The Dead Inside
The upcoming British indie zombie feature The Dead Inside is fresh off filming and ankle-deep in post-production. Taking a break from putting the finishing touches on the film, writer/director Andrew Gilbert and actor Simon Mathews gave Dread Central an exclusive interview as to just what goes into making a zombie film on a shoestring budget.
And the praise continues to come in for director Mike Flanagan's stunning atmospheric thriller Absentia as the film nabbed the Grand Jury prize during the 2011 Shriekfest Film Festival awards ceremony last night, closing out the Shriekfest's four-day celebration of the world of independent horror.
In the horror musical The Dead Inside, we meet tortured young lovers Wes and Fi, and while their love for each other burns strong, artistically their hearts have been locked in a box for years. Wes is a burned out photographer paying the bills by shooting weddings, and Fi is the writer's blocked author of a series of zombie novellas called "The Dead Survive."
As first proved by Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video and more recently in the incredible stage production of Re-Animator: The Musical, even the living dead can shake that thang when the proper time arises. True, if they shake it too hard, it may just drop off, but still!
