Synapse Films is bringing the mockumentary Reel Zombies, from filmmakers Michael Masters and David J. Francis, to DVD on February 11, 2014.
Independent underground filmmakers Mike Masters and David J. Francis (playing themselves) are eager to complete the third film in their "Zombie Night" film trilogy, a series of rather unsuccessful low-budget, shot-on-video gorefests. The problem, however, is a recent zombie apocalypse has taken over the world since their series began. The dead are rising from their graves and eating the living… for real this time!
Masters and Francis embark on the production of their newest masterpiece anyway, only to discover shooting in a post-apocalyptic world offers many unforeseen challenges. Instead of giving up, they decide to capitalize on the cannibalistic catastrophe. No need for latex and fake blood when there’s an entire world of flesh eating undead to add realism to their film, and help save money on special effects costs.
The special features will include over 40 minutes of deleted scenes, a trailer and commentary.
