A trailer for The Dead Ones came out in late 2019. Now, the film has been acquired by genre focused Artsploitation Films. An innovative title, The Dead Ones was developed by director Jeremy Kasten (The Attic Expeditions) and writer Zach Chassler. In the film, four outcast teens are on clean-up duty and serving Summer detention. When four masked killers turn up, they must confront a real horror. Those fighting the horror include actors: Sarah Rose Harper ("The Last Time"), Brandon Thane Wilson (The Blacklist), Katie Foster and several others. A few more details, on The Dead Ones, are hosted here.

A couple of early reviews have come out, since the film's Belgium World Premiere. Anton Bitel at Rue Morgue has mentioned the Columbine influences in the film: "[The Dead Ones] play[s] out in a manner that is distressingly contemporary, in an age when, for good or ill, children lead much of their lives online, and when, post-Columbine, school violence has taken an ever more deadly turn." Equating violence with schools might not be the best creative choice right now. Still, Joseph Perry at Horror Fuel also reviewed the film at the Another Hole in the Head Film Fest'. Perry says the film is memorable: "The Dead Ones is destined to be a controversial slice of horror cinema, and it is certainly one that cannot be easily forgotten." With all of the violence in the trailer, The Dead Ones promises a shocking experience.

Artsploitation Films has announced that The Dead Ones will release on September 22nd. To show on most home entertainment formats, more release details will come in soon.
