In Revelation Trail, a frontier preacher's life is destroyed when a gruesome power consumes the land; he now must make the choice to give in to ruin, or find his purpose in the fight against the mysterious undead. Joined by the town lawman (a man with entirely different demons) the two men learn the extremes they’re willing to go to make it to the next day and the depths people will go to when they truly believe in something.
While the undead pose a serious threat in the film, we also experience the evils that the living are willing to commit against each other in order to survive and maintain order. The world is changing, and in the face of this, our heroes (and the rest of society) must decide how to meet that change. And like many characters of classic westerns before, not all will survive.
In reading up about this film, it seems that "Revelation Trail" is much bigger than just the film itself. Over at revelationtrail.com
it talks about how the site is: The collaborative effort of filmmakers, artists and web talent from around the country, each contributing their own experiences and strengths to tell the story of the undead rising in late 19th century America.
Also, over at the site, they will have supplementary webseries that will focus on the experiences of other characters not featured in the film, giving multiple perspectives on an apocalyptic scenario. Both aspects of the project are designed to stand alone, but serve to compliment each other with common themes of tested faith, survival in the face of a changing frontier, Old West justice and finding one’s purpose in a new (undead) world.
Here is what looks like to be one of the webseries.. a short titled: "Lillith's Story (Episode 1) The Gift.
There is death. There is blood. There is action. But most importantly, there is a glimpse at the human condition with each of our characters in Revelation Trail. Sometimes, it takes just the undead to remind us what it means to be alive.
The deadman will definately keep his eye on this... "VIVA LA INDIE!"
