A few weeks back, Image Entertainment released the zombie flick Dead Season on DVD everywhere and to support its home debut, Dread Central had the opportunity to chat with writer/producer/editor Loren Semmens about the project.
Dead Season follows a group of survivors a year after a zombie outbreak to a remote island where things aren't exactly as they seem and the undead running amok may not be the biggest threat to the residents living there. Directed by Adam Deyoe, the film stars Scott Peat, James C. Burns, Marissa Merrill and Corsica Wilson.
Check out our interview with Semmens below and look for Dead Season on DVD shelves now.
Dread Central: Can you start off by telling us how Dead Season came about?
Loren Semmens: Well, the director Adam and I had been friends for a while and we had always wanted to make a zombie film together. »
“Dead Season” writer/producer/editor Loren Semmens originally wasn’t going to a write a zombie film when he and “Dead Season” director Adam Deyoe were searching for a place to shoot a completely different film. But the two happened upon the right spot at the right time. “Adam and I traveled to Vieques [part of Puerto Rico], which is the island where we did principal photography. Our goal was to location scout for a different film we were in the process of writing, which was actually a buddy comedy. And when we got Vieques, we realized that these declassified military [sites and chemicals] were the perfect backdrop for something more horror related,” [ Read More ] »

Director: Adam Deyoe. Writers: Adam Deyoe, Joshua Klausner, and Loren Semmens. Cast: James C. Burns, Scott Peat, Marissa Merrill, Corsica Wilson, and Marc L. Fusco. With so many zombie genre films entering the market, this reviewer is wondering if filmmakers are simply trying to capitalize in on the undead craze. Films like The Terror Experiment are simply amateurish and this film added nothing to the genre. Now, Adam Deyoe of Yeti: A Love Story and Psycho Sleepover takes a mediocre stab at this genre from the director's chair. His film, Dead Season, starts from a weak place, a poor script. From here on out, the film feels like amateur hour spent in a tropical paradise. The film begins with the protagonist, Elvis (Scott Peat). He is a lone survivor of a zombie apocalypse. He has a friend who he can talk to on the radio. She is a mysterious figure. »

When you claim that your upcoming horror flick puts a “riveting new spin on the zombie genre”, you’d better bring your A-game. Because at this point, I think we’ve seen just about everything under the sun. Unless your zombie flick chronicles the adventures of a group of zombie bowlers who wander from city to city, looking for places to play and people to challenge, then you’d better be ready to impress us. The trailer for director Adam Deyoe’s “Dead Season” certainly suggests that he’s headed in the right direction, though looks can be deceiving. Case in point: “Automaton Transfusion”. Don’t even get me started. Have a look at the official synopsis, complete with ballsy proclamation: When a worldwide viral outbreak leads to a plague of zombies scouring the earth for the living, two survivors flee the chaos of America to a remote island, hoping »
