Image Entertainment keeps zombies alive with their latest Jay Hayden starrer, State Of Emergency which hits DVD on April 16, 2013. From the trailers and clips, this one looks like a mix betweet 28 Days Later, Quarantine and Dawn Of the Dead. Check out the latest clips and images below. Plus you can pre-order too!
Like the vampire trend, zombies are showing up everywhere thanks to the brilliant Walking Dead show. You know when zombies are featured in several commercials (even State Farm Insurance has one) the trend will soon be killed. State Of Emergency looks promising though from the trailer and the clip below. Jay Hayden does his smoldering look wearing form fitting shirts while sweating so the shirt sticks to him just so as he unloads all over zombies looking to take a bite out of him. It's a simple plot where an explosion leaks out from a military bio-weapons plant and turns people into zombies and a few lucky ones are just out of reach are they are in such superior shape that they are unaffected. They band together to fight the mutants and the military which naturally always wants to keep these things hush hush.
[callout title=State Of Emergency Movie Synopsis]After an explosion unleashes the contents of a military bio-weapons plant, the unsuspecting populace is transformed into a roaming army of flesh-eating zombies. Trapped in the quarantine zone, Jim finds himself cut off, confused and fighting for his own survival. Contacted by a small band of others unaffected by the toxins, Jim sets out to reach their besieged warehouse. Becoming the survival group's de-facto leader, he struggles to keep order as they hunker down, fortify their stronghold and arm themselves against the attacking mutants. Fragmentary radio reports from outside hint at a last-ditch government rescue plan.
