Look out zombie-lovers! A unique zombie short entitled "Thaw of the Dead" is slated to film in Michigan this March starring none other than Benjamin Busch (from The Wire, Generation Kill, etc.)
Thaw of the Dead is a short film project inspired by an earlier collaboration between The Treefort Collective and the non-profit Traverse City 5K Zombie Run.
The Treefort Collective is trying to raise their last bit of funding through an Indiegogo campaign here . Perks for helping make this movie inclue artwork from the movie, bumper stickers, zombie hunting passes and even a staged zombie attack on your house!
Thaw of the Dead is a story of survival that questions the price of a group's humanity, where the hauntingly beautiful landscape is as dangerous as the roaming corpses. Within this apocalyptic world, a waning group of survivors have found refuge in an abandoned dam. Desperate times called for desperate measures, and the only way to survive the harsh winter was to make painful choices and live by the skin of their teeth. Now, starved and torn, the group looks to the coming spring with added opportunity to search nearby towns for supplies ... but at the same time, the resurgence of the living dead, released from winter's icy grip.
Into this nightmare, one man sets out on the bitter river, past lurking shadows, through wasted towns, to a small coastal community - their last, best hope. The life of a friend and the group’s humanity hang in the balance as he races across an apocalyptic landscape, past gnashing teeth in a desperate attempt to survive the...THAW OF THE DEAD.
With 26 days left to go on the Indigegogo campaign , the film production company is looking for support from their zombie-loving fans to bring them across the finish line so that this film can be made. Check it out and be a part of the adventure !
