After an incredibly successful International Premiere at Hot Docs, and further spreading of the zombie epidemic at international festival circuits, Doc of the Dead is back in Toronto for a theatrical run at Cineplex Yonge-Dundas, starting Friday July 11, 2014.
You heard it here first – the definitive documentary on zombie culture. Doc of the Dead hosts a rich pop culture dialogue with zombie experts and celebrities, and offers up participation from YouTubers and indie filmmakers, where it investigates the possibility and ramifications of an actual zombie outbreak.
An in-depth exploration into the origin of the zombie as we know it, Doc of the Dead also features interviews with historians, authors, make-up effects artists, and some of Cinema’s biggest horror icons, including legendary director George Romero, Simon Pegg, Bruce Campbell, Max Brooks and many others.
Born and raised in Geneva, Switzerland, director Alexandre O. Philippe is best known for his documentaries The People vs. George Lucas, and The Life and Times of Paul the Psychic Octopus. Philippe is also known for his multi-award-winning narrative and documentary shorts, including Left, The Spot, and Inside.
