Clever and creepy. I died laughing.
Jasper, IN (PRWEB) December 3, 2009
Underneath the Christmas tree this holiday season… that's where you'll find Zombie Dearest, the perfect stocking stuffer for indie film lovers. Scream Clock Productions unearths what promises to be this year's zombie comedy sensation just in time for Christmas.
"Frightening and Hilarious" says Dan Goldberg, producer of last summer's runaway hit, The Hangover. "Clever and creepy. I died laughing." says undead queen, Thea Munster, originator of the Zombie Walk phenomenon.
Zombie Dearest is about an unemployed comedy writer Gus Lawton (David Kemker) who pushes his wife Deborah (Shauna Black) too far and finds himself chasing her across the country to the run-down house of her childhood. Faced with the choice of losing her or living by her plan, he gets busy fixing up the old place… starting with the septic tank. Just when he reaches his limit, Gus digs up the very thing he needs, a zombie (David Sparrow) who will do anything he says… for now anyway.
Zombie Dearest combines romantic black comedy with a terrifying twist, drawing comparisons to other zombie cult classics such as Shaun of the Dead and Fido. Horror film aficionado and movie critic William Colby lists the film among his top 13 picks for the year, adding that Zombie Dearest is "never dull or clichéd, it manages to tread new ground… clever, well-written… it never fails to be entertaining."
"It's a movie where I feel like I get my money's worth," adds Director David Kemker. "Not a goofy slasher flick chock-full of gore and punch lines, but real terror and real comedy, side-by-side."
A low-budget genre-bender that strikes a nerve in a broad swath of movie lovers, Zombie Dearest is a wild ride that's both smartly comic and deeply quirky. And it's available now through Netflix and online from Anthem Pictures.
