DEAD afterlife The Movie –
From the creative genius of HorrorNews.net comes a brand new vision in Horror cinema.
Imagine watching your own funeral as a ghost and then the unthinkable happens, your undead body climbs out of your coffin and starts killing and eating your friends and family. What would you do? What could you do? Pharmaceutical Scientist, Donald Conlee faces this conundrum after he’s murdered and is administered his own “Awake”, super drug. His death was only the beginning of his problems. The Gatekeeper has given Donald a time limit to return his Zombie self to the ground – or else his soul can never gain access into Heaven. To complicate matters, he finds out that his murderer is at the funeral and his girlfriend is in grave danger. How can a couple of disgruntle gravediggers and a hearse driver help Donald’s lost soul find the way? Or maybe the real question is how can the spirit world defeat the living dead?
You are cordially invited to Donald Conlee’s funeral. RSVP if you dare.
Join the Superstars of DEAD afterlife: Michael Berryman, Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Bill Oberst Jr., Austin Idol, Liana Mendoza, Trae Ireland, Andy Gates and Director Jared Cohn!
Hi Horror Fans,
If you don't know me, allow me to introduce myself. I’m a movie geek. I love horror movies, especially. If you are reading this then I would imagine that we have something in common. I’ve been writing for HorrorNews.net since its inception in 2008. I’ve grown with HorrorNews.net through the years and now I’m overjoyed to manage the greatest staff of any horror website.
I wrote the screenplay, DEAD afterlife as an alternative to remakes and prequels. I believe movies should honor the past, and I think we do a great job while remaining true to ourselves and our story. This is an opportunity for us (the horror community) to come together and make a horror movie that we can be loud and proud of.
I welcome everyone reading this to come and make a FULL LENGTH FEATURE MOTION PICTURE with us. It’s a ZOMBIE/GHOST MASH-UP that will leave your emotions in a whirlwind. Any donation is invaluable. You won't leave this experience empty handed. Our perks are outstanding. Now, let’s make some noise and wake the living dead.
The ghost of Donald Conlee finds himself attending his own funeral only to be surprised that his zombie counterpart is killing all his guests. Now, it’s up to Donald’s ghost to figure out how to get Donald’s undead body back into his grave.
On the eve of one of the most important medical breakthroughs in history,
Terranova Pharmaceuticals representative Donald Conlee is found dead in his New
Jersey home. His miracle drug “Awake” was supposed to be a dream come true in
the field of brain trauma. Instead, Donald Conlee finds himself dead awake
during his own funeral. In a supernatural turn of events, it’s up to the ghost
of Donald Conlee to put his own undead body back into the ground, in order for
his soul to gain entrance into Heaven. Can the afterlife defeat the living

Here are some of our favorite quotes :
Tom Holland (Child's Play, Fright Night) says, “Mike Joy is a terrific, talented guy, who has written a warm, funny, people oriented riff on zombies. It’s different, touching, and sweet. I like it. Support him. Help him make his film.”
Jared Cohn (Atlantic Rim, 13/13/13) says, "DEAD AFTERLIFE is a really interesting, original story that also is action packed, with relatable characters. It's a story that is a unique combination of ghosts and one seriously, bad ass zombie. It's got cult classic written all over it."
Bill Oberst Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies, Take This Lollipop) My honest opinion and this is being honest it is f*cking brilliant.
A ghost watching his undead body eat funeral guests? Oh my
God! Have ghosts and zombies ever been mixed? It expands both genres. It
is a metaphor. too.
I love ghost stories and I think you have found a way to freshen up
the zombie genre.
I want to see this movie! I want to see Donald trying to reason with his zombie
body and experiencing the mixed emotions of hating and hurting what used to be
his body; the only home he ever knew. I want to see his fat aunt at the funeral
get her ass munched up by zombie Donald. I want to see it all!
Austin Idol (Pro Wrestling Legend) says, "Creativity & Imagination are always a winning formula and Michael Joy has raised the bar with Dead Afterlife. Rod Serling would be proud of this one"
