Revelation Trail – Trailer

16 Jun

Revelation Trail is the story of an undead rising in the 19th century (wiki-wiki-wild) Wild West (bang bang, getting jiggy wit’ it).

A frontier preacher’s life is destroyed when a gruesome power consumes the land; he now must make the choice to give in to ruin, or find his purpose in the fight against the mysterious undead. Joined by the town lawman, a man with entirely different demons, the two men learn the extremes they’re willing to go to make it to the next day and the depths people will go to when they truly believe in something.

The film is due for release in October, but if cowboys and zombies are your thing, there is also a supplementary web series which focuses on characters not in the film. You can can get the latest episodes on Youtube.

You can find out more on the official site or on Facebook.

This year geek theatre is making its return to the Edinburgh Fringe after a total sell out of 2009, subsequent sell outs of Leicester Comedy Festival & Brighton Fringe and 13 rather excellent reviews from the likes of SFX, Fortean Times, The Argus and Threeweeks (including 4 stars from Broadwaybaby, Zombie Command [ZC – that’s us!], Venue magazine, Liverpool Echo & The British Theatre Guide) and this year they’re not just teaching you how to survive…… they’re seeing if you can.

As well as going for gold a second time with this sequel to last years cult hit, after their Fringe debut last year, the show has also spawned a tie-in book that is being launched nationally by Allison & Busby on 1st August

Stag Night Of The Dead – Trailer

16 Jun

Set in the grip of a global pandemic and on the eve of Dean’s wedding, a group of old school friends head off to a run down military base with a PVC clad stripper for the ultimate stag party experience.

Forget paintball, at Zomball you get to shoot zombies with a dirty great stun gun. It’s a game that is literally more than life or death.

SNOTD will be available to download to buy or rent August 31st with the DVD coming out on Halloween, October 31st. Check out our Stag Night of the Dead review (although there’s apparently more boobs now!).

The DVD will include the usual directors commentaries, behind the scenes featurette as well as deleted scenes, bloopers, a short video about how to do zombie makeup and other extras, including stuff from the video blog from Cannes a few years back that never made it online, a how not to make a low budget indie film with all the trials and tribulations and loads of other extras to make it a worthy addition to anyones DVD collection.

You can keep up to date with when and where you can see it by visiting the official site or joining them on Facebook.
