The Good Book w/SLIP

Type: New Blu-Ray

In the near future, the world’s population is forced to stay confined in their homes at all times. Due to the depleting ozone layer, those that venture outdoors quickly devolve into zombie-like, mutant “outsiders”. The GVC agency provides all complying citizens with their communication and entertainment needs through its government regulated internet. Joseph Cyrus is a door to door PC repairman, forced to brave the perils of the outside world in order to keep his GVC clients fully “connected”. During his travels, Joseph soon begins seeing visions of a God-like being that urges him to destroy the Internet using a homemade virus. Is Joseph losing his sanity, serving the whims of a higher power, or being tricked by the world’s greatest trickster?

The SOV feature debut from Drop Dead Films, a New Jersey based film collective formed by the innovative duo of writer / author Barry Gerdsen (The Between Time) and 3 time Emmy Award winning director / editor Matthew Giaquinto (Spider-Man, The Daily Show), The Good Book remains one of the most prophetic and imaginative, techno-horror epics to arise from the ‘90s micro-budget underground. Featuring an appearance by Bob Dorian (Evil Dead), special makeup FX by Fred Kraemer (John Wick 3, Vanilla Sky) and an energetic soundtrack featuring Saigon Kick and American Standard, The Good Book is an awe-inspiring mashup of inventive plot twists, practical splatter FX, and genuine atmospheric scares.
