First-time director Dominik Hauser promises “an epic zombie splatterfest” with his film Dead Squad, which is currently filming in the Balinese jungle.
The film stars Game of Thrones’ 7-foot man-mountain Conan Stevens and the world’s tallest model, Erika Ervin, aka Amazon Eve from American Horror Story: Freak Show. Their respective characters are known only as ‘Z13’ and ‘Zombie Queen’ and are “The King and Queen of a weird Dantean underworld,” according to Hauser, who also co-wrote the script and adds: “we’re doing things with them you haven’t seen before.”
Dead Squad is billed as “a campy, splatter-filled, horror adventure that harkens back to classic films of the early ‘80s. It concerns a group of young people who become lost in the jungle during a river rafting trip and stumble upon a long lost ruin that is home to a host of mysterious monsters.”
Check out these first promotional stills from the film, which give us glimpses of the huge sets constructed at Movie Studio Bali to bring the film’s dark underworld to life.
