‘Deathdream‘ is a horror film that originated from Canada and was directed by Bob Clark.
It was also released under the title ‘Dead of Night‘
Released in 1972, ‘Deathdream‘ is an interesting addition to the zombie genre, and it uses the zombie condition as a tool for social commentary….as well as scares and gore.
In the film, Andy Brooks is a Vietnam veteran who returns home and surprises his family, who were all told that he was killed in action. The opening of the film actually shows Andy being shot by a sniper so the audience is instantly aware that something sinister is going on.
Andy fails to adjust to being back home and his behavior soon starts getting more and more unpredictable….
Deathdream / Dead of Night came with some very different poster styles and artwork.
