The Dead Center – USA, 2018

The Dead Center is a 2018 American psychological horror feature film written and directed by Billy Senese (Closer to God). The Sequitur Cinema-Movie City Films production stars Shane Carruth, Poorna Jagannathan and Jeremy Childs.

A hospital psychiatrist’s own sanity is pushed to the edge when a frightened amnesiac patient insists that he has died and brought something terrible back from the other side…


” …the medical examiner’s peculiar path stumbles somewhat from serving largely as intertwined exposition. Still, the unusual approach to storytelling increases the movie’s atypical appeal as a hypnotic chiller. Engaging performances from unfamiliar faces, a mesmeric score from composer Jordan Lenhning, and a cleanly clinical look to Andy Duensing’s cinematography tie the bow…” Ian Sedensky, Culture Crypt

“My greatest compliment to Billy Senese’s third feature is in his casting. His characters aren’t beauties. They’re everyday people you’d find in the believable settings […] Jeremy Childs is disturbing. While the runtime could have been cut to make the movie flow smoother this is still quality filmmaking, with a good story, all done on a budget.” Headless Critic, Without Your Head
