Here's a press release I received recently for the Danish film Escaping The Dead. I'll add in the trailer at the end of the release.

"Escaping the Dead" is inspired by a series of articles about the deathdrug "Krokodil" that was published about the same period of time when Ronald Poppo had his face eaten by a naked man hooked on bathsalt in Miami. It is the perfect zombie plot: a deathdrug that turns people into zombies.
The film has its starting point in a typical day for the lead character, David. David is the local marihuana pusher, but he is the kind of dealer that smokes more than he sells. In the meantime the country has been hit by a new deathdrug and when David and his partner in crime Ahmir is offered some exceptionally cheap cocaine they see it as an opportunity to earn big money at the big techno concert the following Friday, but the cocaine turns out to have a terrible side effect that creates a giant zombie outbreak that spreads across the entire Copenhagen. In the film we follow David and his bloody fight out of the city.

Directed by Martin Sonntag and Bastian Brinch Pedersen, the film stars Bastian Brinch Pedersen (who is also the co-director and producer of the film) as David, Rama Øzel as Ahmir, along with Daniel Hutera, Ali Öezkan, Iben Ma Bønnelycke, Nicolai Huan Nguyen, Camilla Ludvigsen and Kim Sønderholm ("Blood Fare", "The Winedancers", "Sinister Visions") playing Lars the policeman.

The attached picture is a still picture taken from the film showing Bastian Brinch Pedersen and Kim Sønderholm, being exhausted from escaping a horde of zombies and having finally found a safe resting place. Or is it?

Below is a link to my interview with Pat Mills I did for Mass Movement Magazine. For those that do not know who this is will more than likely know of his work and creations. To name a few there is Judge Dredd and ABC Warriors. Please enjoy.

I was thinking about last nights Sherlock season final and why the end was so good to make me cheer. It was because the whole episode is so tense that the one break in the middle with Christmas at the Holmes house was the only really light hearted part in the whole hour and a half. After being thoroughly disgusted by Mags and the all the mental anguish he puts everyone through by being a bully that no one can touch, including us the viewer, having someone playful back was what broke the tension that was putting us through a wringer that really never let up until then. 

To me this was the best episode of the whole series so far and if this continues next season whenever it comes out will be amazing.
