quietearth [Celluloid 06.09.09] post apocalyptic zombies movie trailer news



We reported on the trailer back in April and producer Casey Barteau just got in touch with us to let us know about this fake tv spot and some more details on the project. And for the details, I'll let Casey explain in his own words:

What we want to do with this movie is recreate, as closely as possible, the aesthetic of being thirteen and watching that s****y-ass B-Horror that you recorded on VHS (over cherished home videos, of course) off of Joe Bob Briggs' Drive-In Theater or something. And we made it take place in what we refer to as "The 80's Future" (like 1994 as seen from 1987, for example), because we love how watching a movie like DEMOLITION MAN today (which has "future" events taking place in the mid-90s) gives their world this weird sense of humor and detachment, automatically upping the camp-factor (as if after the whole Taco Bell plot background, campiness needed to be upped at all). More or less, we wanted to make one of those wonderfully-awful movies that we loved so much back then. So, the film itself will be made to look like an old recorded tape, with those VHS flaws and artifacts that we dealt with so much back in the day (which explains the "poor" video quality that the trailer achieves).

And just to get that crappy 80s feel, they exported this tv spot through vhs a couple of times. Yay! Release is tentatively planned for later this year, possibly Halloween or Christmas.

The year is..."80's future". The world is in shambles. A bitter and desolate place. The zombie apocalypse has been devouring the world for nearly 7 years. Now, the powers that be think the suffering should end - so the ultimate weapon is sent to earth. The Zombie Christ.

Those that fight alongside him have become his apostles, and together - they attempt to rid the world of zombies. But who believes, and who is along for the ride? Each with their own destinies, the Zombie Christ guides them across the godforsaken land as he walks directly towards his own.


TV spot after the break.
