So my mom calls me the other day and says “I was a biker chick zombie in a movie.” Which a) shows how awesome my mom is and b) shows she knows exactly what I want to hear when I pick up the phone. Of course I get curious, how was my mom in a zombie movie? Well the answer lies with director/writer/actor Jeremy Gardner (the bearded one in the above cast/crew picture) who decided that he and his intrepid crew were going to take a DSLR, spend 15 days and only $6,000 and shoot what looks to me to be a fun zombie film. Normally I cringe at independent zombie films, but bolstered by my mom’s stories (I know I am a little biased here) of Gardner being nice to the extras on set and being a generally nice guy (always nice to see in a director) I decided to check out their newly released trailer. While really it is just a demo reel of film (set to an amazing soundtrack) I thought it was worth while enough to share here. This looks like a film that people put a lot of heart and soul into (much like my last Trailer Thursday pick) and I dig the creepy rural area vibe. Plus there is finally a zombie movie that was shot in the town I grew up in. The film follows two former baseball players Ben and Mickey on the road months after an outbreak. The film recently wrapped and is currently in post production and I am very excited to see what comes out, and not just because my mom is a flesh eating ghoul.
Also there are no fast zombies in sight.
