Collapse pics and info

Posted by Cory Casciato On October - 13 - 2009

COLLASPE logoJust got a batch of shots and some info direct from the set of Collapse, a zombie movie filming in Iowa. It looks to be a family drama about a man trying to provide for the family in the face of the zombie apocalypse. Here’s the official synopsis I received:

Chris Mulkey (Saving Grace, Cloverfield, North Country, Radio) stars as Robert Morgan, a farmer struggling to make ends meet. When zombies invade, Roger must protect his wife Molly, played by Karen Landry (Six Feet Under, St. Elsewhere) and his son Will. Roger fortifies his home, but as supplies dwindle, he is forced to fight his way through the small town of Plains Falls.

None of the images they sent had any zombies in them, but I know if there’s anything zombie fans like almost as much as zombies, it’s guns. And we have guns:

Roger likes guns.

After the break, more images and additional info…

Here’s a few more tidbits to whet your appetites, courtesy of production intern Ronnie M. Williams:

  • You will be happy to know that the directors, Mike Saunders and Jason Bolinger, really want these to be slow zombies, although the want to depict that these zombies have heightened senses, like a blind zombie is able to smell out Roger and gunshots/ noises attract more zombies. In addition, a few zombies will use weapons like farming tools.
  • When I talked with Mike Saunders, he said that he and Jason have wanted to make a zombie film for quite some time, but they purposely waited until know. Mike said that they didn’t want to have to make another zombie film when they thought of new ideas, so they waited until they generated all of their zombie ideas.
  • At one point in the film, Roger discovers a severed zombie head. He names the head “Bob” and decides to take it with him.
  • Roger also creates a zombie killer bat with nails and a saw blade in it. (I’ve included a photo)

One more casting tidbit: Linnea Quigley will appear as “Coach Bell.”

    Why haven’t you any shots of the Welsh actor Dylan Boyd and his Iowa born wife April. You’re dealing with dynamite there. Give them the publicity they deserve!
