After a successful premiere on Space, Video Services Corp., (VSC) is bringing cult studio The Asylum’s latest undead fest, Zombie Night to DVD, Blu-ray and VOD in Canada on January 7, 2014.
With this latest gore-fest Zombie Night, creature feature specialist John Gulager (Feast, Piranha 3DD) is back doing what he likes best – killing monsters and re-animating careers.
“How often do you get to turn Shirley Partridge into a zombie?” says Gulager, who previously centred the action in Piranha 3DD around David Hasselhoff.
In Zombie Night, the Partridge Family’s Shirley Jones, as a hysterical grandma, is just one of the pop culture figures who get to chew up the scenery before it chews them. Also doing battle with the living dead are Daryl Hannah, The Breakfast Club’s Anthony Michael Hall, and Alan Ruck (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off).
But even more important than that cool twinge of retro-recognition is the licence to literally cut loose. Zombie Night, produced for the U.S. Syfy channel, is a non-stop bloodbath in which a handful of humans try to cut through a sea of decaying flesh and survive until dawn (when the dead return to the ground).
“I love playing with that whole scenario of being overwhelmed, of dealing with a situation that is way out of control,” says Gulager, who was discovered on season three of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s Project Greenlight TV series. “These zombies are already dead, so there’s no guilt in dismembering them,” says Gulager, who employed actual amputee actors. “People love to see the makeup effects of arms and fingers falling away.”
