With filmmaker Wych Kaosayananda’s The Driver hitting the streets on November 26, and Kane Kosugi’s The Rider still inbound there’s fair reason to pay mind and stay tuned to Lionsgate’s upcoming follow-up release, Dead Earth.
You can take a gander at my early review here while indeed, and as Lionsgate elucidates in its announcement, Dead Earth “tells a parallel story” to the Mark Dacascos horror thriller. This one sees actresses Milena Gorum and Alice Tantayanon in a starring capacity for a quieter, slow, more atmospheric horror opus.
In this searing post-apocalyptic action thriller, two young women cling to life in an abandoned resort. They must survive in silence, in mortal fear of attracting the hordes of undead that roam the Earth. When their compound runs out of fuel, they are forced into the countryside to find gas, resulting in a nightmarish encounter with survivors. But that is nothing compared to the horrors that await them back at home, leading to a deadly confrontation with the evil that surrounds them.
Dead Earth is arriving on DVD, Digital, and On Demand beginning January 28. I’m in thorough disagreement with the choice of artwork but it does ultimately suits the agenda, and I’m quite certain that an acquaintant of mine, actor Lee Mason who was initially my door way to chatting with Kaosayananda years ago will get a kick out of seeing himself splashed front and center on the artwork. Cheers!
