My first thought for Dead Shack is The Goonies meets the dead! Who doesn’t love a kickass movie with young kids battling adult situations?! In this trailer, we witness a group of kids: Summer (Lizzie Boys), Jason (Matthew Nelson-Mahood), and Blonde (Taylor St. Pierre) having to fight against a group of zombies that have entered their shack in the woods. This will not be a simple task since zombies are quick to eat anyone in its path.
The blood and guts, the gore, the special effects look magnificent. I very much believe in the success of the film based on this trailer. I believe the trailer alone did a great job showing amazing gut eating effects between the zombie and its victim. The detail to the zombies’ rotten flesh and walking dead portrayals are excellent and 100% believable. Meredith Lacosse who is head of the makeup department did very well with the look of the zombies and special effects coordinator Brant McIlroy matched.
Cinematographer Christopher Charles Kempinski did a wonderful job with mood based off of coloring and camera movements. He did a great job making the situation a place where one does not want to be yet can’t stop watching! Director and writer Peter Ricq seems to have a promising movie I look forward to watching
Dead Shack looks like the perfect movie to catch this fall. From its witty cast to special effects the film seems hilarious, bloody, and the perfect amount of dead.
