Filmmaker Thomas J. Churchill provided us an exclusive first look at the new trailer, behind-the-scenes video, and stills for his upcoming and ambitious zombie/period feature Lazarus last night, and we think you should have a look at the film’s sexy, 1950’s goodness.
Set in 1957 Hollywood, writer/director Churchill’s Lazarus revolves around the character of George Lazarus (Ray Capuana), an insurance investigator who schedules routine interviews with twelve employees of the Deadly Sin Cigarette Company upon receipt of a rather suspicious insurance claim. In the process he learns that all twelve had recently been fired for being sick at the job, and then subsequently and without a trace, he disappears. Two weeks later, with Lazarus now a missing person, his heart-sick fiancée, Bethany Loomis (Natalie Victoria), along with Chip (Kevin Franklin), undertakes the task of finding him. By retracing his steps, she learns that what was initially regarded as a simple fraud investigation case may actually be the beginning of the end of the human race.
Produced by Churchill and David M. Parks with cinematography by Wolfgang Meyer, Lazarus additionally stars Stephen Geoffreys (Fright Night), Brooke Lewis (iMurders), Josh Hammond (Jeepers Creepers 2), James Duval (Sushi Girl), Brian Andrews (Halloween), Janet Tracy Keijser (House on Haunted Hill), Kenneth J. Hall (The Puppet Master), Krista Grotte and Taylor Morgan Lewis. Roy Knyrim’s SOTA FX provides the special effects, with Clayton Brickert and Robert Giddens assisting.
Intended as the first in a trilogy, Churchill is aiming for a theatrical release for Lazarus. Stay tuned for more, and in the interim visit the official Lazarus website and “like” Lazarus on Facebook.
