The film “follows an all-female punk rock band who end up on a flight with some nasty little creatures at 30000 feet. With only the help of their instruments, a tape recorder, a dodgy crew member and a bottle of piss, the girls try to fend off the evil to get to play their final gig.”

From the Press Release:
 This ambitious practical fx heavy short, utilising Labyrinth style puppets and prosthetic monster
make up effects is a love letter to the creature features of the 80’s as well as being a goopy
blood soaked fun ride. This concept short aims to convince sales agents, distributors and a host of others that Dead Air is the next horror comedy hit to come out of the UK.
Director of Photography is Tom Allen (Selfie, Glove Compartment), and the film is to be scored by Dan Hall (Scrawl, Angel of Saigon). Dead Air is set to star Stacy Hart (Selfie, Get Real), Charlie Bond (Strippers V Werewolves), Kate Marie Davies (Escape from CannibalFarm), James Hamer Morton (My Bloody Banjo, The Fitzroy), Johanna Stanton (TheNightmare Box), Dan Palmer (Stalled, My Bloody Banjo), David Schaal (The Inbetweeners, The Fitzroy). Puppet Co-ordinator is renowned puppeteer Andrew James Spooner (Muppets Treasure Island, Furchester Hotel, Gerry Anderson’s Firestorm). Dead Air will also have a Special Horror Genre Icon on board who will be announced after the Indiegogo campaign.
Dead Air plans to take a flight into hell with practical puppetry, set aboard a Boeing 737,
shooting at Black Hangar Studios in Hampshire, UK in Spring/Summer 2017.

The film will offer two things that we need more of, horror-comedies and creature features. The fact that Dead Air is both is awesome. The genre hasn’t a movie like this since Gremlins. Personally,  I’m can’t wait to see it. If you want to see Dead Air come to life, be sure to visit the Indiegogo campaign page and follow on Twitter for regular updates and more.
