We all know that the industry is saturated with flicks. So what do you do when you have a zombie tale to tell and don’t want to be chastised for adding to the pile? Well, you can either make a zomcom, like Warm Bodies, or you make a movie about biological or chemical warfare, which renders people zombie-like, but you don’t say that in your film.
I don’t know how writer/Christopher Roosevelt felt about putting another zombie flick on the market, but judging from the trailer, it seems he wanted to make a zombie movie without saying that it’s a zombie movie. At any rate, you looks terribly delicious and might even borrow a bit from The Crazies.
Horror films often take their cue from daily newspaper headlines, feeding on the all-too-real fears of the everyday world – such as terrorist attacks. Like the best science fiction, sometimes horror lies just around the corner or beyond the bend of what we know.
On July 30th, Anchor Bay Films unleashes the biological warfareThe Demented on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and DVD. From the creative minds behind I Spit on Your Grave and A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Demented is a terrifying excursion into a plague-infected world… where one moment off-guard is all that keeps us from becoming them.
With a hot cast including Sarah Butler (I Spit on Your Grave), Brittney Alger (21 Jump Street), Kayla Ewell (The Vampire Diaries), Richard Kohnke (The Carrie Diaries), and Michael Welch (The Twilight Saga Franchise), The Demented will have you on the edge of your seat until the very last frame!
The Demented official synopsis:
The Demented follows six college friends as they meet up for a carefree weekend in a beautiful rural home. A terrorist missile attack in a nearby town infects much of the townspeople with a deadly virus that induces rabies-like symptoms… with devastating consequences. Ravenous and fast, the infected townspeople turn their sights on the vacation home where the friends are gathered… and are now barricaded. How long can they hide? Even with the infected “sleeping” in the streets, can they make their escape? If so, to what?
