It’s been over a year since we got an update on Patrick Horvath’s Die-ner (get it?), but today actor Daniel Schweiger, who plays a sheriff in the indie zombie flick, dropped us a line with some news.
In addition to launching a new trailer, which you can check out below, the film will be showing at two horror fests this month, first at the Big Bear Horror Film Festival on October 17th, and then in the wilds of LA at the Arclight on October 24th at 9 PM as part of the Hollywood Film Festival.
Die-ner (get it?) “explores the existential dilemma of a sociopath killer who runs into the unique problem of his victims rising from the dead.
It’s business as usual for Ken, our hero and killer carte blanche, as he comes upon a diner in the middle of nowhere. After promptly dispatching the waitress and cook, Ken marks another notch on his belt as he prepares to continue on his wayward journey. As luck would have it, a young married couple arrives, Rob and Kathy, who are in the middle of a long trip on the road as well as a relationship on the rocks. The three are then greeted by the only regular who frequents the defunct diner, local sheriff Duke Burdett.
It would seem as though Ken has his job cut out for him (the pun is intended), playing a rousing game of cat and mouse with the sheriff as his suspicions become aroused. Just when the game is tuning up, all hell promptly breaks loose as the cook and waitress begin walking around … again. Tickled pink with curiosity, Ken holds the couple and, now wounded, sheriff captive as he tries to figure out what to do with these newest ex-patriots of life.”
