The Dead & The Damned is a western/horror crossover genre movie. This trailer was built from the ground-up with specific focus on the horror aspects of the movie. This is not the ‘red band’ version of the trailer so it doesn’t go overboard but teases the gore. An even tamer MPAA approved version of this edit was added to the home video and VOD release.

With their guidance I developed as an interdisciplinary filmmaker and exercised my love for cinema.
