Horror has a new homeland. INFECTION is the first zombie film made in Venezuela, and it sets the apocalyptic devastation against a backdrop of the very real sociopolitical turmoil ravaging the country. After an outbreak of a new strand of the rabies virus turns the population into crazed, bloodthirsty cannibals, a young doctor finds himself separated from his son, with the rapidly decaying city and sprawling countryside standing between them. Navigating his way through the plague-infested streets and marauder-filled backwoods roads, he must use every resource at his disposal to find his way back to his only child and hopefully unlock the secret to a cure for the deadly disease.
“The special effects impress” (Pip Ellwood-Hughes, Entertainment Focus) in the remarkable debut from writer-director Flavio Pedota. A collision of worlds between Mad Max and 28 Days Later, INFECTION is a breakneck thriller where the survival of an entire species may depend on the survival of one man.
Dark Sky Films will release INFECTION on digital and DVD on 14th April 2020.
