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

Awful Mess
17 November 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The bizarre "Dead Shadows" is a terrible film with a messy screenplay and awful protagonist. There is no backstory or character development explaining the weird situation. The viewer learns that a family is destroyed in the disconnected beginning of the movie without any further explanation. Eleven years later there is a comet passing close to or maybe crashing on Paris. People is celebrating the end of the world, but out of the blue, they turn into grotesque creatures. The lead actor is a strange guy that seems to have the power of attracting easy and shallow women including his gorgeous next door neighbor. The violence is free and the CGI is very poor, recalling a Sci-Fi production. The unexpected conclusion is awful and completes with golden key this forgettable mess. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Sombras da Morte" ("Dead Shadows")
