Dead Genesis - Opening Scene


Yesterday I posted news (here) on an upcoming indie zombie film - Dead Genesis.  If you read the article, you know that with Dead Genesis, they want to "resurrect Romero's vision."

Below is the opening 5 mins of the film, and after watching it, I have to admit, I havent got that emotionally pulled into a movie so quickly, in a long time.  They have me hooked, but will they be able to keep me?  Take a look and let me know what you think. 

Synopsis: Seven months have passed since the dead took over. Many cities and states have been abandoned and left to die. Society is trying to create a new order from the chaos. The military has been officially assigned the task of fighting the undead hordes. However several self sufficient hunting groups made up of everyday citizens have been established to take on the threat in a war aptly referred to as the 'War on Dead'.

In the midst of this global tragedy, media has redefined itself to try and capitalize on the new world order. Jillian Hurst, a former news writer and amateur documentarian, has set out to make a pro-war propaganda film to support the W.O.D. She joins up with a pack of renegade hunters known infamously to North America as 'the DeadHeads'. The moral dynamics and hardships of fighting in a war against the undead are told from several different perspectives.

Made up of Christians, atheists and men and women of varying ages, the disparate band of anti-heroes seeks to cleanse the landscape of the undead with each DeadHead motivated by their own personal agendas. Everyday brings the possibility of death and horror, but also offers new bonds that redefine family and friendship.

Dead Genesis is currently doing the indie film festivals in Canada... if you want to know more about this film, be sure to check out their official site.
