Exclusive Storyboards from EVIL IN THE TIME OF HEROES!

From Doppelganger Releasing comes EVIL IN THE TIME OF HEROES, an epically scoped zombie flick which combined ancient myth with zombies and stars Billy Zane. Set in Greece, the film is directed by Yorgos Noussias and below is the official synopsis;

Thousands of years ago in ancient Greece, a horde of blood-thirsty zombies begin wreaking havoc on humans, and only a mysterious cloaked hero known as Prophitis (Billy Zane) and his otherworldly weapons can save them. Flash forward to modern-day Greece where Athens is once again plagued by the carnivorous undead, and a ragtag band of human survivors—a taxi driver, a pair of hot-blooded soldiers, and a doctor—is on the run. And the elusive Prophitis is back, too. But zombies are only half the problem, as Greece has been targeted for destruction with a mega-bomb in order to contain the growing zombie virus. So now, the remaining humans must race against both zombies and time to ensure their survival!

This one looks like a lot of fun. Find out more about the film here! And click on the exclusive storyboards below to make them grow!

Lemme axe you this question—what do you think of this AXEMAN Trailer?

Starring scream queens Tiffany Shepis, Brinke Stevens, Elissa Dowling, and Jamie Bernadette, plus NBA all star Scot Pollard (WTF?), AXEMAN is one it’s way to DVD and VOD on May 6th. Directed by Joston Theney, AXEMAN is described as;

An axe-wielding local legend slices and dices his way through some vacationing twenty-somethings in a blood-curdling movie experience.

A short but sweet premise, but with a cast like that, I’m interested. Here’s the trailer for AXEMAN below.
