From The Dark Sky Films Infection Press Release
Horror has a new homeland. Infection is the first zombie film made in Venezuela, and it sets the apocalyptic devastation against a backdrop of the very real sociopolitical turmoil ravaging the country. After an outbreak of a new strand of the rabies virus turns the population into crazed, bloodthirsty cannibals, a young doctor finds himself separated from his son, with the rapidly decaying city and sprawling countryside standing between them. Navigating his way through the plague-infested streets and marauder-filled backwoods roads, he must use every resource at his disposal to find his way back to his only child and hopefully unlock the secret to a cure for the deadly disease.
“The special effects impress” (Pip Ellwood – Hughes, Entertainment Focus) in the remarkable debut from writer-director Flavio Pedota. A collision of worlds between Mad Max and 28 Days Later, INFECTION is a breakneck thriller where the survival of an entire species may depend on the survival of one man.
Here’s a look at the official poster art!
Infection comes to DVD and Digital platforms on April 14, 2020. Watch for it!
Looks intense! It definitely has a 28 Days Later vibe. I dig it. You can never have too many zombie movies, in my opinion. This looks like a fine contribution to the genre! Looks like it’s already getting some great reviews. We’ll let you know what we think once we get our hands on it. Stay tuned!
