You know that expression “If you want something done right, do it yourself”? Well, in the case of Midnight Syndicate’s upcoming DVD release of The Dead Matter, we’ve gotten word from the film’s director, Edward Douglas, that he’s doing just that. He’s keeping it indie and distributing it himself … with a little help from Hot Topic stores nationwide.
From the Press Release:
Midnight Syndicate Films has announced plans to release a special edition of The Dead Matter DVD that will include two bonus CDs by Gothic Halloween music artists Midnight Syndicate. It will be available at all Hot Topic stores nationwide on July 30th. The specially-priced set will include The Dead Matter DVD, the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack CD by Midnight Syndicate, and a new Midnight Syndicate 13th Anniversary greatest hits CD entitled Halloween Music Collection. Midnight Syndicate Films has also released a new official trailer for The Dead Matter movie (check it out below) and launched a revamped official The Dead Matter website.
The Dead Matter: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack CD contains the score composed by Edward Douglas as well as several limited-edition remixes of Midnight Syndicate songs and other music that appears in the film from bands like Lazy Lane, HipNostic, and Eternal Legacy. Midnight Syndicate’s Halloween Music Collection CD features over 60 minutes of songs hand-picked by Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka to celebrate the band’s first 13 years. Both new CDs will also be available at Halloween retailers nationwide in August.
Check out the artwork for the DVD and two CDs below The Dead Matter synopsis as follows:
A guilt-ridden young woman desperate to contact her deceased brother discovers a powerful ancient relic that controls the dead. Her dark obsession drags her into the tangled world of two warring vampire lords (Andrew Divoff of Lost, Wishmaster and Tom Savini of Friday the 13th, Dawn of the Dead), each with his own sinister plans for the artifact, and a vampire hunter (Jason Carter of Babylon 5), who will stop at nothing to destroy it. This chilling Gothic dark fantasy co-produced by Robert Kurtzman (creator of From Dusk Till Dawn, KNB FX) features a haunting score by Halloween musicians Midnight Syndicate. It’s a mix of classic horror themes with modern twists and a touch of dark humor that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
