DEAD OF NIGHT Is a New Horror-Filled Snap Original on Snapchat


Snapchat has a new Snap Originals series releasing this weekend called Dead of Night. This horror series is based on a Hooked story and follows a teenage girl as she tries to escape the zombie apocalypse. The film uses ScreenLife to give viewers the point of view from her smartphone. It’s an interesting format to be sure.

Armed with only her phone, a teenage girl must escape a quarantined city full of zombies. Shot in ScreenLife, exclusively from the point of view of the smartphone screen. Based on a Hooked story. Scripted horror series produced by Bazelevs in association with Hooked.

Timur Bekmambetov is one of the producers of the series, and he recently released the following statement:

Dead of Night marks a new milestone in the evolution of Screenlife. Producing for Snapchat and going vertical makes the story more immersive and acknowledges reliance on our phones and their essential role in our lives. And since subconsciously, we find footage captured by the phone more believable, our project will deliver a never before seen level of realism and dynamic to Snapchat users. Providing a completely new perspective on the zombie apocalypse, Dead of Night is more than just a show, it’s a unique breathtaking experience.

Personally, it looks too horror for me, but horror fans, let me know if you’re interested in checking out the series. Dead of Night will be available on Snapchat on September 14.
