THE DEAD CENTER
First show: October 11
Troubled psychiatrist Daniel Forrester (Shane Carruth, Primer, Upstream Color) is drawn to help a mysterious patient who is brought to the emergency psych ward in a catatonic state with no memory of how he reached the hospital. As if to exorcise his own demons, the doctor feverishly tries to break through to his mysterious patient. But as a spate of mysterious deaths shake the ward to its core, Forrester comes to suspect that there is more to his new ward than meets the eye. As he comes to realize what he’s unleashed, a desperate race against the forces of evil threatens to swallow him whole.
“This horror stars Shane Carruth, the indie filmmaker (Primer, Upstream Color), this time working only as an actor (and also a producer). He plays a hospital psychiatrist whose sanity is pushed to the edge when a frightened amnesiac patient insists that he has died and brought something terrible back from the other side. Also starring Jeremy Childs, Poorna Jagannathan, and Bill Feehely. This looks super unsettling and extra creepy, and really picks up halfway through when they pull back that hospital sheet with the open mouth. Horror fans should keep an eye on it.” -Alex Billington
