THE countdown is on to the release of an eagerly anticipated horror film set on Anglesey.
Director Ryan Kift, of Llanrug, and co-writer Sian Davies, of Llanfairynghornwy, will hold a premiere for Zombies From Ireland at Cell B in Blaenau Ffestiniog this Halloween.
Ryan said he was negotiating with an international distribution deal, and added it was a “weird” feeling to complete the film after two years.
He said: “I got so used to planning and executing shoots that it became my life, but myself and Sian are elated and can't wait for everyone to see it!”
The film follows the chaos after a government swine flu vaccine turns a gang of convicts into zombies, who are shipwrecked on Llanddwyn beach while being transported to the UK from Ireland.
The low budget film features Big Brother stars Glyn Wise and Marcus Akin, with the former providing one of Ryan’s favourite moments from the shoot.
Ryan said: “Marcus had just finished his scene in Llanddwyn and he was messing about, scaring people on the beach when he suddenly disappeared out of my camera view .
“He’d managed to fall down the only man sized hole on the whole beach! That one might appear in the extras.”
Zombies From Ireland has attracted interest from S4C, the BBC and a number of horror websites across the globe.
Ryan said: “It seems to have grabbed everyone's imagination.
“We have done this with blood sweat and loads of tears believe me!”
