For four outcast teens, summer detention means being assigned to clean their high school after a horrific incident. But they are not alone; a macabre gang wearing guises of The Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse - Famine, Pestilence, War and Death - has locked them inside and is hunting them through the school's ravaged hallways. As the four students battle to survive, each must confront the supernatural echoes of past traumas they have struggled to forget - and may be condemned to relive.
Reviews

Best Horror Film of 2019” – Rob Hunter, FilmSchoolRejects

“A PURELY SENSORY HORROR FILM… Kasten reveals the unease of a generation through gripping visions that do not skimp on gory effects.”  – Alan Deprez, Mad Movies

“The film will likely take many viewers out of their comfort zones, and this challenging outing is bound to remain in the minds of those who see it for a good while…The Dead Ones is destined to be a controversial slice of horror cinema, and it is certainly one that cannot be easily forgotten. Horror movie fans who like to mull over what they have seen will find plenty to think about with this demanding work.” – Joseph Perry, Horror Fuel

The Dead Ones is a juddery, disorienting trip into the psyche of the school shooter, as well as a catabasis into the mor(t)ality of crime, punishment, and maybe even redemption.” – Anton Bitel, Rue Morgue

About the Director

Jeremy Kasten (Co-Producer/Director)

Jeremy Kasten is an American film director, producer, screenwriter and editor, best known for his visceral, cerebral and often psychedelic approach to modern horror. His 2001 directorial debut The Attic Expeditions starred Seth Green, Alice Cooper and Ted Raimi, premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival and Cinénygma Luxembourg International Film Festival, and has been hailed by Dread Central as “one of the best mind-fuck movies ever.” His 2007 neo-noir re-imagining of Herschell Gordon Lewis’ splatter classic The Wizard Of Gore starred Crispin Glover, Brad Dourif and Jeffrey Combs, premiered to sold out-crowds at the Los Angeles Film Festival and Fantasia, and was called “one of the most shocking, entertaining and best horror films of the year” by Film Arcade.

Kasten has also contributed to the acclaimed horror anthology films The Theatre Bizarre and The Profane Exhibit. His other features include the 2005 zombie thriller All Souls Day: Dia de los Muertos starring David Keith, Laura Harring and Danny Trejo, which premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival. His 2006 ‘vampirism as addiction’ shocker The Thirst starred Clare Kramer and Jeremy Sisto, premiered at Sitges, and was called both “a fast-paced flick that delivers the goods” (DVD Talk) and “the bloodiest vampire movie ever” (DVD Crypt).
