quietearth [Celluloid 11.13.08] post apocalyptic zombies news



We've been covering this flick for a while, going all the way back to February and while it's a bit low budget, the footage looks great and it also stars David Carradine, how can you go wrong with that? It's based on the acclaimed cult novel by David Moody and was recently picked up by sales agent Splotlight Pictures so let's hope we can get a screener soon. Here's a full synopsis:

"As the last autumn leaves slowly peel away from the trees, a mysterious airborne virus ravages the planet, and within a few hours billions die. Victims suffer horrific deaths as their internal organs liquefy, and whole towns’ expire within minutes. Soon cities become infested breeding grounds for the new apocalyptic virus. By the end of the first day there are only a handful of survivors.

A small group of ordinary strangers are soon forced to work together to stay alive. The survivors are lead by Michael (Dexter Fletcher “Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels”, “Doom”) a lonely soft ware consultant, and Carl (Dickon Tolson “Peak Practice”, “Eastenders”) an ill-tempered mechanic. When Michael and the survivors escape from the infested city to an isolated country house, they discover the real horror has only begun!

When the dead start to gruesomely reanimate the group have naive hopes that the “walkers”, or the “meat suites”, would decompose and simply fall apart but they discover the longer the reanimated corpses are alive the more they learn, the cleverer they get, the more aggressive and treacherous they become – the more they became killing machines.

When Phillip Evans (David Carradine “Kill Bill”, “Kung Fu”) is discovered as a lone survivor in the lifeless city, a new hope emerges, but nothing is as it seems in a world turned upside down, and hope soon turns into terror. In order to endure the winter each survivor must find the strength within themselves to fight their personal demons and find the courage to combat a war against the vicious dead. What follows is a shockingly clever adventure of survival, in a thrilling desolate world. This Autumn, the darkness will come!"

I really hope they haven't massacred the storey line. Unfortunately, most movies made from excellent books do.

Actually there was more to the story about zombies laying siege to a house. That was just one part of a group of survivors. I really enjoyed the books and to be honest they are fantastic. They not only tell you about survival but about why it started and what was going on.
