The highly anticipated indie zombie film (it was apparently voted third most anticipated zombie film behind Land of the Dead and Resident Evil 3 at moviesonline.ca) officially wrapped in the US last week.
The Frame By Frame and Red Trac Productions (in association with Jackalope Entertainment) project was filmed on HD (the Sony CineAlta HD 900 for all you techy-nerds) and stars GiGi Erneta, Joseph Thackery, Jason Harper, and Steven Lee. The film features a couple in the fight to save their young daughter in a city of the undead. The tagline reads ‘When the dead have risen, some things are more important than survival.’
A trailer will appear towards the end of May and it is hoped that the film will be released in September or October this year. All rights are currently available as Risen is still in talks with multiple distributors.
www.horror-movies.ca have posted an exclusive photo gallery, and undeadfilms.com has also been following the production of this film throughout its shoot, with many exclusive photos and interviews.
For Sam Mills(Joseph Thackery), his wife Jenny (Gigi Erneta, El Chupacabra, Crossed, Raptor) and his brother Nick (Jason Harper,) the dawn of a new day in suburbia quickly becomes hell on earth when an army of flesh-eating dead invades. With their infant daughter suddenly lost in a city abandoned by the living and ruled by the dead, Sam and Jenny embark on a desperate mission to find her. When the rising tide of the dead forces them into a makeshift rescue station under the rule of a lone Texas Ranger (Steven Lee) and besieged by ravenous hordes, they fight to prove that a parent's love for a child is a force not even the undead can stop.
