Dead Air: Review

Dead Air: Review

Do you like rock bands, scary creatures and British humour? Then you’ll LOVE Geoff Harmer’s Dead Air. The film centres on girl rock-band Monster Kitten, who are on a plane travelling to their next gig. Unbeknownst to them, there is a mysterious Japanese crate in the hold with some very strange sounds coming out of it…

The little critters that are eventually unleashed are actually lovingly made puppets which make for a fun little film Theres a particularly wonderful moment where The Bassist (played hilariously by Kate Davis-Speak) whacks one of the creatures with her guitar which made me chuckle. 

It’s Josie and The Pussycats feel injected with thoroughly British punk girls makes for a very silly dynamic. There’s also some wonderful use of animation which shows that one can pack a lot of different techniques into a low budget short.

And guess who’s driving this bad-luck plane? Terry from the Inbetweeners who adds some extra banter. (That’s veteran British TV actor David Schall btw, you’ve probably seen him in at least two of your favourite shows). 

Geoff Harmer and writer Peter Hearn have created a very interesting concept here, and we here at BRWC are looking forward to a feature film announcement, or TV mini-series… maybe? You can do it Geoff!
