Angel Productions Inc. took on the Executive Producer role for the movie, Dead Body –
This independent film debuted in October 2015 with rave reviews.
Nine high school kids celebrate graduation at a secluded home in the wilderness. They fight, philander, and feel nostalgic as they embark on a life away from home, in college. Once the party dies down they play a game: Dead Body. But when one party-goer takes the game too far, actually murdering the other guests one by one, it’s up to the group to set aside their tensions, and ferret out the murderer before it’s too late.
Check out the official trailer for Dead Body-
RAVES AND REVIEWS FOR DEAD BODY
Gruesome Magazine – “Dead Body” (2015): Deadly, Dangerous and Fun
“Dead Body does an extremely nifty job of standing out from the crowd by refusing to pander to its audience. This isn’t a silly, stupid little slasher film. It’s a smart, exciting and bloody thriller that manages to keep its audience on the edge of their seats while giving them a knowing wink at them at the same time.”
“Perhaps DEAD BODY’s greatest asset is that the narrative treats as many characters as possible as three-dimensional characters, fleshing out each potential suspect as someone you can root for to either survive or, at the very least, not be the killer. In this sense, DEAD BODY also offers a fair amount of suspense in creating interpersonal tension, especially in a film where unsteady allegiances and suspicions can change at the drop of a hat”
DEAD BODY AT FILM FESTIVALS
In a dark, secluded wood, the lovely Ilsa gasps for breath. She’s behind a rotting shack, hiding from a murderer…until his shadow passes over her. Ilsa lunges at him, screaming! But the killer dodges, whacks her with the shovel. Ilsa falls to the forest floor, and looks up to see the killer’s face:
ILSA: “You?! But that’s impossible!”
THE KILLER: “No it’s not. I win.”
He brings the shovel down to bash her head in, but just before it makes contact we cut to black, with the caption TWELVE HOURS EARLIER. Let the mystery begin: who is the killer in the woods?
SO the mystery begins: Who is the killer in the woods? Twelve hours before, Ilsa parties her ass off at a friend’s cabin nearby. She and eight friends are here to celebrate their high school graduation. Once the party dies down, they decide to play Dead Body, a hide-and-seek/murder-mystery game. The game is going well until they discover that one player is ACTUALLY murdering them one by one. But who? Paranoia breaks loose, accusations fly, long-buried secrets come out. They turn against each other, form brittle alliances, just to survive. All the while, the murderer is still in their midst, gruesomely murdering them one by one. Finally, only two players remain for an epic final showdown where the killer is revealed!

From the hardworking production team and crew after running a successful 25k Kickstarter fund:
“We began production on July 21st. Each production day has brought many challenges, but our pre-production planning has been thorough. We have designed this production, each page of the script, each shot, to be as cost-effective as possible. The cast and crew have slept in tents, lived on set, and eaten as inexpensively as possible. This means that every dollar will go as far as possible.
The writers, producers, the director, and the cinematographer have proven track records. The film festival circuit is hard to predict but our team has years of official selections under their collective belt.
Investing in the arts is always a risk, but rest assured that your incentives will come on time and your money will be well spent.”

“Talking to myself one day while driving as my theatrical play was wrapping up, I thought, I’d really like to make a movie. 2 days later a friend calls about making a movie! After meeting, I really believed in how they felt about what they were doing. I saw the passion and dream they had shared for several years. I told them I would support them. I was more interested in the actual production and empowering them with what they needed financially than anything else. “The movie continues to outdo any expectations I may have had as a first time executive movie producer….great story, amazing cinematography, and how about the acting and those
special effects!”.” Jeff Wilson, Executive Producer
