‘A portrait of a society at vicious odds with itself… primed to explode, as though the old west, with its territorial disputes and shootouts, had never ended. Yet in its central couple it offers an alternative model, and the possibility of healing, both personal and national’
‘Proffers commentary on recent and current social issues including pandemic-related and political ones while delivering relationship drama and zombie suspense…. impressive… terrific performances’
‘A zombie movie in essence, but it’s the other concerns that make this far more interesting than the usual horde of cannibalistic apocalypse movies… With a doomy musical score and naturalistic cast, this emotional character piece that examines the political fragility of rural America during an extreme situation proves to be a real palate cleanser’

Have you Herd…? There’s a brand-new action-packed zombie thriller from Steven Pierce coming to our screens, starring The Sinner’s Ellen Adair (Homeland, The Sinner) as a woman trying to outrun her past, but who accidentally runs headlong into a rampant zombie outbreak and a raging war between militia groups…
Following its successful World Premiere at FrightFest 2023 this August, you can join the Herd on Digital and DVD on 23rd October 2023.
With her marriage on the rocks, Jamie (Adair) convinces her wife, Alex (Mitzi Akaha – Archive 81), to join her on a make-or-break canoe trip to her remote hometown in rural Missouri, where her father (Corbin Bernsen – Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Major League) still lives. But when an accident leaves Alex with a broken leg, things quickly go from bad to worse to unimaginable…
When they finally reach the town, they discover it’s been overrun by Heps – virus-infected humans turned bloody-thirsty zombies that are multiplying by the minute.
Even worse…. Alex has been scratched by one of the infected. As panic spreads, violence erupts, and hope turns to horror as the couple find themselves caught between two warring militia groups and the ravenous zombies and must do anything and everything they can to survive.
It’s fight for survival or fight for control as zombies face off with militia in a battle between the unstoppable undead and the cold-blooded commandos… and two women who’ll fight to the very last to make it out alive in this bloody-brilliant zombie fest.
Herd arrives on Digital and DVD on 23rd October 2023 from High Fliers Films
