2.0 out of 5 stars One big pile of bad July 24 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't know what to say other than Dead Shadows is one big mess. I was so excited that I pre-ordered this movie, but was ultimately let down by the terrible editing, horrible CGI, dreadful writing and subpar acting. I normally love foreign horror but this is not the case for Dead Shadows. Stay away unless you find it VERY cheap and have time to waste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scream Factory Brings Sci-Fi Horror Indie 'Dead Shadows' to Blu-ray March 29 2014
By ERSInk . com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Scream Factory is branching out in a very big and positive way. Once known as the king of horror movie re-issues, they're starting to grab up some fine new material and broaden their horizons. If you count the Chiller Original Movies, then you know they've been heading this way for a while now. French sci-fi/ horror gem "Dead Shadows" can now be added to the list. Imagine "Night of the Comet" blended together with "The Thing" and you get an idea of what to expect from this creepy little flick.

Chris has been a recluse ever since seeing his parents die eleven years earlier on the eve of Halley's Comet's fly-over of the Earth. Deathly afraid of the dark, he keeps to himself and doesn't leave his flat very often. He decides to break his own rules to celebrate the appearance of another comet at a party with his beautiful neighbor. As the comet passes by our planet, the people around him become increasingly violent. He soon discovers there's more behind their erratic behavior than just a gravitational change or ingesting too much alcohol.

"Dead Shadows" is presented in 1080p High-Definition Widescreen (2.35:1). Most of the film takes place at night, but you can still see everything fairly well. The clarity of the picture does show some of the limitations in CGI, but it's not enough to be too distracting and pull you out of the film.

The audio for "Dead Shadows" features a DTS-HD Master 5.1 mix. All the freaky slithering sounds, screams, and other chilling atmospheric noises will give you the shivers. You'll find yourself looking over your shoulder for a tentacle or two trying to grab you.

"Dead Shadows" is considered to be not rated. If put before the MPAA, it would easily earn an R rating. There are plenty of gory and disturbing sequences of violence and alien transformations. I found myself even cringing at some points. The movie contains some sexual content, nudity, and language as well.

As usual, Scream Factory packs the Blu-ray version of "Dead Shadows" full of bonus material. There's a "Making of" featurette and a video interview with Producer/Director David Cholewa. Theatrical and teaser trailers are included as well.

"Dead Shadows" is one of those great "straight-and-to-the-point" movies. It doesn't take thirty minutes of your valuable time gearing up and going through the motions. It establishes characters quickly and gets to the meat, potatoes, and gore. The movie is such a thrill-ride that when the credits roll you're left begging for more. That's how you know you've just seen something unique and different. How often are you left feeling like that these days?

2.0 out of 5 stars DON'T LOOK AT ME June 15 2014
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
The film opens with some nice special effects and scenes from outer space as an object breaks off of some dark matter and enters the blue planet...the one covered with water and called "Earth." The story centers around Chris (Fabian Wolfrom) who had some sort of alien encounter as a child and is afraid of the dark. Ten years later a comet arrives and aliens once again occupy Paris. Chris goes to a party and drinks some drink laced with....who knows and then starts seeing faces melt like he took too much acid. But wait! It seems this dumb stuff is somehow real as aliens do whatever it is evil aliens do.

The film started great until someone opened their mouth then it was Oh oh. This is not dubbed very well. I don't mean 60's Italian film bad, but it was noticeable. The plot was not well developed. You had some idea about aliens, but the invading alien horde wasn't really explained and the night time scenes peaked your interest, but not excitement level. Not as entertaining as that Hitler/Nazi thing at the center of the earth, but more realistic.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Caterina Perazzi )

2.0 out of 5 stars Just Not Enough June 2 2014
By Donald C. Hagy - Published on Amazon.com
Just when you thought it was safe to watch the stars, you find out you're in a heap-o'-trouble! Such is the case for "Dead Shadows." The setting is Paris, France and it seems these coniving aliens tried their takeover of earth once before, but for whatever reason(s) they didn't manage to succeed. Seems they arrive via comet (how original) and this time they have their plans for takeover a little better developed.

The main thing I found wrong with "Dead Shadows" was its Swiss cheese script. Nothing is really ever explained here. The viewer is left with no answers, no ending, and really not caring about the whole deal. There is no character development, which I found extremely hard to believe given the other horror movies I've seen that originated in France. Characters are introduced just long enough to be killed. The protagonist (I guess) in the movie tells another man "he's not a fighter; he cannot fire a gun" and then he turns right around, fires a gun, and becomes an absolute kick-a$$ with an axe.

The movie I saw was unrated. It contained some gruesome special effects, some blood, and a little brief nudity. I didn't care for this one because the overall execution was very poor.
