Horror icons Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder and Michael Berryman star in the riotous new zombie comedy, Shed of the Dead, which will be having its World Premiere at this year's Sci-Fi-London Film Festival on May 18th at Stratford Picturehouse, followed by a Digital release on May 20th.
In the film, "An 'urban fear' grips the tenants of an inner city allotment when the long-predicted apocalypse finally arrives. Gardeners, of all levels of green-fingered ability and produce-preference, are afraid to venture onto their plots, especially late at night. And even then, when they can summon enough courage to so do, there is no safety in numbers. For the dead have risen from the depths beneath the cabbage patch, and the rows of sweet pea, hell-bent on mischief, mayhem, and consumption of the living."
"Only the nimble-fingered "figurine war-gamer" Trevor, aka 'Casimir the Destroyer', and his best friend Graham, the knightly "Sir Brandt", stand between the devilish hordes of undead and the salvation of mankind - well at least in their alter-ego fantasies they do. Until, of course, one dark night as they look beyond the confines of Trevor's little wooden shed, they discover that the world has truly fallen into the hands of the undead -- particularly Trevor's allotment tenant neighbours. Now Trevor must venture into the unknown to save his wife, Bobbi, and her 'capricious' friend Harriet, from a world gone to chaos. And in so doing, become the hero he has always fantasized he was."
The film also features a host of British talent including Spencer Brown, Lauren Socha (Misfits), Emily Booth (Doghouse), and Ewen MacIntosh ("The Office"). In addition, British actor Brian Blessed will be lending his unmistakable booming vocals as the film's narrator.
Shed of the Dead producer, Nicholas David Lean, has said, "We're all delighted to finally be able to showcase Shed of the Dead at SFL to fans of independent British comedy horror. We hope you all have as much fun watching it as we did making it!"
Special guests from the cast, Spencer Brown, Emily Booth, Lauren Socha, and Ewen MacIntosh will be attending the Q&A at Sci-Fi-London Film Festival. Tickets will be available through sci-fi-london.com.
