Editorial Reviews

Wes and Fi are empty. Wes is a burned-out photographer and Fi is the writer's-blocked author of zombie novellas. While their love still burns strong, artistically their hearts have been locked in a box for years. When Fi shows signs of mental illness, Wes does everything in his power to help. He soon discovers that dark forces lurk inside and has no choice but to imprison her until he can figure out what to do with this familiar-looking person he doesn't recognize any more. Fighting against her disturbed intruder, can the lovers rediscover inspiration in the grimmest corners of this musical horror movie?

5.0 out of 5 stars Do yourself a favor and watch this. December 7, 2012
Travis Betz is quickly becoming one of my favorite directors. His knack for witty, well written dialogue and small cast indie film making shine in this film. One of these days somebody is going to give Travis the money and freedom to express his creativity on a larger scale, but for now we a left with gems like The Dead Inside and Lo- his previous foray into demonic fantasy. No one in Hollywood has the balls to even pitch a zombie musical and Mr. Betz pulls it off on what I can only imagine was a shoestring budget. This film is ambitious yet simple in it's storytelling and I guarantee the songs contained within will be stuck in your head for days.

Watch this movie and tell your friends about it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Incredible February 12, 2013
By Fi
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Since words often fail...sing it in a song. I am an avid Travis Betz fan. Anything he makes, i love. The Dead Inside filled the hole i needed for a dark, comedic, horror musical. I'm a horror head, but extremely picky. The Dead Inside not only has some of the most catching songs (how catchy? i raced to my computer to download the soundtrack after watching less than twenty minutes), it is also filled with heart, tasty hearts. The filming is also beautiful, each frame is candy for the soul.
The plot is also wonderful, it throws out a twist and i cannot remark any further on that! it just has...exceptional writing, acting and music. In a world were the worst movies possible get huge budgets and promotions left and right... i often feel ill. How can a load of .... get a budget and yet one of the most creative teams, gets almost nothing? and yet make something a thousand times better???
I love love love The Dead Inside. I hope you will give it a chance, because it certainly deserves one, and i guarantee you will not regret it.

3.0 out of 5 stars TYPE, READ, DELETE, THINK February 4, 2013
Fiona or Fi (Sarah Lassez) is a zombie story author who lives off cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine, and sugar. These are clearly gateways for demonic possession. She lives in a brightly painted apartment which gives the film a surreal setting. "The Dead Inside" is a novel she is writing. The zombies in the film are part of the book. This is not per se, a zombie film.

Wes (Dustin Fasching) is a wedding photographer and her live-in boyfriend. Fiona has writer's block which she cannot overcome.

***MIDPOINT PLOT SPOILER*** We come to find out Fiona is possessed by an "evil" spirit named Emily, who is less dark than Fi. The film deals with the odd relationship she develops with Wes.

The production is interesting as you keep wondering how much is real, imagination, or mental illness and whose. The musical numbers are different, with Sarah being the stronger of the two voices. The music didn't seem to add anything to the story which lacked great entertainment quality in this two man play. The film does show talent on the part of writer/directer Travis Betz, but he needs to bring it home. This is clearly not a film for everyone and a disappointment for anyone expecting real zombie action. I still haven't figured out if I liked it or not. It is one of those odd movies.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, nudity (Sarah Lassez), implied sex. Walmart $9.96 with clever slip cover that made me buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Are Witches Goth? February 19, 2013
The Dead Inside is an indie zombie musical. I'm not sure there are any others. Fi (Sarah Lassez) and Wes (Dustin Fasching) both suffer from a lack of inspiration for their respective jobs. Fi is a frustrated zombie book writer, and Wes is a frustrated wedding photographer. Fi's book is played out onscreen by Lassez and Fasching, as zombies Harper and Max. Their dilemma, being stuck at a locked door, is where the story is at a standstill. Emily is a spirit who inhabits Fi's body, and interestingly, cures her writer's block.

There were a couple of scenes that were startling to me: Wes finds Fi/Emily with a flashlight, covered in blood; and Fi's ghost floats over Wes' body. I thought this movie was amazing, but I have a minor gripe: The music is very flat. It sounds as if every instrument was recorded at the same level, and in mono. Contrasting that is the deleted song, which sounds much more dynamic. Odd. I don't have 5.1, so maybe it's better with that.

I thought the title The Dead Inside was plain and uninspired, but in actuality it has multiple meanings: Dead Emily lives inside of Fi's body; You might say that Fi and Wes are dead inside creatively; and outside of the opening sequence, the movie plays out entirely inside.

The extras on this DVD are:
- About 36 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, including many bloopers and tests
- Deleted song, "What Is Wrong"
- Audio commentary with Travis Betz (writer/director) and Shannon Hourigan (cinematographer)
- Audio commentary with Travis Betz, Sarah Lassez, and Dustin Fasching
- Trailer

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Professional and very Independent Zombie Musical January 18, 2013
There's a lot to enjoy in this "zombie musical": it's very professional (I say that because I believe it was shot on a very shoestring budget), it seamlessly shifts from horror to comedy to musical, and the actors are outstanding.

And I want to give a special kudos to Sarah Lassez: she's amazing. She acts, she sings, she looks fantastic. She's someone I definitely want to see more of (and someone I'll be looking back to see more of her work).

My only problem with this film is some confusion caused by the script. Sarah's character is possessed by an invading spirit at one point in the story. When she's shown being haunted in spooky scenes after that, I was a little unsure about what I was supposed to feel: is that the Sarah we cared about fighting back to regain her body...and should she be treated like a dark presence now?

Still, an enjoyable film that makes me want to see more of these filmmakers. And especially Sarah Lassez.
