I AM ALONE is tearing up the festival circuit and the fans of Phoenix will soon get their chance to be apart of this crafty film. Check out the screening details ahead and look for a review from us soon.
I AM ALONE, a survival award-winning “horrormentary” starring Gareth David-Lloyd (Torchwood, Sherlock Holmes 2010, Dark Signal), and Gunner Wright (Love 2011, Highway to Dhampus), will be presented at the Phoenix Comicon Fan Fest 2015, followed by a Spotlight Panel.
“We are so fortunate and excited to have ‘I Am Alone’ play the Phoenix Comicon and share the experience directly with the fans!,” says leading actor Gareth David-Lloyd, who is well-known for his character Ianto Jones in the BBC television series Torchwood and Doctor Who.
I Am Alone has recently taken the horror film festival circuit by storm, racking up wins for Best Zombie Film and Best Actor at Fright Night Film Fest (Louisville, KY), Audience Choice and Best Director awards at RIP Horror International Film Festival (Hollywood, CA), and a second Best Actor prize for Gareth David-Lloyd at Scare-A-Con (Liverpool, NY).
The film tells the story of a small town being infected, almost instantly, by an unknown virus while an adventure reality show is being filmed in the area. The TV host’s video logs, found a few days after his own terrific infection, may contain the clues that will help the authorities find a cure and save the world from the apocalypse.
Director Robert Palmer (Gene Simmons: Family Jewels) and producer Michael A. Weiss reinvented the subgenre of horror by blending elements of classic zombie flicks, documentary, surveillance cam, blood curdling suspense, and a world they are very familiar with; reality TV.
“Our goal was to delve into new territory within the horror genre by taking the survival of man to its extreme. To make our character’s journey feel raw and authentic we used different storytelling techniques and employed various shooting formats; all with the intention of contrasting humanity against brutality amidst the unfolding apocalypse,” says director Robert Palmer.
The creative duo of Palmer and Weiss are also preparing a new horror feature film, The Patch, about four friends who must fight for their lives in a pumpkin patch.
