Zombies, Comedy and Romance - Authority FX to Attend Toronto After Dark Film Festival Premiere of DeadHeads

Share Article

DeadHeads is an award winning zombie flick with a fresh take on an otherwise stale genre. Injecting comedy and romance into the undead, The Pierce Brothers have written and directed an innovative zombie film chock-full of greatness. Authority FX, who contributed visual effects work to the zombie film will be attending the Toronto After Dark Film Festival premiere. Authority FX is a boutique visual effects studio dedicated to creating high quality visual effects for both film and television productions.

Authority FX (AFX), having contributed the opening animation and select visual effects shots to the zombie/comedy DeadHeads, will be appearing at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. The award winning zombie film has been doing very well at festivals receiving praise from the likes of horror icon Bruce Campbell and documentary filmmaker Michael Moore.

With a fresh take on an otherwise stale genre, DeadHeads injects comedy and romance into undead zombie veins. While DeadHeads shows at 7pm on October 22nd at the Toronto Underground Cinema (186 Spadina Avenue), the 6th annual 2011 Toronto After Dark Film Festival runs from October 20th – 27th. Incidentally, the 9th annual Toronto Zombie Walk also happens on the 22nd, and has made the DeadHeads premiere the official after party of the Zombie Walk. Amazingly, close to 6000 rotten zombies walked the streets last year. Discount to the DeadHeads screening is being offered to all participants of this year’s deathly zombie stroll.

“We’re very excited to attend the Toront After Dark Film Festival Premiere of DeadHeads,” said Ryan P. Wilson, co-owner and visual effects supervisor of AFX. “It’s always a pleasure to meet with fans of the genre and mingle with cast and crew. In addition to the fun of it all, there’s always an opportunity to meet new filmmakers and discuss potential visual effects projects.”

AFX is a boutique digital visual effects studio in Waterloo, Ontario dedicated to creating high quality visual effects for both film and television productions. Digitally killing party-goers with saw blades and steel rods in 2009's The House That Jack Built, DeadHeads is the second horror film to which AFX has contributed visual effects.
