A trailer for David Cholewa’s French horror flick “Dead Shadows” has risen onto the Internets to ensnare you in its many CGI tentacles. It definitely looks good, if a tad low budget, but I’ve never let that stopped me before. I’m guessing they’re working with limited resources here, and showing just the visuals, without what is probably going to be French dialogue, was a good idea to sell the film to an International audience. Let the tentacle mayhem commence!
Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story about a young man, Chris, whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago, on the same day that the comet of haley 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?
The horror film stars Fabian Wolfrom, Gwendolyn Gourvenec, John Fallon, and Laurie Cholewa, and is promising a 2012 release date.
