We just completed principal photography on a fun zombie football project called “Play Dead”, directed by Doug Sakmann and based on a novel by Ryan Brown. You can stay tuned to the OFFICIAL WEBSITE here for pictures, video, up-to-date details and more!

About ‘Play Dead’:

A horror/thriller/comedy in the spirit of ‘Friday Night Lights’ and ‘Shawn of the Dead’. The story centers on zombies bent on revenge in a football-obsessed town. When a high school football team is murdered by a rival team, a local witch brings the dead players back to life as zombies so they can trounce their rivals in one last game and save their own souls….
