Copenhagen is perhaps my favorite city in the world (even though I’ve only been there once), but I’m betting that’s not the version of the town you’ll see in Escaping The Dead. Directors Martin Sonntag and Bastian Brinch Pedersen have turned the place into a fleshy nightmare.
The film, which is still shooting, stars Pedersen, along with Rama Øzel, Daniel Hutera, Ali Öezkan, Iben Ma Bønnelycke, Nicolai Huan Nguyen, Camilla Ludvigsen and Kim Sønderholm.
Director Martin Sonntag comments, “The film is inspired by a series of articles about the deathdrug “Krokodil” that was published about the same period of time when Ronald Poppo had his face eaten by a naked man hooked on bathsalt in Miami. We saw it as the perfect zombie plot: a deathdrug that turns people into zombies.The film has its starting point in a typical day for the lead character, David. David is the local marihuana pusher, but he is the kind of dealer that smokes more than he sells. In the meantime the country has been hit by a new deathdrug and when David and his partner in crime Ahmir is offered some exceptionally cheap cocaine they see it as an opportunity to earn big money at the big techno concert the following Friday, but the cocaine turns out to have a terrible side effect that creates a giant zombie outbreak that spreads across the entire Copenhagen. In the film we follow David and his bloody fight out of the city.”
