Something is rotten in the state of Denmark! There really is, and it’s
been underway for quite a while. Danish zombie flick “Escaping The
Dead”, is inspired by the face eating incident in Florida a few years
The official trailer is here and the film is headed out to festivals,
already having its first screenings in late August at Action on Film
International Film Festival in Las Vegas!
“Escaping The Dead” was written, produced and directed by Martin
Sonntag and Bastian Brinch Pedersen, while starring Bastian Brinch
Pedersen as David, Lloyd Kaufman, Lone Fleming (from the classic
Italian ‘Blind Dead’ films and many more), Kim Sønderholm (‘Vidar The
Vampire’, ‘Your Flesh Your Curse’, ‘Reyes’), Heine Sørensen, Sune
Rolf Jensen, Sead Sainoski, Dorte Rømer, over 150 zombie actors and
many, many more!
“Escaping The Dead” has been a 5 year long endavour, inspired by a
series of articles about the deathdrug “Krokodil” that was published
about the same period of time when Ronald Poppo had his face eaten by
a naked man hooked on bathsalt in Miami.
It is the perfect zombie plot: a deathdrug that turns people into
The film has its starting point in a typical day for the lead
character, David. David is the local marihuana pusher, but he is the
kind of dealer that smokes more than he sells.
The country has been hit by a new deathdrug and when David and his
partner in crime, Ahmir, is offered some exceptionally cheap cocaine
they see it as an opportunity to earn big money at a big techno
concert the following Friday. The cocaine turns out to have a terrible
side effect that creates a giant zombie outbreak that spreads across
the entire Copenhagen.
In the film we follow David and his bloody fight out of the city.
Check out the trailer and make sure to catch the film, either on one
of many coming festival screenings or whenever it hits home release!
