The announcement came a couple of days ago that The Collective and Bloody Disgusting would be distributing little seen horror flicks theatrically via AMC Theaters, and now one of them even has a release date … the German zombie-fest known as Rammbock (review here).
Breaking up can be a bitch, but trying to reconcile in a city full of walking dead can really add complications to an already difficult relationship. Filmmakers Marvin Kren and Benjamin Hessler have given us Germany’s first foray into the Zombie genre, Rammbock, an unlikely tale of love, terror, and survival set against the dystopic backdrop of a zombie-infested Berlin.
From the Press Release
The Collective, a full-service entertainment management and content company, along with AMC Theatres (AMC), a leading theatrical and exhibition company, and popular horror website BloodyDisgusting.com, recently announced a film distribution partnership dedicated to acquiring and marketing the best horror and thriller titles from the festival and international markets.
The Collective has acquired the rights to several films out of horror- and genre-heavy festivals such as the Toronto International Film Festival, the Berlin International Film Festival, Slamdance, Sitges Film Festival, and Fantastic Fest and plans on releasing the films across multiple platforms.
AMC will show a new title in the series each month, at least twice a week, across 32 key markets, including a special Friday midnight show, beginning in May. After their theatrical exhibition at AMC, films from the series will be available to fans of the genre on DVD, Video on Demand (VOD), online, and television. Released though The Collective’s home-video partnership with Vivendi Universal, DVDs for titles in the Bloody Disgusting series will feature unrated content, bonus features, and special packaging for each title.
Heartbroken and clueless, Michael (Michael Fuith) arrives in Berlin to win back the affections of brooding ex-girlfriend Gabi (Anka Graczyk). But he’s in for a little disappointment: She’s not home, and the city is rapidly overrun by bloodthirsty hordes of zombiefied Berliners. His only companion? The plucky Harper (Theo Trebs, “The White Ribbon”), a teenage plumber’s apprentice at work in the apartment complex. From their overnight redoubt in Gabi’s bedroom, the unlikely duo must escape the infested building, outwit the undead, and find her…before it’s too late. Rammbock is hide and seek…with zombies!
Look for Rammbock in theatres on May 4th.
