In ZMD, a conservative island community is under attack! Port Gamble, Washington is being overrun with braineaters, and the people seem powerless to stave them off. A rag tag band of rebels led by Frida (Janette Armand), an Iranian college student suspected of being an Iraqi terrorist, and Tom (Doug Fahl), a gay business man who has returned to town with his partner to come out to his mother, tries to turn the tide and push the invading hoards of undead back.

“We are so pleased to offer up a gory, sharp film with such social relevance,” said After Dark Films Executive Stephanie Caleb. “It brings a new level of variety to this year’s fest and we’re happy to have such a fun film to share with our fans.”

“We’re all delighted that ZMD found a good home with After Dark Films. Their concept of a festival theatrical release is perfect for our times and for bringing ZMD to the attention of appreciative fans all across the country. I wish them all the best with Horrorfest 4.” – John Sinno, Typecast Films

Andrew Herwitz added, “Many companies pursued this film. We chose After Dark Films because we really believe that their unique marketing concept will guarantee that zombie hungry audiences across the country will be able to see this very unique film.” ZMD joins previously announced titles, The Graves, DREAD, Lake Mungo, and Hidden.
