'ZOMBIE PATROL' BY GEOFF HOLDER WINS HORROR COMP & GOES INTO DEVELOPMENT
Geoff Holder's Oscar-bait screenplay ZOMBIE PATROL has won the International Horror Screenplay Competition run by Visceral Films. It's now in development for their 2016 production slate with a $2million budget.
A newly-created zombie wants to return to life so he can woo the girl he loves - but first he has to deal with the vicious biker gang who want to take over the horror theme park where he works as a pretend zombie.
Visceral Film's President Scott Wohlstein said: "Geoff Holder's story works in so many different ways - it's a character-driven horror rompfest complete with humor and a great story arc. It highlights the Land of Illusion theme park and the mission of the contest perfectly."
With a cast that includes Voodoo gods, chainsaw maniacs and mad scientists, the movie's principal location is the Land of Illusion Horror Theme Park in Ohio.
Geoff also has a first-look deal wih Visceral Films for future projects.
