The Dead Center is a cerebral and immersive supernatural thriller about Daniel Forrester (Primer and Upstream Color director Shane Carruth), a psychiatrist who is attempting to solve the mystery behind a patient’s (Jeremy Childs) catatonic state.
Directed and penned with precision by Billy Senese, the feature has its share of scares, but it doesn’t rely on on cheap thrills to tell its narrative.
“I usually cannot get through a script,” said Carruth. “I hate them. I hate the format. I hate everything about them. This one read beautifully and I saw what he was getting it and we had conversations that made me feel that he knew exactly what was doing.”
