Zombie sequel Festival of the Living Dead — filming in Vancouver this Spring — takes place 55 years after the events of George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.
It is 55 years after the original zombie attack decimated the Earth, way back in 1968, and the horrific incident has become the subject of morbid goth nostalgia.
A cluster of teenagers head to The Burning Zombie Festival, out in the middle of nowhere, for a fun, cool weekend of Halloween-y fun and music.
But when a second blast of radioactive space dust hits and the Festival becomes a feast of death, the teenagers can either cowboy up and defend themselves or be devoured by a fresh host of the Living Dead.
