New York, NY – A bio-engineering company, a desperate political activist and two all-too-human cleaners set the scene for this spooky, smart and suspenseful film about a deadly virus with the potential to end humankind…by bringing them back from the dead.
Eschewing the ‘hordes of the living dead vs. a handful of survivors’ approach to the zombie genre, GROUND ZERO builds tension to alarming effect by pitting its relatable characters and unusual but believable challenges in the here and now.
Two professional ‘cleaners’ are hired to collect a frozen corpse located high in the mountains and dispose of it in an old warehouse, unaware the body belongs to political activist Darius, brutally assassinated by Nat-Tech Corp. after injecting himself with a deadly virus.
A swiftly-defrosting infected corpse in tow, they arrive at the warehouse to discover a group of amateur cleaners, a rising body count…and a rising corpse. Can our cleaners avert a global biological meltdown, or will Darius’ grave become Ground Zero?
Directed by Channing Lowe, Ground Zero is a visceral new take on the zombie origin genre that will have you on the edge of your seat!
