Dead Before Dawn: Ontario’s First 3D Film Showing At Cannes
“Dead Before Dawn” is a horrifying comedy that promises adventure, and a lot of fun. It follows the main character, Casper Galloway, and his college friends, as they accidentally unleash a curse that turns people into Zombie Demons — or Zemons. Christopher Lloyd — the famous professor in one of my favourite trilogies, “Back to the Future” — is playing the role of Casper’s grandpa, so the laughs are sure to come. Some are describing it as “Shaun of the Dead” meets “The Goonies”.
It’s another great Ontario success story on the silver screen, and it all happens in 3D. “Dead Before Dawn” was shot from start to finish in Stereoscopic 3D, making it the first full-length, live-action Ontario 3D feature. It’s a first for Canada, too. Not only that, director April Mullen, from Niagara Falls, is now the youngest and only woman ever to do it.
Supported by the Ontario Media Development Corporation and Telefilm Canada, “Dead Before Dawn” has been chosen to screen as part of the 7th annual Perspective Canada_Cannes, running parallel to the Cannes Film Festival.
If you happen to be in France, you can catch the screening on Friday (May 18) at 11:30 a.m. and Sunday (May 20) at 3:30 p.m. at Arcades 3 in Cannes. But if you’re sticking around Ontario, it’s coming to the big screen this fall.
