dark secret: Theyre really zombies looking for a feast.
Ring of Darkness is a 2004 fantasy horror film directed by David DeCoteau. Although never released into American theaters, the movie was released worldwide, and translated into several languages other than English, such as French, Spanish, Italian and German.
When the singer of a popular rock band disappears under mysterious circumstances, a contest to find a replacement soon turns from dream-come-true to waking nightmare for the young singer who hopes to take the job.
