Midnight Syndicate readies “The Dead Matter” new video now online


For everyone in the haunt world, you know Midnight Syndicate. If you’ve been following along with us, you know we love them. They’ve been on our podcast, and have been on the others that I have hosted over the years. We consider them friends, and are really excited to see their new film (which they’ve been talking about for a few years now) finally get a release. I know from a fan standpoint, Halloween wouldn’t be the same without them. Now we get to see a killer horror flick that should become at the very least, a cult classic.

About The Dead Matter movie:

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,’ Wishmasterand 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.
