Years ago, Fred Nash was the victim of a fatal car accident that left not only Fred but his 9-year-old son dead. A few seconds after his death, he came back to life in the hospital. Since this traumatic accident, he has acquired the ability to see the dead. These abilities help set Nash apart from other Los Angeles police force members.
In a murder case a country away, Fred is called on to lend his assistance. The property caretaker at the abandoned Dalton estate in Flint, Michigan, has been killed. Not long after Nash arrives at the estate, it becomes clear that something very sinister and supernatural has occurred in the old house, and Freddy’s investigation takes some very unexpected twists and turns.
Written and directed by Bron Theron and Joe Schipani, who had written the book Haunted Flint, “Half Dead Fred” stars Hollywood veteran Corin Nemec (“Stargate SG-1,” “Parker Lewis Can’t Lose”) will star as Freddy Nash with Jordan Cristopher Michael (“Full House,” “Saved by the Bell”) as Yamasaki.
