Buffalo, New York’s award-winning DefTone Pictures Studios has been busy this year. In addition to releasing controversial grindhouse series Black Guy on a Rampage and commencing its upcoming epic alien invasion film Ombis, they’ve announced a secret weapon: Caged.
From the Press Release:
Do you ever wonder how the first zombie is created? Caged promises to tell that story. Caged stars Robert Bozek (Slime City Massacre, The Final Night and Day) and Patrick Mallett (Black Guy on a Rampage, The Final Night and Day). Mr. March (Bozek) wakes up, locked in a cage, suffering from temporary amnesia. As he tries to figure out his surroundings, the events of the past hours begin to haunt him in a series of flashbacks. Mr. March tries to pull the clues together to get out of the cage alive: a biohazard canister, blood sprayed against the walls, and a dead body nearby on the floor. A pistol lies just out of reach near an open briefcase. But why? Mr. March must overcome the terror that has been unleashed around him and find a way out of the cage.
Director and co-writer of the project Adam R. Steigert had this to say about the production “Caged is a very interesting project, a zombie film with a twist. Unlike a lot of the zombie films that focus on carnage, our story focuses on the real terror that one man goes through while placed in a situation. But don’t get me wrong… there is still some good carnage!”
Caged special effects makeup artist Phill Beith says, “Working on Caged was a fun experience! I get the call from Adam (Steigert) on a Monday and literally three days later we’re on set filming this unique zombie flick. A very good experience while gearing up to film Ombis.”
DefTone Pictures’ release date for Caged is October 1st, 2012. It will also be available for digital download October 28th after its initial theatrical screening. A release date for the DVD will also be in October of 2012. Special features will include an exclusive scene from DefTone Pictures Studios’ next film, Ombis, which stars Richard Satterwhite, Jason John Beebe, Sara Manzella, and special guest star Melyssa Jade.
