"The Thing" meets "Dawn of the Dead" in the high-octane horror "DEAD SHADOWS"! On UK DVD 27th July.
11 Years ago, Chris’s parents were murdered the same day the Halley's Comet was passing in the sky. Now a new comet has appeared, and bemused locals gather to view this slightly unnatural phenomenon. As night falls, Chris discovers that people are starting to act strangely; becoming disoriented and violent, which seems to be linked to the comet.
It doesn't take long before people 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 neighbour – but will they make it out alive?
Dead Shadows is one of the true horror gems from the past few years. It’s part zombie film, part alien invasion, with plenty of huge action to keeps things exciting.
As director David Cholewa’s debut film, it’s also the beginning of what looks like a very promising career in genre cinema. He perfectly balances a high-energy pace with a creepy, atmospheric tone – no matter how much fun you have watching it, you know something horrific is lurking just around the corner.
The film is available for pre-order from Amazon.co.uk
