In-person Q&A following the screening with director Clay Tatum

A misanthropic struggling photographer just wants to watch TV and eat candy while his wife is out of town.  While taking photos out in a park, Clay happens upon his long-lost friend, Whit. After a night of catching up, Whit discloses an unsettling secret to Clay, which puts a strain on his marriage and causes him to question his own sanity.

Slamdance 2022 Audience Award Winner was directed, written and stars Clay Tatum, alongside co-writer and cast member Whitmer Thomas. A heartfelt buddy story with a supernatural angle, THE CIVIL DEAD offers a very funny and very charming twist on the horror indie comedy.
