Movie Info

Troubled psychiatrist Daniel Forrester (Shane Carruth, Primer, Upstream Color) is drawn to help a mysterious patient who is brought to the emergency psych ward in a catatonic state with no memory of how he reached the hospital. As if to exorcise his own demons, the doctor feverishly tries to break through to his mysterious patient. But as a spate of mysterious deaths shake the ward to its core, Forrester comes to suspect that there is more to his new ward than meets the eye. As he comes to realize what he's unleashed, a desperate race against the forces of evil threatens to swallow him whole.

Critic Reviews for The Dead Center

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (1)

  • As riveting as it is fresh it's a slow and dreadful burn that, despite its detrimentally short run-time, manages to be one of the more intriguing, effective indie thrillers as of recent memory.

    December 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Mediocrely entertaining and repetitive in the procedures, The Dead Center lacks guts and never coheres into something special.

    November 22, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • [Billy Senese's] second feature feels exceptionally authentic - no trace of medical soap operatics here - and is well played by a roster of newcomers, allowing it to build to a genuinely impressive clinical crescendo.

  • For pleasing pre-Halloween viewing, you could do a whole lot worse than The Dead Center. Just don't expect too many nightmares afterward.

    October 11, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • There's a lot of excellent atmospherics here that are more unsettling than the actual violence, which in turn is all the more effective for largely being kept just off-screen.

  • Makes hospitals seem even scarier than they already are.
