The Emmy Award winning team behind the hilarious "FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS" make the transition from comedy to feature film in the upcoming spoof horror, "DIAGNOSIS DEATH", which will be released on DVD on 3rd August 2009.

Brought to you by Academy Award winners Christian Rivers ("LORD OF THE RINGS", "KING KONG") and Mike Hedges ("LORD OF THE RINGS", "WORLD'S FASTEST INDIAN") as well as the hilarious trio from "FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS" (Brett McKenzie, Rhys Darby and Jemaine Clement); this slick comedy horror makes a riotous and gruesome nod at Peter Jackson's ("LORD OF THE RINGS") early films.

"DIAGNOSIS DEATH" is the irreverent tale of two people undergoing a radical treatment for cancer. Locked in a medical facility over a weekend as guinea pigs for a drug trial, they discover that the clinic may pose more harm than good. The drugs cause hallucinations. Or is the clinic really haunted? Struggling with their senses, they must team up to unravel a spooky mystery.
