Galesberg, Illinois is a quiet, peaceful college town where nothing ever happens… until a brutal serial killer begins a terrifying campaign targeting local teens.As fear mounts, Police Chief John Brady (Michael Murphy) begins to suspect a link between the gruesome crimes and a series of secret experiments being carried out in the College’s psychology department.Written by Oscar winner Bill Condon (“Gods and Monsters”), directed by Michael Laughlin (“Strange Invaders”) and featuring an original score by Tangerine Dream, “Dead Kids” is an 80s cult fave with all the right horror ingredients: small town teens, brutal murders, mysterious experiments and an infamous syringe-in-the-eyeball scene.
