After waking up in a body bag, a mysterious John Doe disappears and finds his way to the hospital’s psychiatric ward, where he becomes the charge of a devoted doctor (Shane Carruth) who is fascinated by the man’s claims of being controlled by a “blackness” inside of him. Meanwhile, a curious medical examiner (Bill Feehely) searches for clues into the cause of the man’s disappearance. As the two men are drawn deeper John Doe’s psychosis they start to realize that the truth might be more sinister and ancient than they ever dared imagine.
The Dead Center takes on complex ideas about life, death and immortality, infusing them with a slick and unsettling injection of classic hospital paranoia. Bolstered by a riveting performance from Shane Carruth (Upstream Color), The Dead Center is a much-needed reminder that the most frightening moments can come from the most human of places.
“A creepy collision of the psychological and the supernatural…a masterclass in rising tension.”
– Anton Bitel, SciFi Now
