THE VIDEO DEAD - OFFICIAL PUBLIC SAFETY NOTICE

The Video Dead is known to many people as a 1987 direct-to-VHS, low budget movie about a possessed TV set that only plays one thing: An old black and white zombie movie called "Zombie Blood Nightmare". In the middle of the night, the TV comes to life, releasing zombies into the real world where they're bent on gory mayhem.

Called genius by some and terrible by others, The Video Dead remains one of the most talked about low-budget movies of its era.  Regardless of who is right, one undisputed fact remains: "The Video Dead" was based on a true story. The TV is real. IT HAS NEVER BEEN RECOVERED AND DESTROYED. THERE MAY BE UP TO 113 ADDITIONAL PARANORMAL INFECTED TV SETS IN EXISTENCE.

If you own a pre-flat screen TV set similiar to the one in the movie, you are strongly urged to check if it was manufactured by TeleNovaStar, S.A. and has serial number ITL-1965-MIL-2T-0028739 through ITL-1965-MIL-2T-0028852.

Please check any old TV sets that you might be storing in your basement, barn or garage. If one is found that was manufactured by TeleNovaStar, S.A. within the serial number range above, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPERATE, DISASSEMBLE OR OTHERWISE INVESTIGATE IT. Your life and the lives of those around you could be endangered. You should immediately contact the Institute for the Study of the Occult in Austin, Texas using the contact page on this website and indicate you have a TeleNovaStar with a serial number published in the Public Safety Notice. You will be contacted back by paranormal investigators immediately regardless of the day of the week or time of day. Your report will remain completely confidential.

If you would like to be a volunteer and offer assistance in the efforts to recover the TeleNovaStar, S.A. TV sets, we ask that you begin by using the social media links on this site to help share this warning with others.
