My name is Michael Joy and I'm the Manager of the horror website, Horrornews.net. I also do Public Relations Marketing for Artsploitation Films and Woodhaven Media, but my dream has always been to make a movie.
But not just any movie....
DEAD afterlife is a unique zombie / ghost mash-up that's been called Night of the Living Dead meets Heaven Can Wait.
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. What would you do? What could you do? 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?
Synopsis # 2
DEAD afterlife is the result of a medical experiment gone horrible wrong. The AWAKE super drug was created by Pharmaceutical Engineer, Donald Conlee for the good of all mankind. Its effects were designed to speed up the healing process on comatose patients, but what really happened is beyond comprehension. Through a tragic turn of events, Donald Conlee finds himself trapped in a coma and the only way out is to be a human guinea pig for his own experimental drug. The results are fatal but the power of the drug exceeds everyone's expectations when Donald Conlee finds himself dead awake at his own funeral. Now, he realizes that death is only the beginning of this horror story.
I appreciate everyone's support to help bring my movie to Project Greenlight and Clive Barker's Reel Fear Contest.
