Described as Jurassic World meets “The Walking Dead“, The Rezort (read our review) is releasing on all major digital platforms in North America on January 17th 2017, courtesy of Content Media.
Starring Dougray Scott (Enigma, Hit Man), Jessica De Gouw (These Final Hours, Cut Snake), Martin McCann (Killing Bono, Clash of the Titans), Elen Rhys (Season of the Witch, World War Z) Claire Goose (Waking the Dead, Casualty) and Jassa Ahluwalia (Some Girls, The Bible), The Rezort is a horror film said to offer a fresh twist on the zombie genre.
The film is the third feature from director Steve Barker (Outpost, Outpost: Black Sun).
The Rezort sets its story in a world after an almost-apocalyptic zombie outbreak. Humans have won the war and are exploring how humanity can recover after such a huge percentage of the population has been wiped out.
Humankind finally has the upper hand, but Melanie, who lost her entire family, is still deeply traumatized. In a bid to overcome the demons of her past, she goes on a zombie safari retreat. It is the ultimate in therapeutic revenge.
The Rezort is actually a highly controlled and monitored environment, with a maze of concealed security cameras, restraints and barriers. The eyes and ears of trained security personnel are on the guests 24/7, ensuring a safe shooting distance between the living and the undead. That is until the resort’s security system is hacked and a computer virus crashes it, potentially unleashing thousands of bloodthirsty zombies back into the wild.
