NEW ZOMBIE FILM, “THE HELL PATROL” TO BE RELEASED SPRING 2009 “Fight to Live!”
13th Generation Productions has begun post production on “The Hell Patrol”, a short subject film, dealing with the zombocalypse and its survivors. It is to be released in Spring 2009. The film is produced by Steve Romanko for 13th Generation Productions and directed by Turner Van Ryn. The film stars Pisha Warden as Lt. Sandy Fletcher, Scott Levy as Sgt. Mark Daniels, Kurt Yaeger as Private Steven Mcwatt, Tony Grat as Cpl. Chopper and James Hiser as Major Karl Brickhaus.
Heavily influenced by George Romero, The novel “World War Z” and “The Walking Dead” graphic novel series, Director Van Ryn and Producer Romanko weave a tale of defeat and redemption in the face of an enemy that will never stop. Lt. Sandy Fletcher leads her squad of beat up “Hell Patrollers” across a post-zombalyptic California, wading through their own failures and the unstoppable waves of the undead, trying to get back to the safe city of San Francisco. The film has wrapped principal photography in Modesto, California and is currently in post production.
13th Generation Productions shot 13 days of its upcoming short in the Olive City. Set outside Modesto and filmed on the outskirts of town on Valley Vista Drive, The Hell Patrol draws from both zombie and war films as Lt. Sandi Fletcher, played by Pisha Warden, guides a troop of soldiers on a mission to reclaim the countryside in a world overrun with the undead. Romanko and Van Ryn wanted to take what is a horror film and turn it into something that has a bit more social commentary.
