DEAD END DAYS: The Complete Series Now available on DVDMeh
Our favorite indie film makers in Toronto have released Dead End Days onto DVD. I have a great story to about them. We went to a bar to talk to them about their film over a year ago and caused a "disturbance". What kinda disturbance? We are such shitty tippers that the manager came over to ask us if there was something wrong. Yes thats right we didnt tip enough and the manager came over, and pretty much made us all look like a bunch of douche bags. So yes they are great filmmakers but shitty tippers. Then again I was also at the table so I guess I am a shitty tipper to. Funny story though isnt it? I only share this with you all since I recall promising not to repeat what happened. HAHAHHAA. AnyrateRocket Ace Moving Pictures is very pleased to announce the release of its groundbreaking Internet serial "Dead End Days" in one complete four-disc DVD set.
The episodic zombie comedy "Dead End Days" chronicled a year in the life of a post-war society trying to peaceably integrate a zombie population. When a grasping-at-straws cola ad campaign turned into an overnight success, zombies become the new "it" demographic and the lynchpin to economic recovery. The 48-episode serial chronicled the adventures of a slew of colourful characters including an apathetic video store clerk trafficking in classic horror movies, his frustrated life-insurance
agent girlfriend, and two eager freelance zombie hunters all trying to find a place in this strange new world.
Broadcast exclusively over the Internet via deadenddays.com between October 2003 and November 2004 this is the first time that the cult series has been made available on video. The mammoth box set includes all 48 episodes, and four "Special edition" episodes totaling over four and half hours. As well the series creators have included over four hours of "behind the scenes" commentary, three blooper and outtake reels, a featurette on the art design of the series, and other exclusive never-before seen content. The DVD's also allow back to back viewing without interruption, or viewing of single episodes with their original opening and closing credits, making "Dead End Days: The Complete Series" the definitive edition that fans of the groundbreaking
series have been requesting.
The DVD release comes on the very warm reception received by "Dead End Days: The Complete Scripts" a 350-page scriptbook containing the original script to each episode, as well as a wealth of development material, production photos, and scriptwriting theory by “Dead End Days” scribe, and award winning playwright Jason Patrick Rothery. Both the DVD and Scriptbook are available directly from Rocket Ace
