zombeavers-2

Oddly placed at Time magazine are a few shots and behind-the-scenes videos from Zombeavers, which highlights an article on micro indie filmmaking.

“Zombeavers is an action-packed horror/comedy in which a group of college kids staying at a riverside cabin are menaced by a swarm of deadly zombie beavers. A weekend of sex and debauchery soon turns gruesome as the beavers close in on the kids. Riding the line between scary, sexy and funny, the kids are soon fighting for their lives in a desperate attempt to fend off the hoard of beavers that attack them in and around their cabin.

Directed by Jordan Rubin, and starring Bill Burr, Hutch Dano and Rex Linn, the above link can help some indie filmmakers learn how to get their films funded. In the end, Zombeavers landed veteran producers like Evan Astrowsky, who made the similarly-economical 2003 cult horror film Cabin Fever, as well as JC Spink and Chris Bender, the executive producers of horror movies like The Ring and comedies like The Hangover.
