ZOMBIE PATROL wins Horror Screenplay Contest & goes into production

My script ZOMBIE PATROL won the International Horror Screenplay Competition run by Visceral Films – and the movie is scheduled for production later in 2016, with the principal location being the Land of Illusion Horror Theme Park in Ohio.

I’m rather chuffed about this.

Here’s what the Visceral Films site says:

“Geoff Holder’s story works in so many different ways- it’s a character-driven horror rompfest complete with humor and a great story arc. It highlights the Land of Illusion theme park and the mission of the contest perfectly.

The competition was intense- Geoff’s work was selected from within a field of other writers spanning the globe from the US to the Middle East, Africa, and Europe.

As winner of the contest, Mr. Holder will have Zombie Patrol produced, be credited as its writer, and be paid commensurate with an independent $2m feature length project. Additionally, he will have a first look deal with Visceral Films. 

Zombie Patrol immediately enters development and becomes part of Visceral’s 2016 slate of film projects.”

I’ll be posting regular updates as the amazing production team take the movie through pre-production into the filming phase.

NB Mmmmm….brains!
