Zombie Thriller The Revenant to Shock Fantasia July 12th

The Revenant is a zombie inspired comedy from first time director Kerry Prior. A special effects technician by trade, Prior breaks the mold by inventing a "jam-packed...urban decadence, [with] perverse gore, and outrageously ghoulish humour" (Fantasia). This film will have a Montreal premiere at Fantasia 2010 and fans of the gritty, or the shocking can have a look at the film at Fantasia below.

The synopsis for The Revenant here;

The Revenant is a story about an ancient pestilence recurring to infect modern society. Officer first class Bart Gregory is killed while fighting in the Middle East. His body is shipped back to the United States and laid to rest, but before the lid can be put on this tomb, Bart inexplicably awakens in his coffin and climbs from his grave. He is confused, horrified, a moldy, putrefying living corpse - a revenant" (The Revent).

Release Date: July 12th (Montreal Premiere).
