Web Series Dead Within Releases Movie Trailer
If you’re anything like me, you like a good web series because they’re short, sweet and to the point. Well, this title is anything but sweet, but from what I saw in the web series, this doesn’t look like your typical zombie flick. Which is definitely a good thing! Hailed as “a zombie tale with brains to spare” by Ain’t It Cool News, I’m actually excited to add this title to my Amazon Prime queue. The premiere was at the Film 4 Frightfest in London just this past summer and more and more positive reviews are coming in. Being someone that writes comics and movies myself, I’m excited about the marketing around this one as indie filmmaker Ben Wagner was a busy bee creating the comic, web series and then the movie all within the last year or so.
Here’s the synopsis for the movie which takes parts of the web series to make-up the feature:
Kim and Mike drive to their friend’s remote mountain cabin with their baby daughter and pet dog. The two couples have a night full of celebration unaware of the tragedy about to befall them…The cabin. Now boarded up. Claustrophobic. No power. No food. A box of the detritus of an electronics-dependent civilisation now gone forever. Kim and Mike have survived a mysterious pandemic through routine and isolation. Their world is this cabin. Mike ventures out to scavenge for supplies, but any time they open the door or make a noise they invite ravenous assailants. Kim remains in the cabin alone, armed only with kitchen knives and garden tools. She is tormented by images of the dead and her life that was and will never be. Soon her increasing paranoia will cause trust issues and her mind will no longer separate the real from the unreal.
