You probably have seen Dallas Roberts wandering around the town of Woodbury as the zombie-studying scientist Milton in the hit TV series "The Walking Dead." But in the trailer for the straight-to-Blu-Ray supernatural thriller "Shadow People," Roberts stars as a sleep-deprived, talk-radio host who is, literally, afraid of his own shadow. Watch poor ole' Milton start to have terrifying visions of shadowy figures after one deeply-troubled listener calls into his show and commits suicide on air.
Alison Eastwood also stars, playing an investigator looking into a recent string of deaths, all of which seems to be connected to a real phenomenon known as Shadow People. Written and directed by Matthew Arnold, the Anchor Bay feature will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD, starting on March 19th.
Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome is a real phenomenon where seemingly young, healthy people can die mysteriously in their sleep. Survivors of the syndrome report a feeling of terror while being paralyzed in their bed as a shadowy figure attempts to grab or strangle them. When a rash of sleep fatalities is reported on air by a struggling late night radio host, Dallas Roberts (The Walking Dead), a skeptical CDC investigator, Alison Eastwood, is called in to verify his claims. What they discover is a deadly, psychological condition where fear causes the shadow beings to appear. This supernatural thriller, based on true events, interweaves never-before-seen archival footage, interviews and news reports about this horrifyingly, real phenomenon. Don't be afraid - or you could be the next victim of the SHADOW PEOPLE ...
