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
In 1992 Robert Rodriguez made el Mariachi, his first film, for the unheard of low budget of only $7,000.00. In 2010, 18 years later, Ace the Zombie, producer/ director Giles Shepherd's first film, was made for the princely sum of only $6,000. Rodriguez shot on 16mm so most of his budget went to film and processing. Ace was shot on HD so most of the budget appears on screen in the form of costumes, props, makeup and one location, Bill Ireland Youth Detention Center, which cost $650.00 to use for one 3 day weekend.

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!)
