Best. Title. Graphics. Ever.

Very difficult to find, and that’s not entirely a bad thing; while Gallagher’s more recent films (Gorotica, Gore Whore, et al.) have gained a warranted cult following, his first movie, Dead Silence, is just not up to the same level of…whatever it is that makes Gallagher’s movies worth your time. Not much in the way of story, horrible acting, low-budget effects, even bad film stock. If you’re a Gallagher nut, of course, you’re going to end up seeking this out, and more power to you, but for everyone else, there’s absolutely nothing here to recommend it. *
