Horror film Day of the Dead: Bloodline is set in a post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled world where a former medical student named Zoe is tormented by a dark figure from her past. The gory twist? He’ s a half-human, half-undead ghoul hell-bent on destroying Zoe’s world. The film is based on George A. Romero’s classic 1985 zombie tale Dawn of the Dead, the concluding part of the late director’s original undead trilogy which began with 1968’s Night of the Living Dead.

Day of the Dead: Bloodline is directed by Hèctor Hernández Vicens and written by Mark Tonderai and Lars Jacobson. The film stars Sophie Skelton as Zoe and Johnathon Schaech from That Thing You Do! as the half-human, half zombie, as well as Marcus Vanco and Jeff Gum.

Day of the Dead: Bloodline is released by Saban Films in theaters, on VOD, and via digital HD on Jan. 5.
