Movie Info

From the producer of THE DEVIL'S REJECTS and CAPOTE- Back in the 1970s several patients in an experimental sleep study reported seeing shadowy intruders. These patients - and hundreds of others - died in their sleep soon after. Doctors called the phenomenon 'Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome'. They refused to discuss the shadows. Now a struggling late-night radio host (Dallas Roberts of THE GREY and "Rubicon") and a skeptical CDC investigator (Alison Eastwood) have begun researching a disturbing new outbreak of shadow sightings and sleep fatalities. Could this be a case of paranoid hallucination or are these victims literally being scared to death by actual nightmare creatures? Anne Dudek ("Covert Affairs" "House M.D.") and Mariah Bonner (THE SOCIAL NETWORK) co-star in this supernatural thriller based on true events documenting the authentic existence of SHADOW PEOPLE.more

Audience Reviews for Shadow People (The Door)


A very original and creepy horror film. Not a blood and gore movie but something more in the mold of a Val Lewton film in which the horror is suggested rather than shown. It is not one of the ubiquitous "found footage" movies but it does use a similar and quite original gimmick to promote the audience's suspension of disbelief. Good performances by a good cast in what was obviously not a big budget film. Well worth seeing.

It was an ok movie few jumps from me lived how he made himself the martyr by lying aboit the existance so that others wouldn't get hurt yet human curiosity is its own downfall

A blending of a traditional movie and supposedly "documentary footage", Shadow People tries to walk the weird line that The Fourth Kind walked before it, and this split aesthetic hampers it somewhat as it did with The Fourth Kind. Nevertheless, Shadow People manages to be a relatively engaging and sometimes creepy supernatural horror film that in many ways seems to mimic some of the Slender Man legends that argue that belief in the supernatural will cause it to happen to one. Not as great as it could have been, Shadow People starts dragging in the middle, but it is still an entertaining evening's worth of horror.
