Storyline

Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story about a young man, Chris, whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago, on the same day that Halley's Comet could be seen from earth. Tonight, a new comet is going to appear and everyone in his building are getting ready for a party to celebrate the event. There's even an apocalypse theory going around. As the night falls, Chris discover that people are acting strangely - and it seems to somehow be connected to the comet. People are becoming disoriented and violent and it doesn't take long before they start mutating into something from beyond this world. In a fight for survival, Chris has to try to escape from his building with the help of a gun toting tenant. Written by David Cholewa

Asylum has a French division?
13 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's as if a writer and director who lacked the talent to work for Asylum, and failed to land a job at the Sci-Fi channel, got together in France to make a film that even learning-impaired fans of the genre couldn't stomach.

But it's certainly not worthless. Many moments cross the line into unintentional comedy. The slapstick sound effects alone were hilarious, making the sound work from The Walking Dead seem ultra-subtle by comparison.

It's a suckfest of epic proportions, and fails in ways that you seldom see. The actions and motivations of the characters are so weird that it goes beyond catastrophic failure into something else. Something un-named. Something vile and unholy. This film is, for what it's worth, not even remotely a typically derivative and formulaic film. This blazes new paths of suckage that are unique. There is no apparent reason behind much of the writing. It's like they threw darts at a poster of actions and emotions for each scene.

A very different flavor of sucking that I've never seen before, and I've seen a lot.

A film this horrible deserves no stars. But for sucking in ways that almost defy explanation, it gets two.
