Alternate Versions

A new cut of the film is being completed in 2011 for international distribution and domestic release in September or November of 2011. Several scenes were consolidated and additional scenes and footage was added or restored. Also music was added and changed in the new cut. The old, (2009) cut is now considered the "Festival Version," and should properly be considered the "alternate" version, the "Official version" will be released theatrically in 2011. See more »

This is a film that deserves more credit than it gets
28 December 2012 | by paulholbornSee all my reviews

My son found this film & recommended that I watch, having been a fan of David Anders from Heros as Adam Monroe & being a fan of the Zombie genre I had high hopes.

I wasn't let down, this film was brilliantly entertaining & the ending totally unexpected! Anders & Wylde work brilliantly together & D. Kerry Prior's script is a great new take on the zombie genre which other film makers should take note of. This film is up there with Shaun Of The Dead, The Vagrant & a host of other films, most of which never get the credit they deserve.

A true future classic
