Our friends from Scream Factory were kind enough to pass along this press release for the Blu-Ray and DVD release of Dead Shadows on April 29, 2014. This is the North American debut for the sci-fi/horror film that became a favorite at the Stiges International Fantastic Film Festival in 2012!
From the Press Release: “Produced and directed by French Filmmaker David Cholewa, DEAD SHADOW, starring Fabian Wolfrom, Blandine Marmigère, John Fallon and Rurik Sallé, tells the terrifying story about a young man, Chris, whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago, on the same day that the Halley’s comet could be seen from earth.
Tonight, a new comet is going to appear 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 starts to discover that people are acting strange – and it seems to somehow be connected to the comet. People are becoming disoriented and violent and it doesn’t take long before they start mutating into something from beyond this world.
In a fight for survival, Chris has to try to escape from his building with the help from some other tenants – but will they make it out alive?”
So it sounds like it has a bit of a Night of the Comet vibe to it with some H.P. Lovecraft tossed in for good measure. You can pre-order Dead Shadows over at the Shout! Factory page by following the link up top.
