Written and produced by Jeff Miller and Jason Ancona (co-writers and producers of AXE GIANT: THE WRATH OF PAUL BUNYAN), the film's director is Rene Perez (THE DEAD AND THE DAMNED).
VOLCANO ZOMBIES is about a sheriff who must rescue an estranged family from a mountain during a volcano eruption and fight off a horde of lava-filled zombies that have shot out of the volcano, brought to life by a curse.
Other cast includes Tom Downey (AXE GIANT, SORORITY PARTY MASSACRE), Moniqua Plante (“Femme Fatales”), Robert F. Lyons (DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW, 10 TO MIDNIGHT), Nicole Cummins (LOGAN), Kevin Norman (“Melissa & Joey”), Kyle T. Heffner (RUNAWAY TRAIN, “Bizarro George” from “Seinfeld”), Julia Lehman (CHEERLEADER MASSACRE 2), Tom Nagel (HILLSIDE CANNIBALS), Jenny Lin (PIRANHACONDA), Robert Amstler (ALIEN SHOWDOWN), and Morgan Lester (JOHN CARTER).
Trejo plays a Native American warrior who knows perhaps too much about the cursed mountain range.
VOLCANO ZOMBIES filmed in several locations over three states, including around active volcanoes in Lassen Volcanic National Park, California.
Miller’s and Ancona’s companies are producing, along with casting director and co-producer Mark Sikes. The film will start making the rounds of distributors this week.
