This almost seems like a dream come true. With the French recently owning the horror genre with their recent output, they are unleashing a creature feature which has practical effects close to what was seen in John Carpenter’s The Thing. Dead Shadows looks awesome, and hopefully, if CGI is used, it used in extremely small doses.
Director David Cholewa looks to be onto a winner with Dead Shadows and we have the brand new teaser trailer which gives us a glimpse at the effects on display. Add this one to your one to watch.
The film stars Fabian Wolfrom, Blandine Marmigère, John Fallon and Rurik Sallé.
Synopsis: “Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story of a young man, named Chris (Wolfrom), whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago, on the same day that Halley’s comet could be seen from earth. Tonight, a new comet is appearing and everyone in his building are getting ready for a party to celebrate the event. There’s even an apocalypse theory going around. As the night falls, Chris discovers that people are starting to act strange – and it seems to somehow be connected to the comet. They are becoming disoriented and violent and it doesn’t take long before they begin to mutate into something far beyond this world. In a fight for survival, Chris tries to escape from his building with the help of a gun taunting tenant named John (Fallon) – but will they make it out alive?”
