Filmmaker’s statement

“Originally this film was conceived and filmed for a zombie film festival at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver. We were excited to make a zombie film but wanted to pull it off while still staying true to the type of film that we love to make: films that have an emphasis on character on story instead of effects and visual spectacle.

We knew the festival would be overrun with gore and special effects, so we set out to make a zombie film with an almost complete absence of zombies and a story that was powerful and worth telling in its own right.

We wanted a story much like the newer zombie concepts that have begun to emerge, like The Walking Dead, and stories of the like that really strive to be dramatic and powerful stories on their own, and just simply use a zombie apocalypse as a catalyst for the story.”
