Mandao Films has recently announced their screening MANDAO OF THE DEAD at the Comic Con International Film Festival 2019. The festival is part of the San Diego Comic Con.
“Mandao of the Dead is a true indie horror with colorful, wildly quirky characters […] sure to be a cult favorite”
– Nightmare on Film Street
The unambitious Jay Mandao lives frugally off his late father’s cereal royalties. He wants nothing more than to live in solitude, but is duped into taking in his adult nephew-in-law, Jackson.
As Halloween approaches, Jay begins having odd dreams, and comes to find that he has the ability of astral projection. Jay and Jackson are approached by a ghost who has a small window of opportunity to reverse his death at the hands of Jackson’s murderous ex-girlfriend.
This is the second feature from Writer/Director Scott Dunn and Producer Gina Gomez Dunn. The “genre-bending” film has recently gained some media attention with Dunn lauded as a filmmaker who, “… makes a better film than contemporary directors with twenty-plus features on Amazon” (Film Threat).
Mandao Films has also announced a sequel in the works, currently entitled “Mandao Returns” slated for a 2020 release. Prior to filming, the Mandao team will launch their crowdfunding campaign on October 2019 on to raise funding for the film. Details on the campaign to be announced soon.
MANDAO OF THE DEAD, is now available to stream on Amazon Prime, iTunes, and Vimeo on Demand.
