Whilst cleaning out his recently deceased mother’s home, William (Kevin Hicks) stumbles across some belongings of his father, who died when William was a boy. Among his father’s things, he discovers an old HAM radio and, fascinated, attempts to use it. Over the airwaves, he stumbles upon a strange woman, Eva (Vickie Hicks) who suffers from paranoia and agoraphobia, and hides a dark secret of her own. Wary at first they slowly strike up a distant friendship with their respective radios as the only thread that connects them.
However Eva isn’t the only thing that comes to him through the radio. Something desperate has stirred, attempting to reach William, to take hold of him and pull him into the shadow world of memories best left forgotten. The two worlds collide, and William is rushed down a path that is paved with deceit, lies and an awful truth, a truth that pulls him into a world of darkness from which he cannot escape.
This marks the fifth film for Kevin Hicks in partnership with his wife Vickie whose collaborative body of work includes ‘Paranormal Proof’, ‘Behind the Door’, Doppel’, and ‘The Forever Room’). ‘Dead Air’ also stars Chris Xaver, Lucca Iocovetti, Madison Skodzinsky, Mackenzie Skodzinsky, and Bruce Levitt. Kevin and Vickie Hicks had this to say about their latest film;
“In addition to interesting and complex characters, Dead Air’s story will surprise everyone, as one twist leads to another,” said filmmakers Vickie Hicks and Kevin Hicks. “It was exciting for us to explore what we could do with a haunted radio, and the consequences of talking to strangers.”
'Dead Air' will be available on VOD across the US from 19th February and you can pre-order from iTunes now.
