Zombie Outbreak Film Festival News

300.jpgOK, I just wanted to let people know whats going on with Zombie Outbreak we are doing in November. First of all, we are not going to be able to show Poultrygeist and have Lloyd as a guest. Sorry about that… we really wanted him here and to show the film but for several reasons we are not going to be able to. One of those reasons, (and I kid you not), was the amount of emails we received about the fact that we took Return of the Living Dead off the lineup and replaced it with Poultrygeist. Most all of the emails were bad, and some of them really put us in our place! Really… It looks like you guys and gals love that classic, so we will be bringing that one back in the lineup, along with several other great films.

Our goal with these film festival is to showcase some great indie horror. Along with having a classic movie thrown in there just to please you horror freaks!

Check out the lineup so far and some of the guests that will be at the fest as well. More films and other fun stuff coming later!

The Return of the Living Dead
When a bumbling pair of employees at a medical supply warehouse accidentally release a deadly gas into the air, the vapors cause the dead to re-animate as they go on a rampage through Louisville, Kentucky seeking their favorite food, brains.

Zombie Girl the Movie
Emily Hagins is making a zombie movie. Itís feature-length, itís bloody, and the zombies donít run. Just like it should be. But thereís one difference between her film and every other zombie movie youíve ever seen: Emily is twelve.

ZOMBIE GIRL: THE MOVIE is the documentary from Bob B. Bob Productions, Vacdoomed Productions, and Part Olson Pictures that chronicles the making of Emily’s zombie film, Pathogen.

Collin
Our hero Colin is bitten by a Zombie; he dies and returns from the dead. We follow him as he wanders through suburbia during the throes of a cadaverous apocalypse. (yes this is the $70 Cannes hit!)

Zombiemania
Zombiemania chronicles the evolution of the zombie from its roots in Haitian Voodoo to its coveted role as the worldís most popular monster. From blundering cadaver to cannibalistic killer, the zombieís come a long way in 70 years. Zombiemania looks at the rising tide of zombie culture and examines the reasons why something so dead has so much life in our nightmares and at the box office.
