This holiday season, don’t expect gifts, but expect a zombie apocalypse.
In Dawning of the Dead, inspired by the late great George A. Romero, a virus causes the dead to reanimate brings the world to its knees and the scientist responsible entrusts his cataclysmic findings to Katya Nevin, a troubled ex-war correspondent turned anchor-woman at W.W News. While she and the rest of her crew witness the collapse of society via video feeds from around the globe, a deadly special agent climbs the building floor by floor, his only goal to ensure her silence. Armed only with information and an indomitable will to live, Katya must overcome her crippling anxiety and learn to lead in order to make it out of the studio and into a terrifying new world where only the dead survive.
The British zombie film stars Honey Holmes, Leo Gregory, Pixie Le Knot, and Sean Cronin. The film was a collaborative effort between filmmakers Tony Jopia, Nika Braun, Yannis Zafeiriou, and Alexander Zwart.
Uncork’d Entertainment will release Dawning of the Dead on Digital HD on December 5, followed by a DVD release on March 6, 2018.
