Shout! Factory Acquires French Indie Horror Film 'Dead Shadows'

By Mark Lukenbill | Indiewire February 8, 2013 at 1:11PM

French horror director David Cholewa's illogically titled debut film "Dead Shadows" has been turning heads for a few months now with its red band trailer, which seems to beg the question of just how seriously the viewer is supposed to be taking it. The film has finally found distribution in the form of muti-platform distributor Shout! Factory, known for their love of releasing and re-releasing the films from the more niche side of the horror genre. The film will receive a VOD rollout and DVD release later this year.

French horror director David Cholewa's illogically titled debut film "Dead Shadows" has been turning heads for a few months now with its red band trailer, which seems to beg the question of just how seriously the viewer is supposed to be taking it. The film has finally found distribution in the form of muti-platform distributor Shout! Factory, known for their love of releasing and re-releasing the films from the more niche side of the horror genre. The film will receive a VOD rollout and DVD release later this year.

You can watch the trailer below. The film follows a young man whose parents were killed eleven years earlier as Halley's comet passed by Earth. Now a new, CGI-rendered comet is passing, and everyone is celebrating accordingly. Except Chris, who begins to notice that people are "acting strange" as the comet passes. Strange is in, having bizarre tentacley sex, turning into giant, naked spiders, and whatever you would call the dance moves that kid is doing at 0:42. Could be a fun, Carpenter inspired B movie masterpiece? We're certainly open to being pleasently surprised.
