Storyline

A couple's weekend getaway turns into a nightmare after they are stranded in the woods and discover what they assume to be a dead body. The assumption is wrong and John and his girlfriend Jennifer are infected with a deadly disease that will soon ravage their bodies. With no place to go, and no one to turn to, they are forced to find shelter in a deserted cabin. This is where they'll find safety, but this is also where they'll experience a slow and torturous death. They must come to terms with their inevitable deaths, the temptation to kill others to sustain their own lives, and the consequences of murder. They will cling to one another's love and support, but in the end.... all great love stories end tragically. Written by Horizon Entertainment

You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
8 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shadows of the Dead is a rather longwinded lesson in appreciating your life, because it can be taken away so quickly. I do appreciate the moral, just not the execution.

A valuable lesson, but the movie lacked enough to make it interesting. The movie is very slow, and every scene seems to be leading to a inevitable conclusion, one we know from very near the beginning, so perhaps the film could have had a little more meat on the bone, while still getting across a solid message.

Overall I give the movie a 4 because although the atmosphere and intention was good, it wasn't a joy to watch in any respect.
