Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story of a young man, named 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 are getting ready for a party to celebrate the event.

As the night falls, Chris discovers that people are starting to act strange – and this seems to somehow be connected to the comet. They are becoming disoriented and violent and it doesn’t take long before they 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 tenant (John Fallon) – but will they make it out alive?

“With DEAD SHADOWS, co-producer and first time director David Cholewa wants to redefine the creature horror genre with lots of action. By taking what the French are well-known for in the horror genre and going back to the old 80's vibes and elevating it to the next level, David wants to create a film that is fun, suspenseful, full of action and scary. A true homage to the cinema he loves, from John Carpenter to Steven Spielberg, inspired by HP Lovecraft and comic book artist Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri." 


David made "Dead Shadows" with the help of co-executive producer Julien Dunand of the film company SECTION 5, who made two highly acclaimed documentaries on John Carpenter ("Big John") and Nicolas Winding Refn ("NWR”). Dead Shadows is a small miracle: Shot in only 3 weeks the movie has more than 100 CGI shots and practical effects. The action scenes and outdoor scenes were shot in Paris.


Digital District (Enter The Void, The Artist, Babylon AD) has created some exciting and original 2D and 3D effects. The sound design is made by the great Alan Howarth (Raiders of the lost ark, Total Recall, Back to the Future, Star Trek and some of the best John Carpenter's movies such as Escape from New York and They Live), while the original music score is signed by Kevin Riepl (Gears of War).
