The Rezort (formerly Generation Z) is screening at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on the 15th, 17th, 18th and 24th of June 2016.
“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 traumatised. 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.”
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 offering a fresh twist on the zombie genre.
Steve Barker, the British filmmaker behind Nazi zombie feature Outpost and Outpost II, directs from a script by Paul Gerstenberger.
The film, produced by Matador Pictures, The Captain Starlight Company and UMedia, was shot on location in Wales and on Mallorca, Spain.
