The locally produced horror-comedy Zombey, which was supported by the Guernsey Arts Commission via the Film, Poetry and Prose Sub-Committee, will be getting it’s premiere at the Princess Royal Centre for the Performing Arts on Wednesday 21st December 2012 as part of an evening of horror cinema called Silent Night – Zombey Night, organised by Sarnia Shorts Film Festival.
The film was written and directed by Jack De La Mare in the summer of 2011 and was shot at the Guernsey Grammar School. It tells the story of a group of zombie apocalypse survivors who seek shelter in a school, only to find it overrun with the undead.
Zombey will be screened at the event alongside George A. Romero’s 1968 genre classic Night of the Living Dead which kick started a revolution in horror cinema the effects of which are still being felt today.
Wynter Tyson, Sarnia Shorts Co-Organiser, said: “Silent Night Zombey Night is an exciting opportunity to watch a true cinematic landmark and an exciting new movie from a local student filmmaker on Guernsey’s biggest screen. We are looking forward to a fun evening and are proud to be promoting the work of some very talented local youngsters.”
The screening takes place at the Princess Royal Centre for the Performing Arts on Wednesday 21st December from 7.30. It is open to anyone over the age of 15 and tickets, costing £8, are available via guernseytickets.gg or by calling 749999.
