It’s rare that we get to see a tale that shows, even just briefly, the genesis for the outbreak. You do get to see the beginning in the trailer for zombie epic State of Emergency, directed by Turner Clay (Interception) and starring Jay Hayden (A ’s Heart), Tori White (Silent Night), and Andy Stahl (The Blind Side).
While the trailer makes it clear that the film barrows from many classics in the zombie genre, it still looks terrifying and compelling, and the camera work looks incredible.
State of Emergency synopsis:
After an explosion unleashes the contents of a military bio-weapons plant, the unsuspecting populace of Montgomery County is transformed into a roaming army of flesh-eating. Trapped in the quarantine zone, Jim finds himself cut off, confused and fighting for his own survival. Contacted by a small band of others unaffected by the toxins, Jim sets out to reach their besieged warehouse. Becoming the survival group’s de-facto leader, he struggles to keep order as they hunker down, fortify their stronghold, and arm themselves against the attacking mutants. Fragmentary radio reports from outside hint at a last-ditch government rescue plan.
But can the survivors hold out until help arrives… or will they succumb to the living hell of an undead apocalypse? Will anybody survive?
Image Entertainment will make State of Emergency available on DVD and digital download on April 16, 2013. Special features include two behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the movie and its visual effects, and deleted scenes.
