The zombie menace is alive (sort of) and well, and they’re ready to savage humans everywhere in the upcoming flick Escaping the Dead, which is coming at us all the way from Copenhagen. We have a look at the first stills for you here!
Directed by Martin Sonntag and Bastian Brinch Pedersen, the film, which is still shooting, stars Pedersen along with Rama Øzel, Daniel Hutera, Ali Öezkan, Iben Ma Bønnelycke, Nicolai Huan Nguyen, Camilla Ludvigsen, and Kim Sønderholm.
“The film is inspired by a series of articles about the death drug “Krokodil” that was published about the same period of time when Ronald Poppo had his face eaten by a naked man hooked on bath salt in Miami,” says co-director Martin Sonntag. “We saw it as the perfect zombie plot: a death drug that turns people into zombies.The film has its starting point on a typical day for the lead character, David. David is the local marihuana pusher, but he is the kind of dealer that smokes more than he sells. In the meantime the country has been hit by a new death drug, and when David and his partner in crime Ahmir [are] offered some exceptionally cheap cocaine, they see it as an opportunity to earn big money at the big techno concert the following Friday, but the cocaine turns out to have a terrible side effect that creates a giant zombie outbreak that spreads across Copenhagen. In the film we follow David and his bloody fight out of the city.”
