The Dead Center (Preview)


A 'John Doe' is declared dead and his body stored in the morgue, but he disappears. While a medical examiner begins his search for the missing cadaver, the unidentified man is discovered alive in a catatonic state and sent to a psychiatric ward. Dr. Daniel Forrester (Shane Carruth, Upstream Color) is called to keep him under surveillance in an attempt to get some answers. The man eventually starts talking, telling Daniel that he has come back from the dead and believes he's brought something evil with him.

The Dead Center takes its time to build its suspense, there is a credible realism to the hospital setting which makes the otherworldly qualities seem even more outlandish. The results are a thoughtful, compelling and rewarding horror film.
