Next week sees the release of REDCON-1, the latest in our DREAD library! Best described as “28 Weeks Later with martial arts”, the film comes from the mind of director Chee Keong Cheung as well as Steve Horvath and Mark Strange. The film is a powerhouse of explosive action and thrilling zombie horror and we can’t wait for you all to see it!
To celebrate the impending release, we’ve got a clip from the Blu-ray’s special features that highlights 10 zombie designs that didn’t make the final cut. Since a lot of work was put into these creatures, we didn’t want to leave them on the cutting room floor. Check out the clip above and the trailer below!
“A government experiment is unleashed, releasing a mutated genetic virus which amplifies and enhances human abilities. Amidst pandemic chaos, humanity is reborn as a stronger, faster, far more deadly creature; an evolutionary backlash that creates a new breed of killing machine.
As the military loses ground against the onslaught, preparations are made to launch a final strike against an infection they know they cannot contain or conquer; a cleansing of both infected and human alike.“
REDCON-1 stars Oris Erhuero, Carlos Gallardo, Mark Strange, Katarina Leigh Waters, Martyn Ford, and Joshua Dickinson. It was produced by Carlos Gallardo (Desperado, Once Upon a Time in Mexico), Stephen L’Heureux (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), and Kevin Eastman, co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and publisher of Heavy Metal, as well as Ioanna Karavela and Mark Strange.
Pre-orders are available via Epic Pictures.
