I loves me some good, live-action zombie mayhem, but even I'd admit that maybe the genre is feeling rather swamped these days.
However, the latest outing from the ever-reliable team at Arrowstorm Entertainment (the indie masterminds behind Ozombie, the Mythica saga etc) offers something a bit different, both in format and concept.
Written and directed by Kurt Knight (no relation), We All Fall Down is a ten-episode serial set in the near-future when the Earth has been ravaged by a plague that turns adults over the age of 18 into flesh-eating zombies.
The series aims to present a world built by children with just a brief window to live a full life, a mixture of Peter Pan's Lost Boys, Lord Of The Flies and The Walking Dead.
Funded, as ever, through Kickstarter, Arrowstorm is looking to raise $25,000 by December 19, to cover post-production costs of We All Fall Down, as all the eight-to-ten-minute episodes have already been shot.
After a lifetime of wandering in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, Todd (an 18-year-old on the verge of transforming into a zombie) struggles to find a safe haven for his kid brother Benny; but when Todd becomes the chosen prey of a wicked young huntress (Matra), he must learn to trust and befriend other survivors before he succumbs to the zombie virus, to stop Mitra from adopting Benny into her clan of bloodthirsty savages.Arrowstorm has a flawless track record for delivering on their Kickstarters and you can check out the various investor incentives (which range from digital downloads, DVDs, and Blu-Rays right up to producer credits, and Skype chats with the production team.
