Anchor Bay’s DVD/Blu-ray release of Shadow People hit shelves yesterday, and if you haven’t picked up your copy yet, we have scored a trio of clips and a featurette for you guys to check out and make up your mind. So, head on down below and see if this sucker is for you.
The film stars Dallas Roberts (“The Walking Dead,” The Grey, “Rubicon”), Alison Eastwood (Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Tightrope), Anne Dudek (“Mad Men,” White Chicks, 10 Items or Less), and Mattie Liptak (Quarantine 2, The Candy Shop).
Synopsis: “Shadow People is based on a true story about small town radio personality Charlie Crowe (Roberts), who unravels a conspiracy about encounters with mysterious beings. These “Shadow People” were the cause of hundreds of unexplained deaths. He encounters CDC Epidemic Intelligence Agent Sophie Lancombe (Eastwood), whose investigations entwine her with Charlie’s own discoveries, leading them both into a dark world and a decades old cover-up.
The film explores the actual historical evidence of SUNDS and the real phenomenon of an inverse placebo effect, where the mind can actually kill the body through false belief. The film is backed up by real archival footage of a suspected outbreak of SUNDS, which occurred in rural Kentucky, and takes the found footage genre to a new level by intercutting the story with the actual interviews of the real-life participants, local news footage, and radio clips from the event.”
