A military experiment gone horribly wrong...a zombie apocalypse...then ZOM-CALM! A revolutionary drug from the World Health Organization makes the undead docile enough to join the American workforce. Allen Christopher Edwards, our unlikely hero, gets taken advantage of by everyone from his boss and co-workers to his girlfriend Brenda...until one fateful afternoon. When Ace is bitten and subsequently captured by the Zombie Control Force he learns of a secret plot by the evil Keeper Ellis to rid the world of all zombies. The lives(?) of all American undead, and the fate of entire world, depends on one man: Ace The Zombie. Coming soon to a theater or drive-in near you! Written by
The Zombie Control Facility scenes were shot at Bill Ireland Youth Detention Center in Milledgeville, GA. After trying unsuccessfully for three months to secure the location, they had pretty much written it off. Meanwhile four other potential locations had fallen through. Three days before the scheduled shoot they received permission to film at the YDC. Shooting took place in shifts for 30 1/2 hours straight from Saturday at 5:00 pm until Sunday at 11:30 pm. Four members of the team stayed awake the entire time. The tunnel escape scene was saved for last as a reward. Ace is the first project to film at Bill Ireland Youth Detention Center. See more »
When the Zombie Control Force van arrives at Ace's house, as Stanley walks by the side of the van, the camera and cameraman are seen in the reflection. See more »
Oh sh*t is right, I'd sh*t too if I saw me walking up to me. Isn't that right sweetheart?

ACE had *just* the right combination of suspense and humor-- the funny parts really disarmed me, so when the scarier scene showed up, I was even MORE scared than usual! ACE will claim it's spot at the TOP of the Zom-Com heap. GREAT FILM! The acting is Top-Shelf. There are quite a few new faces and thoroughly enjoyed the nuanced tension between the characters. The sound track too is phenomenal. The premise of the "Undead" being integrated BACK into society is *Genius*. It seems to set up some really creative artistic opportunities that seem to have been taken full advantage of! Run Don't walk to see this film! (Unless, of course you can do that cool Zombie-drag-walk....then do that!)
