Editorial Reviews

Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story of Chris (Fabian Wolfrom), whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago, on the same day that the Halley’s comet could be seen from earth. Tonight, a new comet is appearing and everyone in Chris’s building is getting ready for a party to celebrate the event. As the night falls, Chris discovers that people are starting to act strangely. They are becoming disoriented and violent and it doesn’t take long before they begin to mutate into something far beyond recognition! In a fight for survival, Chris tries to escape from his building with the help of a gun-toting tenant (John Fallon Death Race, Saw II) but will they make it out alive?

Customer Reviews

Overall, I say if you enjoy horror, you will enjoy this flick.
Jack Skellington
There is no character development, which I found extremely hard to believe given the other horror movies I've seen that originated in France.
DCarsonHagy
I had been following this movie for a while, all the way back to when it was just a concept piece and was truly excited to see it finished.

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.

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.

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.

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

Just when you thought it was safe to watch the stars, you find out you're in a heap-o'-trouble! Such is the case for "Dead Shadows." The setting is Paris, France and it seems these coniving aliens tried their takeover of earth once before, but for whatever reason(s) they didn't manage to succeed. Seems they arrive via comet (how original) and this time they have their plans for takeover a little better developed.

The main thing I found wrong with "Dead Shadows" was its Swiss cheese script. Nothing is really ever explained here. The viewer is left with no answers, no ending, and really not caring about the whole deal. There is no character development, which I found extremely hard to believe given the other horror movies I've seen that originated in France. Characters are introduced just long enough to be killed. The protagonist (I guess) in the movie tells another man "he's not a fighter; he cannot fire a gun" and then he turns right around, fires a gun, and becomes an absolute kick-a$$ with an axe.

The movie I saw was unrated. It contained some gruesome special effects, some blood, and a little brief nudity. I didn't care for this one because the overall execution was very poor.

Dead Shadows impressed me. Film-maker David Cholewa offers horror-action fans a film both fantastic and humanistic. The gore and other special effects are memorable and original. The characters and dialogue are unusually relatable and realistic. The performances are solid. As masterfully as Alyson Hannigan on Buffy, Fabian Wolfrom captures the everyman nerd realistically. Dead Shadows target viewers are going to connect with Wolfrom's Chris. They _are_ Chris. Along with Wolfrom, John Fallon gives an excellent performance in a supporting role. Compliments to screenwriter Vincent Jule and the cast. I admired greatly how Dead Shadows homages a hundred and one different '80s films but still manages to present something new.

I recommend Dead Shadows. I had a great time with it.
