Watch: First Trailer for French Sci-Fi Horror 'Dead Shadows' Arrives
"In the past, comets were perceived as a bad omen…" But now? Not to be confused with Dark Shadows, which just came out this weekend, David Cholewa's Dead Shadows is an upcoming French sci-fi horror film that we have actually written about before. Remember that impressive promo poster with the tentacles and baseball bat? These are the same film. This is about a comet passing close by Earth that seems to affect everyone and everything in Paris, turning people into wacky alien creatures, and much more. AICN found the first trailer from their Vimeo. I'm quite curious to check this out. "I hope you're not afraid of the dark."
Watch the first uncensored trailer for David Cholewa's Dead Shadows, via their official Vimeo:
Dead Shadows is directed by first-time filmmaker David Cholewa, from a script by Vincent Julé, starring Fabian Wolfrom as the lead character Chris, plus John Fallon and Rurik Sallé. "Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story about a young man, Chris, whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago - the same day that Hayley's Comet could be seen from earth." Now years later there's a new comet coming and everyone is throwing a party, but as night falls, Chris notices people begin to act stranger and stranger. The film was shot in Paris last year and is premiering in the Cannes Film Festival marketplace coming up this month. It doesn't have a distributor yet, so expect this to play at many film festivals first. I want to see it! Thoughts?
