Dead Air Poster Contest Update
We recently posted news about the Dead Air fan poster contest, and several entries have already been submitted. This is a reminder to our more artistically inclined readers to get cracking on your own poster, and to the rest of you … Get Voting!
The contest doesn’t close until midnight on October 26th, and you can get more details and see some of the early entrants’ work here. One of them — or a new one that some artist is feverishly working on now — will be the winner unveiled on Halloween at Fangoria’s Trinity of Terrors in Las Vegas and signed by Bill Moseley, Patricia Tallman, and Corbin Bernsen.
Dead Air is described as The Howard Stern Show meets 28 Days Later and follows the plight of a shock-jock radio deejay (Moseley) and his team as a massive swarm of bloodthirsty maniacs races through the city around them. The maniacs are the victims of a terrorist-released bioweapon created by the US government, but turned against American citizens.
Director Corbin Bernsen, known for his starring roles on TV’s LA Law and the current USA Network series Psych, describes Dead Air as “a cautionary tale that’s really not all that unrealistic. The film’s horror comes from the reality, the plausibility. We know that many countries, including our own, are experimenting with bioweapons. What happens if one of these breaks loose?”
The Halloween screening during the Trinity of Terrors will kick off a nationwide “radio tour” promoting the film; director Bernsen plans to record eighty live radio interviews over the course of two weeks in early November, broadcasting from coast to coast. “This is a radio-based movie, so our marketing efforts fit that mold. Between the radio-waves and the Internet wireless signals, we’ll be hitting people on a whole lot of wavelengths.”
