The Dead Matter will have its premiere in Cleveland

Two months ago, Ed Douglas, the mastermind behind local Goth/industrial heroes Midnight Syndicate, finished post-production for The Dead Matter, a horror movie he directed. Shot in Northeast Ohio, the film tells the tale of a woman who tries to connect with her dead brother and inadvertantly enters a supernatural world. Now, with the movie out to potential distributors, it’s time to hurry up and wait. “We’re trying to find the best match for us,” says Douglas, who just returned from showing a trailer of the film at the Midwest Haunters convention in Columbus. “It’s arguably the most important decision we’ll make. It’s completely up to the distributor whether it goes straight to DVD. I leave it up to the experts to make that decision. They know what makes the most sense.” Douglas says the film will “definitely premiere in Cleveland,” probably in late August or early September. “I’m trying to figure out the best way to do the premiere,” he says. “It should be a fun event. I’m looking forward to it. It’s not a groundbreaking horror film, but it is entertaining. That’s for sure. That’s what I like about it.”
