Following on from the success of his brutal superhero movie Rendel, director Jesse Haaja has now started work on his next project, and it sounds it sounds like something right up our alley, because it’s a zombie movie described as a cross between “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” and the Resident Evil movies.
The female-driven film will be called Furrow, and whilst it has yet to enter principal photography, some proof of concept shots footage was shot in Finland during the month of February, and as you can see, the weather so cold that even the zombie looks frozen stiff. The still images below were taken by Haaja and Tero Saikkonen, the latter of whom served as the director of photography on both Rendel and Bunny the Killer Thing.
Because they rise from the swamps, the zombies in Furrow have been dubbed ‘Swombies’, which sounds like a term which won’t be going away anytime soon. Anyway, we’ll keep you updated as we learn more about Furrow, although you can find more information here.
Described as a cross between Ash Vs. Evil Dead and the Resident Evil film franchise, Furrow sees Laura, a young farm girl who accidentally releases unspeakable evil lurking in the swamps and is forced to fend off an entire army of swamp-zombies (or Swombies).
Farms, swamps and zombie killing action with a Scandinavian touch led by a badass female lead are just a portion of what Haaja promises.
