The Zombie Truck is unlike anything I have ever seen before, I almost didn’t believe that someone had built this thing.
Guelph, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
The Zombie Truck has been patrolling the streets of Ontario, Canada since May 2012 but it’s only recently that a small film production company took notice. Bleeding Apple and Possibility Films teamed up with the Zombie Disposal Unit (fictional) to produce a 3 minute film documenting the unique features of the Zombie Truck, a vehicle built for zombie hunting and disposal.
“The Zombie Truck is unlike anything I have ever seen before, I almost didn’t believe that someone had built this thing.” said Reese Eveneshen, the director behind the short film. Eveneshen got word of the truck after it was spotted patrolling the streets of Guelph, Ontario by David McLeod, one of the founding partners of Bleeding Apple. Bleeding Apple is a film collective based in Ontario, Canada and is responsible for many short films in the horror and suspense genre. Reese Eveneshen is best known for his role as director of “Dead Genesis” a 2010 film that takes place in a post zombie apocalypse world.
“Zombies aren’t new to me”, says Eveneshen. “From the beginning of my career as a film maker my main focus has always been horror and zombie movies, so when I heard about the Zombie Truck, my brain started working overtime on how I could integrate it into a short film. I finally decided that creating a car commercial focusing on the trucks features was probably the best angle.” The trucks creator and owner, Shawn Gusz loved the idea. “I am obviously a huge fan of the genre, so when Dave and Reese contacted me about doing something with the truck I was ecstatic.”
The vehicle was built from the ground up as a fictional zombie hunting, collection and disposal unit. It has been accessorized with a series of high quality props for hunting zombies including a six foot tall metal zombie containment cage. The Zombie Truck also features emergency lighting, zombie decapitating front bumper, a slew of anti-zombie weaponry and replica WW2 style Gatling gun. The most notable feature of the truck is the three full sized Zombies created by the folks over at HauntedHouseCreations.com, a prop fabricator in Toronto, Ontario.
“I am honestly blown away with how the film turned out, especially the effects and post-production work that made everything that much more realistic.” says Gusz. “I really believe that this video has the possibility of going viral, simply because of the quality of the film and the popularity of the zombie genre.”
