\"Could the age-old myths of vampires and the living dead be more than mere stories This is a question that the characters of THE DEAD MATTER are forced to ask when their lives suddenly clash with the darker forces of nature. THE DEAD MATTER is a gothic drama, which combines the lore of vampires, magical rings, and the living dead in a modern day setting!\" Now tell me that this movie does not grab the interest of any horror fan who may read it Over the past ten years, Midnight Syndicate has been taking listeners on musical journeys into the darkest corners of their imaginations. . Now they are bringing to life (in more ways than one) their nightmarish visions to the big screen with the supernatural horror thriller, The Dead Matter http://www.thedeadmatter.com Midnight Syndicate is teaming up with Hollywood FX legend Robert Kurtzman (Dusk Till Dawn, co-founder of KNB EFX Group) and his production company, Precinct 13 Entertainment to produce this greatly anticipated horror-suspense thriller. It would be a great waste to NOT see this film hit theaters nation-wide in 2008! I am looking to get as many signatures as humanly possible in order to let Hollywood know what *We the People* want to see at theaters and drive-ins instead of their knack for making the decisions for us! Andrew Divoff (Wishmaster, Air Force One, Toy Soldiers), who was seen most recently as the eye-patch- wearing villain, Mikhail Bakunin, on ABC\'s Lost and will be seen in the upcoming film, The Rage, will be joining the cast as the character, Vellich. Vellich\'s arch-nemesis, Ian McCallister, will be played by Jason Carter whose career spans everything from his renowned portrayal of Marcus Cole on Babylon 5 to characters on shows like Beverly Hills 90210, Angel, Charmed, Third Rock from the Sun, and in films like Demon Under Glass. Horror-FX legend Tom Savini (Dusk Till Dawn, Dawn of the Dead), a fixture in the genre for over thirty years and seen most recently as Deputy Tolo in Grindhouse, will be portraying the devious vampire overlord, Sebed. Producer Gary Jones (Xena, Army of Darkness) and Edward Douglas will be directing the film and producing it through the newly-formed Midnight Syndicate Films division of Entity Productions, Inc. In 2004, Douglas reunited with co-writer Tony Demci to begin what would be a two year long process of re-writing the script and then preparing it for production with the help of Ethan Dettenmaier of Snap Kick Productions. Principal photography for what promises to be a fantastic romp will begin this August. Horror fans everywhere are eagerly anticipating this exciting remake of the original movie by the original director, Ed Douglas, even more so after reading the frequent updates, cast additions and the added bonus of the fact that Midnight Syndicate is teaming up with Robert Kurtzman and Precinct 13 Entertainment. Photos and teasers will be available in the next month. (Please copy & paste the link above for updates and in-depth info into this amazing work in progress!)
