This is not another shootout zombie flick. [spoiler alert!] It’s about the inner journey of a person on the run from his demons, real or not, from an unknown enemy, who may attack anywhere, anytime. Perhaps it’s the story of a victim, a brainwashed pawn, a scapegoat in a devious system, or perhaps it’s just the story of an executioner. As fear confuses and deforms reality, Jay meets surreal characters and learns bits of truth on his way to salvation, or perhaps to damnation.
The movie touches contemporary issues, like mysterious epidemics, terrorism paranoia, vets PTSD, mass shootings, big brother conspiracy and more. It’s a contemporary tale of realistic madness. Yet, it never loses its focus on entertaining, which is why we watch movies, after all.
Stylistically inspired by masters like Sergio Leone, John Carpenter, Sam Raimi, Stanley Kubrick, Scorsese, Tarantino, the film is shot in interior and exterior locations in Los Angeles and surrounding desert. To give a quick idea, Evil Dead meets Jacob’s Ladder.
