Another movie making its debut at the Film4 FrightFest is the new African zombie flick The Dead from co-directors Howard J. Ford and Jonathan Ford. Why are we so excited? Do we really need to say more than African zombies? Get ready to chew on a new making-of video!
“Hopefully it gives people an insight on what a fucking nightmare it was trying to get even one shot of ‘The Dead’ in the can out there in Africa, let alone an entire move!” says director Howard Ford.
The North American premiere of The Dead will take place on September 24th at Fantastic Fest in Austin. The second featurette promises more gore! Watch for that soon.
An American mercenary, the sole survivor of a plane crash, has to run the gauntlet across Africa, battling with the living dead. Joining forces with a local military man, desperately searching for his son amongst the chaos, they fight together to survive in the first zombie road movie set against the stunning backdrop of Africa.
Shot on locations in Burkina Faso and Ghana, West Africa.
