Uncork’d Entertainment and filmmakers Tony Jopia, Nika Braun, Yannis Zafeiriou and Alexander Zwart reanimate the silly season with Dawning of the Dead, premiering on Digital 12/5.
Dawning of the Dead Synopsis:
While a virus that causes the dead to reanimate brings the world to its knees, the scientist responsible entrusts his cataclysmic findings to Katya Nevin, a troubled ex-war correspondent turned anchor-woman at W.W News. While she and the rest of her crew witness the collapse of society via video feeds from around the globe, a deadly special agent climbs the building floor by floor, his only goal to ensure her silence. Armed only with information and an indomitable will to live, Katya must overcome her crippling anxiety and learn to lead in order to make it out of the studio and into a terrifying new world where only the dead survive.

After a young, middle-class couple moves into a suburban ‘starter’ tract house, they become increasingly disturbed by a presence that may or may not be somehow demonic but is certainly most active in the middle of the night. Especially when they sleep. Or try to.
I would have to say that Found Footage horror movies may just be my favorite type. Well, it’s neck and neck with slasher flicks.
I remember when this movie first came out in the theaters, I can’t remember how many times I went and saw it. There hasn’t been a good found footage film at that time since the Blair Witch Project came out in 1999.
This movie centers around two characters, Katie and Micah. They start to have strange things going on in their house so they decide to set up a video camera to see if they could capture some of the activity that goes on while they sleep. As things get worse, they decide to call in a psychic to see if he can help them with their problem. The psychic though ends up telling them they are dealing with a demon, not a ghost.
As things start to get worse for Micha and Katie, will they survive the night in their haunted house?
