'Freakin' disgusting!': Creating zombies for horror film 'The Battery'

Posted on

Creating movie zombies is dirty, and possibly vomit-inducing, work. That’s the main takeaway from the exclusive slightly NSFW clip you can see below, which details how the folks responsible for the terrific microbudget horror film, The Battery, made their undead.

Written and directed by first-time filmmaker Jeremy Gardner, The Battery stars Gardner and Adam Cronheim as a pair of bickering baseball players attempting to survive a zombie apocalypse in a leafy but inevitably blood-drenched New England. Scream Factory is releasing the movie on Blu-ray and DVD Sept. 16 with a commentary, outtakes, a film about the movie’s fabulous soundtrack, and a 90-minute documentary. The Battery also comes with a seal of approval from actor A.J. Bowen who, as one of the stars of You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, and Ti West’s recent The Sacrament, knows a thing or three about genre filmmaking.
