You should know by now that Brandon Slagle’s Dead Sea is a monster film, but thankfully the full length trailer is keeping the beast well hidden. Instead the trailer focuses on the films plot and dastardly deeds, and the monster simply lurks in the background with an strong sense of menace. You know its there, you know when the film arrives you will get to see it, but saving the best for last is always the best way!
Sadly we missed this trailer when it was released two weeks ago, so today we make up for it and present it to you in all its glory. Check out the impressive trailer for Dead Sea below.

THE LOCH NESS MONSTER, OGOPOGO, THE WHITE RIVER MONSTER, LUKWATA – these mythical creatures have captured the imaginations of people the world over…and also tested their fears.
However, all legends have some basis in FACT.
2002 – Afghanistan, American troops KIER THAN and CASTOR POLLUX investigate the disappearance of a squadron of SEALS over a reservoir near the Afghan border. The disappearance is attributed to a “serpent beast” which is said to re-appear every thirty years in various areas of the planet to feed. Though their initial instinct is to brush off the story and investigate further, they have a special connection to this “beast”.
Present Day, Southern California – Castor and Kier – back at home and now involved in various miscreant activities in the region – witness what to many may be an unexplained phenomena – the mass of water that the town which they call home is located on is experiencing the drastic dying off of its marine life. The state is called in and a specialist named Victoria Amissus – herself a native of the
town – is called in to investigate.
However, Castor and Kier know what is actually going on – they know that this great serpent has returned to their home, and now must prepare the town for their “offering”.
