Press Release:

October 30, 2008 – Starz Entertainment presents the world television premiere of Dead Space: Downfall, which will air on Encore Action Sunday, Nov. 2 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). The film, developed by Starz Media’s Film Roman (Starz Entertainment’s sister company), is a feature-length animated movie based on the highly anticipated game Dead Space from Electronic Arts that was released on Oct. 14. The movie was released on DVD by Starz Media’s Anchor Bay Entertainment on Oct. 28, just in time for Halloween.

“We are thrilled to have the world television premiere of Dead Space: Downfall on Encore Action,” said Nancy Silverstone, vice president of program acquisitions for Starz Entertainment. “The feature sets a new standard for animated horror that our audience will love. It provides the story thread from the comic books to the newly released game, using the background and sound design from the game and the same artistic spirit of the comic book series.”

The story begins with the Dead Space comic books. The feature picks up the plot where the original comic book series, written by Antony Johnston and illustrated by Ben Templesmith, ends and leads up to the beginning of the Dead Space game. The story focuses on the disturbing events aboard a futuristic mining spaceship, the USG Ishimura, after it pulls a mysterious artifact from a remote dig site on a planet in the far reaches of the galaxy. The artifact triggers the sudden invasion of a long-dormant alien presence, and the Ishimura crewmembers find themselves locked in a frantic struggle to survive.
