Nine Dead is an 2009 horror thriller film, directed by Chris Shadley, produced by Paula Hart and written by Patrick Wehe Mahoney. Filming began on July 6, 2008 and ended on July 27, 2008. The film spent several months without a distributor but has now been picked up by Fabrication Films and it had its US limited release on November 6, 2009. The film is scheduled for a March 9th 2010 DVD release.




The plot of the movie centers around nine seemingly unconnected strangers who have been kidnapped for one ultimate reason. The movie begins with the kidnapper abducting each person immediately as the movie starts. The nine people are handcuffed to poles in a room together with only one hope for release: figure out why they are all there.

Every 10 minutes, their abductor promises to kill one person unless that person knows his or her connection to the others. The movie unfolds to reveal the intricate web of connections and coincidences between them, and how each character played a role in their own abduction...

Spoiler Plot

The nine characters are revealed to be: 1 - a petty criminal, 2 - a police officer, 3 - a strip club owner and loan shark, 4 - a gun runner, 5 - a priest, 6 - a lawyer, 7 - a convenience store owner, 8 - a pedophile and rapist, 9 - a health insurance executive.

All of them confess to some of their worst sins as they try to figure out how they might have become a target for abduction and murder. As they pursue the truth, obstacles include the gun runner's refusal to cooperate, the convenience store owner's very rudimentary English, and the priest's oath never to reveal what has been told to him in confidence.

It eventually becomes clear that each of the nine abduction victims had a hand in sending an innocent young man to prison, where he contracted AIDS through prison rape. His health insurance denied coverage for an experimental drug that might have saved his life. His father has abducted the nine people he holds responsible for his son's death.

The remaining characters offer that answer to their abductor, who releases them. However, it's the lawyer who reveals herself to be the most dangerous character. She has admitted to falsifying evidence to convict the innocent young man, and to killing a man after he raped her. To keep the secrets she confessed, she kills the abductor and the other survivors and escapes... leaving "nine dead."
