Product Description

Product Description

11 Years ago Chris' Parents were murdered the same day Halley's comet was passing in the sky. Now a new comet is appearing and bemused locals gather to view this slightly unnatural phenomenon.

As night falls, Chris discovers that people are starting to act strange, becoming disoriented and violent and it all seems linked to the comet. It doesn t take long before people begin to mutate into something far beyond this world. In a fight for survival, Chris tries to escape from his building with the help of a gun taunting neighbour but will they make it out alive?

night of the comet style, good special effects-best was the girl's face melt, bit of a shock to another girl in a mild sex scene, liked spider girl. there are no aliens in this, its about people turning into horrible monsters and killing each other, although im not sure about the tentacles, where they come from (maybe earth's germs have grown massive), the comet which appears to be circling the earth. is dropping radiation or weird dust and transforming people. although i liked the film, i hated the dubbing, words did'nt match lips at times, poor translation, our hero hardly reacting to a girls melting face-most people by now would of screamed and ran off, he just stands there. takes a while to kick off, horror starts at the party

The film opens with some nice special effects and scenes from outer space as an object breaks off of some dark matter and enters the blue planet...the one covered with water and called "Earth." The story centers around Chris (Fabian Wolfrom) who had some sort of alien encounter as a child and is afraid of the dark. Ten years later a comet arrives and aliens once again occupy Paris. Chris goes to a party and drinks some drink laced with....who knows and then starts seeing faces melt like he took too much acid. But wait! It seems this dumb stuff is somehow real as aliens do whatever it is evil aliens do.

The film started great until someone opened their mouth then it was Oh oh. This is not dubbed very well. I don't mean 60's Italian film bad, but it was noticeable. The plot was not well developed. You had some idea about aliens, but the invading alien horde wasn't really explained and the night time scenes peaked your interest, but not excitement level. Not as entertaining as that Hitler/Nazi thing at the center of the earth, but more realistic.

By godzilla78 VINE VOICE on 21 Jan. 2014
Format: DVD
For a low budget film with some admirable special effects it ultimately fails to live up to the initial promise. And at just around 74 minutes its a slow burner which slowly unravels as it tries to squeeze too much in and hampered by some poor characters and dodgy acting.

So the initial scene (10 years previous) an asteroid appears out of a worm hole and begins to dissolve as it enters the earth's atmosphere. The film's main character then witnesses his father go a wee bit potty and slaughter his mother. Fast forward those 10 years and Chris is a bit of a computer nerd. He ends up hooking up with his neighbour rather conveniently as some of the characters are paper thin. In the meantime he runs into the local nutter who speaks of a fighting off an invasion around about 10 years ago. Anyone seeing a pattern here? So Chris is invited to an 'apocalypse party' as another comet/asteroid is passing by the earth. All this eats up about 45 minutes of screen time and its only at the party that things start to take off. As I mentioned earlier, the special effects are worth praising. Whilst some are the compulsory cgi, the rest are impressive enough.

So the viewer is still in the dark regarding just what the hell is actually going on. The film does try hard to squeeze a lot in and that is unfortunately a weakness. Incorporating ideas from films such as 'Night of the comet' and '28 days later' is fine but don't stretch yourself too thin on a small budget. But that's what eventually happens. Fair play to the director for giving it a go but perhaps less is more. Whilst not an outstanding film, hats off to those involved for giving it a good go. With a bigger budget the director could probably make a pretty good movie as long as work is done on characters and dialogue. At times the film seemed very disjointed but not the worst horror film made by any means.

HASH(0x93d9f348) out of 5 stars Scream Factory Brings Sci-Fi Horror Indie 'Dead Shadows' to Blu-ray 29 Mar. 2014
By ERSInk . com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Scream Factory is branching out in a very big and positive way. Once known as the king of horror movie re-issues, they're starting to grab up some fine new material and broaden their horizons. If you count the Chiller Original Movies, then you know they've been heading this way for a while now. French sci-fi/ horror gem "Dead Shadows" can now be added to the list. Imagine "Night of the Comet" blended together with "The Thing" and you get an idea of what to expect from this creepy little flick.

Chris has been a recluse ever since seeing his parents die eleven years earlier on the eve of Halley's Comet's fly-over of the Earth. Deathly afraid of the dark, he keeps to himself and doesn't leave his flat very often. He decides to break his own rules to celebrate the appearance of another comet at a party with his beautiful neighbor. As the comet passes by our planet, the people around him become increasingly violent. He soon discovers there's more behind their erratic behavior than just a gravitational change or ingesting too much alcohol.

"Dead Shadows" is presented in 1080p High-Definition Widescreen (2.35:1). Most of the film takes place at night, but you can still see everything fairly well. The clarity of the picture does show some of the limitations in CGI, but it's not enough to be too distracting and pull you out of the film.

The audio for "Dead Shadows" features a DTS-HD Master 5.1 mix. All the freaky slithering sounds, screams, and other chilling atmospheric noises will give you the shivers. You'll find yourself looking over your shoulder for a tentacle or two trying to grab you.

"Dead Shadows" is considered to be not rated. If put before the MPAA, it would easily earn an R rating. There are plenty of gory and disturbing sequences of violence and alien transformations. I found myself even cringing at some points. The movie contains some sexual content, nudity, and language as well.

As usual, Scream Factory packs the Blu-ray version of "Dead Shadows" full of bonus material. There's a "Making of" featurette and a video interview with Producer/Director David Cholewa. Theatrical and teaser trailers are included as well.

"Dead Shadows" is one of those great "straight-and-to-the-point" movies. It doesn't take thirty minutes of your valuable time gearing up and going through the motions. It establishes characters quickly and gets to the meat, potatoes, and gore. The movie is such a thrill-ride that when the credits roll you're left begging for more. That's how you know you've just seen something unique and different. How often are you left feeling like that these days?

HASH(0x9085b81c) out of 5 stars Nice, fresh horror 23 Sept. 2014
By Jack Skellington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
This flick was good. I'm not sure what the budget was, however some of the visuals are not well done - yet overall it doesn't detract from the movie. This was an awesome body modification movie, and at times the visuals are great. Overall, I say if you enjoy horror, you will enjoy this flick. It's a fresh story in a genre overrun with duplicates and copies.

By cryo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
what a nice surprise .It was fast paced , too fast at time .It looked good
Honestly the film didn’t look low budget and it looked and felt like a high budget horror film. Hell it was better than half the horror films we get nowadays.A potential cult classic and a french director that is one to watch
