Halley’s Comet causes more trouble for Earthlings in DEAD
SHADOWS, a new French fright film currently in production. The first details, a
poster and the first trailer have surfaced.
David Cholewa is directing and producing the movie, which
stars Fabian Wolfrom, Gwendolyn Gourvenec and 100 FEET’s John Fallon, with a
special appearance by French TV host Laurie Cholewa. The story focuses on a
young man named Chris, whose parents were brutally killed on a day when
Halley’s Comet could be sighted in the sky. Eleven years later, the comet will
be visible again and Chris’ neighbors are preparing to celebrate—but as the
event gets closer, people begin acting strange, disoriented and violent,
ultimately mutating into unearthly beings, leaving Chris and the other
unaffected tenants to fight for their lives. The special makeup and FX were
created by David Scherer, whose credits include Jean Rollin’s LA NUIT DES
HORLOGES, Jean-Marc Vincent’s BABY BLOOD sequel LADY BLOOD and the forthcoming
THE THEATRE BIZARRE.
“With DEAD SHADOWS, producer and director David Cholewa
wants to redefine the creature horror genre with lots of action,” according to
PR from DC Medias, which begins selling the movie at this month’s Cannes Film
Festival market. “By taking what the French are well-known for in the horror
genre and going back to the old ’80s vibes and elevating it to the next level,
we want to create a film that is fun, suspenseful, full of action and very
scary.” Shot with the RED Mysterium X camera, DEAD SHADOWS began shooting in
April and will wrap in July, with completion targeted for the end of this year
and a French theatrical release planned for 2012.
