From the novel by two-time Bram Stoker Award finalist Michael Laimo, Dead Souls draws you into a harrowing world of family secrets and ancient evils. An original production from Chiller, this relentlessly creepy film delivers unexpected twists and turns and will keep you riveted to your seat.
On his 18th birthday, Johnny Petrie learns he was adopted when he inherits a farm in Maine. Eager for a new life, he leaves home to start over in this “new” dwelling. But soon he learns that the farm, abandoned for the 18 years since his natural family died, has a horrifying history. As he digs into his past, he discovers the grisly details of his family’s deaths, and the questionable teachings of his father, who’d been the local preacher. He also discovers that decades-old forces trapped in the home have revived…and set into motion a heart-stopping ritual prompted by his return to the fold!
Dead Souls stars Jesse James (The Amityville Horror, The Flyboys), Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devil's Rejects, House of 1,000 Corpses), Magda Apanowicz (Kyle XY), Noah Fleiss (Brick), Jaiden Kaine (Hellbenders) and Geraldine Hughes (Rocky Balboa, Gran Torino).
Why We Love It
"Worth the wait and the hype" -IMDB
"I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and must admit I tend to be a bit jaded when it comes to some of the newer horror (esp. made for TV) movies. Dead Souls has a good, solid plot and it moved right along in the right direction." -IMDB
"Good news: for a brief moment, Dead Souls reminded me of Halloween, which is maybe the last thing you’d expect from a made-for-Chiller Network effort. As the film opened with a patriarch inexplicably laying waste to his family, I couldn’t help but think about that scene in John Carpenter’s immortal classic where the cemetery caretaker describes that killing spree over in Russellville. “Every town has something like this happen,” he says, something we know to be true both because they show up in headlines and in movies."- Oh the horror
