The Rizen, 2017.
Directed by Matt Mitchell.
In the 1950s, a woman awakens in an underground tunnel with no memory of how she got there. She discovers that the military has been conducting occult experiments in an effort to gain an early upper hand in the Arms Race, an effort that has gone horribly awry, and must fend of bandaged, zombie-like monsters while helping others get to safety.
The Rizen, the new sci-fi/horror hybrid from writer-director Matt Mitchell (Gangsters, Guns & Zombies) plays out like a strange mash-up of Resident Evil, The Wizard of Oz, Event Horizon, and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. It inherits its amnesiac heroine rampaging through an underground laboratory from Evil, its merry band of evil fighting adventurers from Wizard, its portal-to-hell plot from Horizon, »
