BrinkVision releases the critically acclamied documentary style underground cult film SHADOW ZOMBIE on VOD and Limited Edition DVD April 21st. SHADOW ZOMBIE stars Kim Filth, who lives with his dad, sells weed to skaters, writes poetry, and snorts painkillers to get through the day. Directed by Jorge Torres-Torres, SHADOW ZOMBIE Shooting under near-documentary conditions in and around Lafayette, Louisiana, Jorge Torres-Torres operates by peopling his film with a coterie of genuine Acadiana misfits. As the imagery swerves like a junkie's waking nightmare from handicap actuality to grotesque realism, a shadow world is hinted at, visible from the one we live in but decidedly separate from it. The merciless and at times unexpectedly poignant observation of Kim's world dares to see through to the human core of a drug addict or clinically depressed clown.
Meet Kim Filth, and enter his horror-film existence - based on fact and blended with fiction. Kim lives with his dad, sells weed to skaters, writes poetry, and snorts painkillers to get through the day. By night, he likes to stroll around painted up as his alter ego, Shadow Zombie, which is how he meets registered nurse and part-time clown Brandi. What follows is a brief romance marked by destruction by the very real phantoms emanating from Kim's dead-end present and Brandi's traumatic past. As captured by Jorge Torres-Torres under near-documentary conditions, the film chronicles a coterie of genuine misfits in its merciless observation of Kim's world, daring to see past the facades of troubled souls through to their human core.
