#SDCC17: Annual San Diego Zombie to Rise Up as a George Romero Remembrance Vigil

Published

on

Creepy Zombie

One of the staples of the San Diego Comic-Con has always been the shambling celebration of zombiedom known as Zombie Walk: San Diego. It was retired last year, but with the loss of our friend George A. Romero, this year it’s going to be something much more.

Via the George Romero Remembrance Vigil Facebook Event Page:

Our first SDCC walk, in 2007, was held in honor of George’s appearance at Comic-Con. Quite simply, we owe our existence and continued love of all things zombie to him. We would be remiss if we did not offer his fans a way to come together and show their love and gratitude for the many fantastic films he provided us over the years.

Please join us on Saturday, July 22nd, at 8:00 PM PT for a brief remembrance vigil at Children’s Park, located on the Martin Luther King Promenade (look for the large fountains across from the Marriott Marquis & Marina). We invite you to share your memories and stories of George Romero and how he’s positively influenced your life, as well as join us for a 77-second moment of silence to honor George’s incomparable genius.

LED candles and glow sticks (especially green) are encouraged and welcomed; however, please leave all REAL candles at home. No open flame will be allowed, for safety reasons. Zombie attire is obviously also encouraged, but not required.

As a living dead alumnus and friend to this great, unforgettable man, I will be speaking there at 8:00 PM on George’s behalf as a means to help the group celebrate his memory. If you’re there and want to pay your respects to the master, please come down, join us, and say hello.

80’s Throwback EXPOSURE Gets Awesome Trailer and Poster

Published

on

Featuring practical effects-based creature designs and a special appearance by horror legend Lynn Lowry, Austin Snell’s Exposure is a throw-back horror experience in the vein of your favorite 70’s and 80’s classics.

And today we have the film’s trailer and poster for your viewing pleasure. You can check out the poster to the right and the trailer below along with some quotes from the film’s director, Austin Snell.

Exposure was self-financed within Sunrunner Films and filmed almost entirely on location in the beautiful city of Leadville, Colorado,” Snell said in a statement. “The production lived and slept in the cabin where the movie was shot, cooking their own meals and working together around the clock for three weeks. All of the effects were designed practically, including full-body creature suits.”

He continues: “It was old-school, independent horror filmmaking. Back in our home state of Kansas, the team finished off production by filming a cameo with horror icon Lynn Lowry. It was a sincere pleasure to work with Lynn, whose talents affected so many of the films and careers that inspired this very movie. She belongs in a film like this.”

What do you think of Adam Snell’s Exposure thus far? Make sure to let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The film is directed by Austin Snell from a script written by Snell and Jake Jackson and stars Carmen Anello, Owen Lawless (Helltown), and Lynn Lowry (Shivers, The Crazies, I Drink Your Blood, Model Hunger). The film features special effects via Jake Jackson and is produced by Jackson, Snell, and Clayton Ashley.

Synopsis:

In an attempt to reconcile the problems in their relationship, Myra and James venture to an isolated cabin in the mountains. It is there they encounter an ancient evil that haunts the landscape, capable of turning people into deformed monsters. Not only will they be fighting for their relationship, they will be fighting for their lives.
