Format: DVD
Dead and Gone is a genuinely creepy black comedy in the tradition of the "Evil Dead" series. This horror film is exceptionally well directed, cleverly written, with an inspired use of light and color and special effects. The one thing that stays well buried is the low budget.

An out of work actor who married for money takes his comatose wife to a deserted cabin in the mountains, where he immediately encounters ghosts, zombies, fearsome, horny rednecks and some demons from his own black soul. His love interest is the local constable, who has been so damaged by her experience in Iraq she won't even carry a gun. That decision comes back to haunt her, along with "things" far worse than any bad dream or bad choice.

There is solid acting, especially from Quentin Jones, who is on-screen throughout most of the film. It also has good quality makeup effects and superb music by genre master Harry Manfredini.

Kyle Gass from Tenacious D does a wonderful supporting turn as perverse TV evangelist Reverend Grass. Chris Bruno from TV's "Dead Zone" among others, contribute cameos. Ben Moody from Evanescence also appears.

Dead and Gone's screenwriter Harry Shannon comes in at the end as the philosophical sheriff. He also sings the theme song, "Forty Years of Pain" (which he wrote) in his yearning, sexy growl. And Trainwreck does a terrific up-tempo version of the song over the credits.

Yossi Sasson's debut effort looks classy and fresh in a crowded field.

Format: DVD
This may be the first screenplay offered up by Harry Shannon but he is a man of considerable experience in the horror genre. He has been a successful novelist in the genre for many years now with his books well received by the critics and public. He is a man of many talents including composing and performing music. His novels cover topics that range from suspense, mystery and even a werewolf or two thrown in for good measure. With such a versatile background this film could not do better in the script department. Shannon wrote the theme song for the flick and took a turn in front of the camera. He provides the first twist in the plot by having the trophy spouse as the husband. The couple on the verge of finical ruin so he takes his comatose wife up to a remote cabin in the woods, something he won in a poker game. Naturally, as things go in stories like this, the area has a bad reputation. Awhile back a man went crazy in that cabin and killed his family. The isolation begins to wear on the man until he is not sure what is real and what just his overactive imagination. This is one aspect of the story that sets it above the pack. There are elements of a psychological thriller blended in that keeps the audience constantly guessing as to what will happen next. Shannon was influenced by the old EC horror comic that infused dark humor into the stories. He takes a similar approach here breaking up the tension with such black comedy. This doesn't impede the movement of the plot it just gives the audience a little change of pace and a chance to catch their breath between the spookier parts. His characters are mostly fully fleshed out and believable with enough of their own back stories to make them interesting. This is a refreshing change from the cardboard cut outs in so many horror flicks of late.Read more ›

Format: DVD
A shack is abandoned in the Nevada mountains after a murder-suicide. Jack moves into the shack with his comatose wife and a bunch of hospital monitors that go "PING." He is taking all kinds of pills with alcohol. He begins to see the dead people, the victims of the house. At some point he murders his wife, only to be haunted by her. As the movie progresses, she enters into advance decay, although not nearly as effectively done as "Werewolf of London" it was a good effort.

F-bomb, sex, nudity (Thank you Gillian)

Format: DVD
Cheap-o B-movies are a dime-a-dozen these days, cluttering up the market and appearing on Pay-Per-View movie channels, most of them without trailers so you can't see how terrible they are until you buy them. Classy. Quite frequently I'm sent review copies (screeners) of horror movies, and roughly 99% of them are utter tripe, and really leave you wondering if the Blair Witch era of "anyone who has a camera can be a director" filmmaking was really such a positive thing.

Thankfully, for every dismal, amateurish waste of film, there are little gems. And while DEAD & GONE only just misses greatness, there's certainly enough style and substance to warrant giving it a look.

First off, the style. The look of the film is superb, and immediately raises the quality of the picture above average. Filmed in HD (which is still no gaurantee of a nice-looking picture if the DOP hasn't a clue what to do with it), the makers of DEAD & GONE clearly know what they're doing, and make the most of the technology available to them. Aside from a few hiccups, there's little to say this hasn't been lensed by a veteran.

The same applies for the sets/locations. All are used to the max, and they work wonderfully, aiding in the construction of an unsettling and credible milleu. The cabin was creepy, the woods were creepy...it worked for me.

Acting: This is where some of the film's worst faults can be found. While some of the leads are terrific (particularly the female sheriff and the Main Man with the Plan), some of the more peripheral characters are wince-inducingly bad. Which is, I suppose, only a fault to those who, despite being used to bad acting in B-movies, still hope that it'll get better someday. On the plus side, never is it bad enough to have you reaching for the STOP button.
