A new zombie flick is heading our way. It’s called STATE OF EMERGENCY and here’s what the press release tells us:
A bio-plant explosion will forever change the dynamic of a small country town. A man will be forced to kill those very people he once held dear. On April 16th, Image Entertainment challenges you to escape zombie-ridden Montgomery County with the release of State of Emergency. This harrowing tale of survival amongst the undead is directed by Turner Clay (Interception) and stars Jay Hayden (A Warrior’s Heart), Tori White (Silent Night) and Andy Stahl (The Blind Side). Also available via digital download, the DVD release will have an SRP of $27.97, and pre-book is March 19th.
After an explosion unleashes the contents of a military bio-weapons plant, the unsuspecting populace is transformed into a roaming army of flesh-eating zombies. Trapped in the quarantine zone, Jim finds himself cut off, confused and fighting for his own survival. Contacted by a small band of others unaffected by the toxins, Jim sets out to reach their besieged warehouse. Becoming the survival group’s de-facto leader, he struggles to keep order as they hunker down, fortify their stronghold and arm themselves against the attacking mutants. Fragmentary radio reports from outside hint at a last-ditch government rescue plan.
But can the survivors hold out until help arrives… or will they succumb to the living hell of an undead apocalypse? Will anybody survive?
Special features include two behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the movie and its visual effects, and deleted scenes.
