Overview

Quentin Jones, Kathrine Bates, Kyle Gass, Felissa Rose, and Zack Ward headline this dark tale of psychological torment from novelist/screenwriter Harry Shannon and first time feature filmmaker Yossi Sasson. Jack Wade (Jones) is an actor whose overbearing wife Frankie (Katrine Bates) never let him wander too far out of sight. But Frankie has fallen into a deep coma, and the couple's finances have finally run dry. All this couple has left in the world is an isolated cabin nestled deep in the mountains - a cabin where a man once slaughtered his entire family. Now the caged husband who was never left for wanting will be forced to become his wife's sole caregiver, and he'll have to do it in a dilapidated cabin with a dark history. Save for the eccentric redneck father and son who live down the road, there aren't too many neighbors in this remote neck of the woods, a fact that renders lonely soul Jack something of a fish out of water. The only human connection he has is with local Constable Kate Eidson (Gillian Shure), an Iraq War veteran who won't even carry a gun due to the trauma she suffered on the battlefield. Later, Jack begins to think he's losing his mind when he sees Frankie get up and start moving around the cabin - her crude behavior and vicious taunts wearing his already fragile psyche increasingly thin. Eventually, Jack decides that Frankie must die. When Frankie proves unwilling to oblige, Jack begins to wonder whether she's some kind of monster, the cabin is haunted, or he has finally, truly, lost his mind.

Loads of fun. This is a solid little indie movie that's very much in the 1980's tradition, ala Motel Hell and other whacky horror films. Funny, dark and sometimes very, very off the wall. As one would expect for a low budget indie shot on HiDef, "Dead and Gone" has some scattered weaknesses and tries a bit too hard in a couple of places, but overall if you love the genre it's well worth seeing. The set up is brisk and once it gets rolling manages to create a lot of genuine suspense, especially in the weird cabin scenes when it is just Jack and his supposedly comatose wife Frankie, who is silent one moment and then possessed, aggressive and wildly foul-mouthed. The makeup FX (Dan Crowley) and musical score (Harry Manfredini) are not just okay, they are exceptionally well done. Kyle Gass is very funny and the celeb cameos work well. The director clearly knows and loves indie horror and has a great eye.
