“I’m extremely proud of the work our cast and crew has done,” says the film’s producer and director of photography, Brian Cunningham. “So many genre movies these days are about making a quick buck. But we were determined to take our time and make something unique but reminiscent of all the great horror and sci-fi movies we grew up loving.”

The movie features an ensemble cast, wall-to-wall creature and make-up effects, and over two-hundred computer generated effects shots.
“We didn’t have a huge budget, so we had to find creative ways to solve problems,” says Cunningham. “The result is a movie that focuses on comedy and character to tell an intimate story. Filled with zombie-aliens.”
