We are a group of committed filmmakers, digital storytellers, artists, actors, musicians, writers, and rabble rousers brought together by Adam Schabow (Blogging Blue, Dane101, Rants Without Pants, The Shabelles, Christmas in April). Schabow's frustration with the current political landscape of his home state and country, along with his love of classic horror films, inspired the idea for The New World Horror.
The New World Horror is a full-length Wisconsin-based film shooting in the summer of 2014. A stylish take on the zombie genre, with a nostalgic feel and respect towards cinematic details, it tells the story of eight strangers who find life turned upside down when a demonic virus from hell transforms those at a local Tea Party rally into zombies. It’s Night of the Living Dead-meets-Evil Dead as the survivors band together to fend off the approaching End Times.
A host of local actors and artists lend their talent to the film, including Dana Pellebon (Madison Performance Collective), Jennifer A. Grundy (Quasimondo Physical Theatre Co., Chamber Theater), Steve Golla (The Amateur Monster Movie, Snowflakes), Greg Johnson (Mediatrix, Hole in the Wall), Tawnie Thompson (Don’t Go to the Reunion), Carmela Weise (Incest Death Squad), Joe Price (Garage Spore) and Harris Lemberg, with art direction by Fernanda Loaiza-Renfro.
