THE BATTERY is a suspenseful and incredibly inventive drama-horror film about two men who must not only survive a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by zombies, but who must survive each other. Winning rave reviews on the Festival circuit, Front Row Centre along with Raven Banner are proud to present this striking film as the next feature in the popular Sinister Cinema series.
Two former baseball players, Ben and Mickey, make a trek across a desolate New England with the omnipresent threat of zombies. They stray away from the cities and towns now teeming with lumbering corpses, and stick to the surrounding empty back roads and forests.
As the two men are alone together, they must learn to overcome the striking differences in each other’s personalities. Ben embraces an increasingly feral, ungoverned, nomadic lifestyle of living alone, while Mickey is unable to accept the harsh realities of the new world. In a land void of civilisation, one could really use a friend.
Sinister Cinema brings a series of independent horror films to 28 Cineplex theatres across Canada. The films will include unique content, and in some cases, special appearances, including live question and answer sessions with directors, pre-recorded interviews and more.
