This truly unique take on a buddy film makes THE CIVIL DEAD Terror-Fi’s ‘Find of the Year’ – an unpredictable ride that will have you laughing out loud. If you enjoyed previous Terror-Fi titles like EXTRA ORDINARY and GREENER GRASS, you’ll not want to miss this.

Clay is a loner photographer who enjoys a mundane life with his artist wife Whitney in Los Angeles. Whitney advises Clay, who has been creatively stagnant and unemployed for months, to go out and be productive while she’s out of town and not to “just lay in the living room and drink beer”. While taking photos out in a park, Clay happens upon his long-lost friend, Whit. After a night of catching up, Whit discloses an unsettling secret to Clay, which puts a strain on his marriage and causes him to question his own sanity.

“The Civil Dead is really unique in its approach to telling [this type of] story, and it’s something that we definitely haven’t seen before.” – Tessa Smith, Mama’s Geeky
