We’ve been talking about The ReZort for quite a while now, and finally those of us here in North America will be able to see it for ourselves! The film is heading to all major VOD platforms on Tuesday, January 17th, following its North American premiere at Toronto After Dark this past October.
Jurassic World meets “The Walking Dead” in The ReZort, releasing on all major digital platforms in North America on January 17, 2017, courtesy of Content Media.
Starring Dougray Scott, Jessica De Gouw, Martin McCann, Elen Rhys, Claire Goose, and Jassa Ahluwalia, The ReZort is a horror film offering a fresh twist on the zombie genre. It is the third feature from director Steve Barker (Outpost, Outpost: Black Sun) and was written by Paul Gerstenberger.
After an almost-apocalyptic zombie outbreak, humans have won the war and are exploring how humanity can recover after such a huge percentage of the population has been wiped out. Humankind finally has the upper hand, but Melanie, who lost her entire family, is still deeply traumatized. In a bid to overcome the demons of her past, she goes on a zombie safari retreat. It is the ultimate in therapeutic revenge.
The ReZort is actually a highly controlled and monitored environment with a maze of concealed security cameras, restraints, and barriers. The eyes and ears of trained security personnel are on the guests 24/7, ensuring a safe shooting distance between the living and the undead–that is, until the resort’s security system is hacked and a computer virus crashes it, potentially unleashing thousands of bloodthirsty zombies back into the wild.
