A suicide victim is brought to a hospital somewhere in Middle America. But hardly has the autopsy been performed and the body been put in the morgue or the man in question wakes up in a screaming fit. He remembers zilch from his past, not even his own moniker. All this intrigues psychiatrist Edward Graham, who takes pity on him and tries to get him to talk. In the meantime though, a medical examiner is unaware of these latest developments and starts looking for the missing body. As both men, each in his own way, try to get to the bottom of the case, it gets a sinister dimension. The amnesiac awakes from his catatonic condition and claims to be the instrument of a mysterious, murderous force… THE DEAD CENTER could be the third instalment of a special BIFFF trilogy of morgue-set mysteries, with THE CORPSE OF ANNA FRITZ (BIFFF 2016) and THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE (BIFFF 2017) as the previous entries. It is an excruciatingly slow but scorchingly intense cross of body horror and psychological thriller. Among the actors, we recognize Shane Carruth (SWISS ARMY MAN) and Poorna Jagannathan (BIG LITTLE LIES, MILE 22, THE CIRCLE).
