Almost Too Much Awesome in Lovecraftian ‘Dead Shadows’ Poster

All you have to do to get my attention is throw some icky tentacles in your movie. I see ’em, I’m there… no matter what.

DC Medias, a French distribution and sales company, has released a remarkable piece of sales art for a new horror flick now in post-production.

The French Dead Shadows, from David Cholewa, scream H.P. Lovecraft, while also channeling Frank Darabont’s The Mist. Fabian Wolfrom, Gwendolyn Gourvenec, John Fallon and Laurie Cholewa all star.

Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story about a young man, Chris, whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago – the same day that Hayley’s Comet could be seen from earth. Tonight, a new comet is going to appear and everyone in his building is getting ready for a party to celebrate the event. There’s even an apocalypse theory going around.

As the night falls, Chris starts to discover that people are acting strange – 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 from some other tenants – but will they make it out alive?
