The great Dee Wallace has joined a host of fellow horror icons in DEAD afterlife, an upcoming indie horror directed by Jared Cohn (12/12/12, The Domicile).
The E.T./Cujo/The Howling actor lines up alongside the likes of Michael Berryman (with whom she starred in The Hills Have Eyes), Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder and Bill Oberst Jr. in the film, which was written by Artsploitation Films’ Michael Joy. Read on for the official synopsis.
Imagine watching your own funeral as a ghost and then the unthinkable happens, your undead body climbs out of your coffin and starts killing and eating your friends and family. Pharmaceutical Scientist, Donald Conlee faces this conundrum after he’s murdered and is administered his own “Awake”, super drug. His death was only the beginning of his problems. The Gatekeeper has given Donald a time limit to return his Zombie-self to the ground, or else his soul can never gain entrance into Heaven. To complicate matters, he finds out that his murderer is at the funeral and his girlfriend is in grave danger. How can a couple of disgruntle gravediggers and a hearse driver help Donald’s lost soul find the way? Or maybe the real question is how can the spirit world defeat the living dead?
Also starring are David Gere (Almost Mercy, The Find), Andy Gates (The Blessed Ones, Garden Party Massacre), David Vescio (Hick, Wolf Mother), Mindy Robinson (King of the Nerds, Check Point) and WWE’s Diamond Dallas Page (The Devil’s Rejects).
More on this one as we get it.
