Disaster L.A.: The Last Zombie Apocalypse (2014) - Release Announced

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of independent filmmaker Turner Clay's Disaster L.A.: The Last Zombie Apocalypse Begins Here. The sci-fi zombie thriller stars Justin Ray, Jerod Meagher, Stephanie Estes, Ron Hanks, Michael Taber, Dennis Leech, Ali Williams, Morgan Jackson and Kendall Mayhew, and streets on September 23rd.

Official Synopsis: A group of friends desperately trying to escape the toxic smoke that is the deadly result of a meteor shower strike in the middle of Los Angeles. In its wake, neither friends nor strangers are safe from each other. The only hope for survival is to try to reach the coast before it's too late.

"As a kid," Clay says, "I was blown away by Romero's Dawn of the Dead. I realized what makes zombies so fascinating is to imagine what you'd do if they were real. Then I started to notice zombies doing just that: evolving into faster, more realistic creatures. Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later is one of my all-time favorite zombie films because it was really scary. When I found out it was done with a small crew and a cheap digital camera, I was so inspired, I decided to buy my own camera and go all out for the zombie genre."

Clay's first effort was State of Emergency, about a small town's chemical facility that explodes, releasing deadly toxins that cause mutations in the town's residents.

"Turner is an up and coming filmmaker, so for WB, distributing this film was a logical move. In spite of our vast horror library, we only have only a few films in the Zombie segment of the horror genre. This picture will complement our repertoire and continue to drive our physical & digital strength in the fourth quarter." said Jeff Baker, WBHE's Theatrical Catalog EVP and GM.

Warner has yet to detail tech specs or special features.
