Dead Before Dawn 3D follows a bunch of college kids who accidentally break an evil urn and end up inadvertently creating a curse that causes everyone they make eye contact with to kill themselves and turn into Zombie Demons, aka ZEMONS! With only 24 hours to reverse the curse and the fate of the entire world resting on their shoulders, the heroes race through the night in a bloody Winnebago, armed with a slew of homemade weapons, avoiding eye contact, dodging hicky’s and seducing Zemons. Expect strange happenings throughout the night as they try not to be Dead Before Dawn!

Over the past year Dead Before Dawn 3D has been traveling overseas and has been released around the world. It won the prestigious Perron Crystal Award for “Best Live Action 3D” in Liege, Belgium and closed the Tiff Next Wave Film Festival in Toronto.

Click HERE to check out an exclusive clip from the upcoming zom-com Dead Before Dawn 3D, which lurches into theatres on August 2. Directed by Niagara Falls native April Mullen (who shot most of the movie in her hometown), the film’s stars include Christopher Lloyd (in a very Christopher Lloyd-y role), Devon Bostick, Martha MacIsaac, Brandon Jay McLaren, Brittany Allen, and Kids in the Hall’s Kevin McDonald.

While Dead Before Dawn features its share of cadaverous cheerleaders drooling blood, it’s not a straightforward zombie story. That’s because these zombies aren’t just zombies, they’re demons too. Or to use the more technical term, they’re “zemons.” Sounds kinda cute!

The plot centres on a well-intentioned but apocalyptically clumsy young man named Casper Galloway (Bostick), who invites his college friends to visit a dusty old occult store belonging to his grandfather (played by Christopher Lloyd in the type of eccentric-old-man part we love him for). It’s a fun day until Casper, you know, breaks an ancient urn containing a catastrophic and irreversible curse. Once hexed, Casper and his buddies can’t look anyone in the eye—or else that person immediately kills themselves, only to rise again as a demonic, flesh-eating zemon. Judging by the trailer, the film features a generous portion of possessed moms and murderous football fans—as well as one pretty cool eighties camper van. Plus, lots of dudes crying.

And by the way, this blog post is cursed too. Check out the pics and clip below, or else you’ll probably turn into a flesh-eating cheerleader. – See more at:
