The Dead Ones – USA, 2019 – preview

‘High school is hell’

The Dead Ones is a 2019 American horror feature film about four teenagers in detention being haunted by past traumas.

Directed by Jeremy Kasten (The Profane Exhibit; The Exorcist Files; The Wizard of Gore; The Thirst) from a screenplay written by Zach Chassler, the Sick-O-Scope production stars Sarah Rose Harper, Brandon Thane Wilson, Katie Foster, Torey Garza and Claire Kramer.


Summer break is almost over. Four youngsters are punished by having to clean the school and can only leave when everything is spick-and-span. At first sight, it looks like the school was left by a very enthused group of students, but soon they realize a horrible event has taken place.

While trying to unravel the mysterious havoc, they are chased by four marauding, masked people. These four Gas Masks seem like the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, as they represent Famine, Pestilence, War, and finally Death.

They set traps and hunt the young students down. While the youngsters are fighting to survive, they discover that they’re more involved with the ravaged school than they first thought…
