MTV UK DIGS UP MONSTER HIT

Some things have a tendency to take on a life of their own. P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!! is just such a project. The lively reality TV/horror spoof-which pits Officer Frank Hadely (Frank Rydberg) and his paranormal clean-up crew, the Post Mortem Animation Control (P.M.A.C.), against the shambling undead-has received rave reviews and gone straight for the brainpan of horror fans everywhere, through such varied venues as Showtime Next, IFILM.com and San Diego's infamous Comic Con International. Now this first chapter in Officer Hadely's exploits with the corporally-challenged has been picked up for broadcast by MTV UK, giving fans another chance to catch it as part of the cable station's Friday the 13th programming on June 13, 2003.

Running 25 minutes, this outrageous, award-winning independent short from special effects gurus Matt Rose and Chad Waters has taken the industry by storm. Frank Darabont, director of The Green Mile and Shawshank Redemption raves, 'WZA surpasses being skillful parody. It taps into the zombie zeitgeist of Romero and becomes legitimate horror in its own right. It's a surprising, inventive and muscular blend of genres that leaves the horror fan amused, appalled and wanting more.' Guillermo del Toro, director of Blade II, Cronos and Devil's Backbone enthuses, 'More than a skillful satire of the reality-TV format, this is bizarro world COPS. As if your cable service suddenly tapped into hell. P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!! is a true event! Two-fisted entertainment for gore-hounds with an evil sense of humor.'

Horror pundits agree that P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!! is must-see TV at its death-defying best. It's been cited for its 'great production values, plenty of cool zombies?' and for being 'absolutely hilarious' by Ryan Rotten at Creature-Corner.com. Anthony Timpone of Fangoria declares the production 'a really funny satire of zombie flicks and reality TV.' Nathan Tyler of Rue Morgue calls it 'one of the most original (and successful) parodies the genre has seen in quite some time.' Capone (Steve Prokopy) of Ain't It Cool News likens it to 'the bastard spawn of bad reality television and every kick-ass zombie film ever made. George Romero would be proud.' Mark Wheaton of Chud calls P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!! an 'all-around fun viewing experience, with great make-up, a great tongue-in-cheek wit and superb straight acting.'

P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!! won awards for Best Short Film and Best Make-up at the Los Angeles Horror/Thriller Film Festival (Shriekfest), in October of 2001. From there, it went on to appear on Showtime Next as part of a the multi-content series Piratenet and can also currently be viewed at IFILM.com and Hollywood.com. It will next be broadcast on MTV UK, Friday June 13th at 10 pm PST.
