Is death always permanent?

A haunting supernatural thriller starring and produced by Shane Carruth (Primer, Upstream Color), The Dead Center finds a mysterious "John Doe" waking in a body bag in a morgue and wandering into a psychiatric ward. There, he becomes the charge of a devoted doctor who is fascinated by the man's claims of being controlled by a "blackness" inside of him. Meanwhile, a curious medical examiner searches for clues investigating the man's disappearance. As the two men go deeper into John Doe's psychosis, they start to realize that the truth might be more sinister and ancient than they ever dared imagine. The Dead Center is a much-needed reminder that the most frightening moments can come from the most human of places.
