Every Now and again we come across something on social media that really grabs our attention something we just can’t leave alone, almost like that bar of chocolate you promised yourself you will only eat a few square of, and ten minutes later all you are left with is an empty wrapper.
Dead Air is a bit like that, they have teased us with a cracking storyline even been kind enough to open the wrapper a little bit with some amazing imagery, now we want more.
Unfortunately for us Dead Air is going through post-production with its indigogo campaign hitting the final few weeks of funding, one can only drool at this mouth-watering project.
But what’s it all about you ask, why are you guys getting so excited over a film that’s not even available yet? “Well for a start just take a look at the storyline”
“Set on a plane traveling to a final gig, Dead Air tells the story of Monster Kitten, an all-female punk rock band who end up on a flight with some nasty little creatures with all hell breaking loose at 30,000 feet.” I know right you’re thinking Snakes on a Plane all over again, but no because there is no snakes but there are hot girls and some crazy critter mayhem, if that’s not a recipe for disaster I don’t know what is!
