Co-writer/director Kevin Hamedani's thriller, "ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction" has been picked up by After Dark Films in a deal with Typecast Pictures. The company plans to feature the film in its next "After Dark Horrorfest: 8 Films to Die For." Dana Lambert, VP of Acquisitions at After Dark brokered the deal with Andrew Herwitz of Film Sales Co. who represented the filmmakers.
The film is set in ZMD, a conservative island community that's under attack. Port Gamble, Washington is being overrun with braineaters, and the people seem powerless to stave them off. A rag tag band of rebels led by Frida (Janette Armand), an Iranian college student suspected of being an Iraqi terrorist, and Tom (Doug Fahl), a gay business man who has returned to town with his partner to come out to his mother, tries to turn the tide and push the invading hoards of undead back.
"We are so pleased to offer up a gory, sharp film with such social relevance," commented After Dark Films executive Stephanie Caleb in a statement. "It brings a new level of variety to this year's fest and we're happy to have such a fun film to share with our fans."
