Dead Still

Booth Brother Domination

Statistically documentary films outperform other genres. Documentaries are low-budget, require few actors, and utilize a lot of public domain materials. Filmmakers can produce a quality documentary for little expense. Comparing all genre films, horror movies come in a distant second. Consider the horror documentary. Gold mine potential! The Booth Brothers write, produce, and direct some of the best horror documentaries out there.

The Booth Brothers have found their niche. Start with a popular haunted locale or famous possession case. Conduct extensive research. Combine newspaper articles, interviews, investigative footage, and re-enactments. Finalize by laying a music score. The end product is an educational and entertaining documentary. I especially enjoy the music. Haunting and unique to each production, the music score weaves the various pieces together. Perfection.

The Booth Brothers now seek to tackle mainstream moviemaking. Dead Still, an original SyFy movie, premieres on October 6th at 9 pm EST. I can’t wait to see their transition from non-fiction material to fiction. The story revolves around an antique Victorian camera previously used to take mourning portraits, or memento mori. Before cameras became affordable, photographers came to houses to photograph the recently deceased. The purpose was to provide the grieving family one image of their loved one. This practice has stopped, but the camera was passed down through a family.

The camera’s new owner takes wedding portraits. He decides to use the old camera. Bad idea! Tune in to the SyFy Channel on October 6th at 9 pm EST to see how bad it gets. In the meantime, listen to Archer Paranormal Radio on Thursday, October 2nd as Christopher Saint Booth discusses the movie.
