From Los Angeles to Toronto and around the globe, they stagger through the streets… gory, rotting spectacles on an endless search to assuage their insatiable hunger for human brains.
The film follows the international phenomenon known as the ‘zombie walk’, and uncovers its origins, from the first ‘official’ zombie walk (with a mere six participants) to walks attracting more than 15,000 undead zealots.
Pineda’s on-the-street interviews offer insight into why people are attracted to these congregations.
Highlighted with actors Norman Reedus (THE WALKING DEAD) and Eugene Clark (LAND OF THE DEAD), as well as makeup artist and director Tom Savini (GRINDHOUSE, DJANGO) and screenwriter John A. Russo (HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN), who worked with George A. Romero on the iconic movies NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and THE DAWN OF THE DEAD.
Ultimately, DEAD MEAT WALKING is a fun and riveting documentary that offers a unique focus on the extraordinary and ghoulish pastime that has devoured the imaginations of zombie fans of all ages.
Not to be missed.
