FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 – MIDNIGHT
DIRECTOR IN ATTENDANCE!
Dir. Scooter McCrae, 1994
USA, 84 minutes.
The Zombie sub-genre has been been tired for decades. Back in 1994 a young filmmaker named Scooter McCrae brazenly assaulted that tired template when he combined his obsession with the sublime, obscure euro-sleaze of filmmakers like Jess Franco, the cold art-house visions of Andrei Tarkovsky, and his own disenchantment with humanity in general, to create one of the ’90s most transgressive works, SHATTER DEAD. From scene one, wherein The Angel Of Death impregnates a human woman, causing planet Earth’s dead to rise, it’s clear Shatter Dead is a non-stop kaleidoscope of fresh, uncompromising imagery. A no-budget, shot on video, apocalyptic nightmare-world where trust and humanity’s desire to understand the meaning of its existence is constantly subverted, SHATTER DEAD is a milestone in both the the Zombie genre and the world of SOV.
