Like your horror served hot, with erotic tentacles a la carte? (Why do we even ask?) Check out the skin-crawling trailer for the French fearfest Dead Shadows.

With a solid nod to every comet-calamity film ever made, this indie offering contains some seriously disturbing imagery. There's a little John Carpenter and Lovecraft tossed into the sci-fi salad, and from what we've seen, the blend goes down smooth. Director David Cholewa may be a name to keep a paranoid eyeball on in the future.

Have a look ...

The film stars Fabian Wolfrom, Blandine Marmigère, John Fallon and Rurik Sallé.

Here's the official synopsis:

Dead Shadows tells the terrifying story of a young man, named Chris (Wolfrom), whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago, on the same day that Halley's comet could be seen from earth. Tonight, a new comet is appearing and everyone in his building are getting ready for a party to celebrate the event. There's even an apocalypse theory going around. As the night falls, Chris discovers that people are starting to act strange - and it seems to somehow be connected to the comet. They are becoming disoriented and violent and it doesn't take long before they begin to mutate into something far beyond this world. In a fight for survival, Chris tries to escape from his building with the help of a gun taunting tenant named John (Fallon) - but will they make it out alive?"

No release date is set, but this could turn out to be one creepy little summer sleeper.
