Wild Eye Releasing, with sales and distribution support provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has targeted Aug. 8 as the DVD debut date for writer/director Suneel Tripuraneni’s haunted house horror tale, Dead Story.
The first rule of too-good-to-be-true property purchases is to ask why? Why has this marvelous country home been on the market for five long years? But Harold (Chase Austin) and Anne (Kelsey Deanne — Calamity, Shark Lake) don’t ask that question and soon they move into their dream home (filmed on location in and around Celine, Texas … about 20 miles north of Dallas), which just happens to be haunted!
At first Anne, who is a photographer by trade, tries to capture images of the malevolent spirit, but that proves to be futile … and as the ghostly aberration manifests itself again and again poor Anne slowly begins to go quite insane (possessed, perhaps, by the ghost).
Her husband thinks she is going nuts (her demeanor more than suggests just that), the psychologist recruited to help her arrives at the same conclusion and her nasty mother-in-law, Martha (Sheril Rodgers), all but stabs her in the back with her “I told you so” advice to her son.
The creeps and scares mount as a growingly unhinged heroine, coupled with a seemingly haunted house and a disbelieving support group, all point to just one thing … bloody, bloody murder and a soon-to-be new real estate listing!!!
