DEADLAND: Film Review by 3rd Dog Script



Where will you be…what will you do and how will you protect your loved ones in a post-apocalyptic world?


The sci-fi action/thriller DEADLAND plunges you into a world of martial law.  It takes you along the journey of Sean (Gary Weeks) a survivor of World War III's nuclear strikes on the U.S. A pandemic reigns as many survivors were infected by a fatal nuclear plague and separated into different concentration camps by Officers of the New Provinces. The quest starts when the protagonist finds evidence that his missing wife (Emily-Grace Murray) may still be alive in the new United Provinces. His determination to find her is equal to his personal war against the cruel Officers of the New Provinces. Jax (Brian Tee) an unexpected ally brings a bit of humor to the realistic struggles in action filled drama. DEADLAND visually demonstrates our fear as well as our hope in a post-apocalyptic world.

Winner of 16 awards including Best Feature, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Original Screenplay

Director Damon O’Steen and writer/producer Gary Weeks present a fantastic post-apocalyptic thriller considering their budget. All aspects of the film were impressive with excellent cinematography, moving score, superb acting, and great direction. You will not be disappointed in this indie film that visually portrays a depressing yet hopeful future. I found this gem at the Derby City Film Festival February 2010 and loved it!
