A pregnant police officer (Liv Collins) and virtually blind man (Adam Seybold) must rely on each other for their only chance for survival in a world suddenly ravaged by a nightmarish and bloody plague of the living dead…

Reviews:

“An exciting film that features strong cinematography, the use of red lighting is extremely effective in the climax, Deadsight is one of those rare gems. A zombie film that brings new thrill and chills to a well-travelled genre.” Courtney Small, Cinema Axis

Deadsight is a film you’ve seen before. Best part is, you don’t care. It has expert pacing. It thrills when it needs to. It’s approach is unapologetic. Pop the popcorn and enjoy.” Sean Ellis, Crypt Teaze

“Ben’s blindness and Mara’s due date are nothing but shock-value additives, only inhibiting their hosts in the least necessary times. With more expanding upon their relationship or drama between human characters, there’d be something meatier here. As is, Cook’s responsible for nothing but a run-of-the-mill survival story that struggles to creatively manipulate focal obstacles.” Matt Donato, Flickering Myth

” …there is something very honest and potent about Cook’s stripped-down approach and Liv Collins and Kevin Revie’s screenplay. Thanks to cinematographer Jeff Maher, it all looks suitably bleak and Canadian.” Joe Bendel, J.B. Spins

Deadsight may bring a bit of predictability but also adds something fresh to the zombie film. Some great performances by the lead duo of Liv Collins and Adam Seybold help drive the film in this tale of survival.” World Film Geek
