Britain has another stem to it's ever growing zombie collection. 'Zombies of the Night' is a new production from the team behind the supernatural thriller 'The Lost'.

Fango reports that it was shot in a mere six days on hi-definition in North Devon. 'Zombies of the Night' was directed and produced by Stuart Brennan, with Yuen-Wai Liu as associate producer on the project. Liusays, “Stuart had been asking me to find him something interesting to direct, and with his hectic producing and acting schedules, we only had a short time for the actual shoot. So I managed to work with Leo McKellan, scriptwriter of the forthcoming boxing pic RISEN, to write something based around Stuart’s hometown, that we could shoot quickly and easily, within a genre that had proven appeal.”

The story is a of a young man (played by actor Joe Bone) who is already suffering from the failure of his on-line business, and wakes up one morning to find that his parents have succumbed to an undead plague that is sweeping the area. He’s soon fighting for his life as he attempts to escape the zombie hordes, shedding plenty of blood along the way. “We advertised for local actors,” Liu says, “but the response was overwhelming; we had actors as far abroad as Canada offering to come and work on the film! In the end, the majority of the key cast came from London, but others were from Coventry and one of our makeup girls even came from Yorkshire.” About 30 students from North Devon College also took part, both in speaking roles and as ghoulish extras.

“The one thing that strikes me about horror films,” Brennan says, “is that they are fun to make, there are always people having a good time on set and they’re very passionate about making the film look as realistic as possible. So although horror isn’t what I veer toward as an audience member, as a filmmaker it’s something that inspires me. In the last few years there have been some excellent zombie films, and I always like the idea of an undead apocalypse, but you always see it in built-up areas and you always get a scope of the bigger picture. I’ve always felt that that’s not what you’d feel, that’s not what you’d see; you’d just be incredibly scared and freaked out that there were zombies everywhere, and you’d try and escape it. So this film is more of a character piece, with an incredible central performance by Joe, where we follow one man caught up in a nightmare of a world.”
