Trailer: 1408 Meets UNFRIENDED in Techno-Terror DEADCON

By Josh Millican

The trailer for Deadcon (embedded at the top of the article) looks like a potent mix of techno-terror and supernatural horrors. The film is set to premiere on June 15th as part of Chicago’s Cinepocalypse Film Festival courtesy of ALTER, a new horror brand from global studio Gunpowder & Sky.

The horrors and isolation of being a social media influencer run rampant when a collection of YouTube and Instagram stars soon discover there are things scarier than thousands of teenagers armed with phones asking for selfies.

Deadcon is directed by Caryn Waechter from a screenplay penned by Scotty Landes. The film stars Dominic Burgess, Lukas Gage, and Mimi Gianopulos.
