If there's one thing we can take away from watching the TV series "The Walking Dead," it's that humans are a lot more dangerous than the zombies. So, you might say the unwritten rule in a post-apocalyptic zombie world is: Don't trust anyone. Ever!
"Here Alone" is a new post-apocalyptic survival thriller that seemingly deals with a similar "Walking Dead' theme, in which infected humans are to be feared, but more importantly, human survivors are not to be trusted.
Lucy Walters, one of the stars on the 50 Cent-produced crime series "Power," plays a survivor named Ann, who's been living in the wilderness for a year, ever since a mysterious zombie-like virus caused the world to fall apart, which decimated her life with her husband (Shane West; TV's "Salem") and young child.
While scavenging for food, Ann, against her better judgment, helps out a couple of strangers, a young teen girl (Gina Piersanti, "It Felt Like Love") and her badly injured step-father (Adam David Thompson; Amazon's "Mozart in the Jungle"). Because they are in desperate need of food and shelter, she decides to take them in. And though they seem harmless enough, Ann will soon have to face the consequence of that decision.
Winner of the Audience Award at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, "Here Alone" marks the feature directorial debut of commercial and "Funny or Die" video director Rod Blackhurst, who is also known for co-directing with Brian McGinn on Netflix's critically-acclaimed true-crime documentary "Amanda Knox."
Written by David Ebeltoft, "Here Alone" will be hitting theaters March 31st, with a VOD release to follow.
In HERE ALONE, a young woman struggles to survive on her own in the wake of a mysterious epidemic that has decimated society and forced her deep into the unforgiving wilderness, until she encounters two other survivors who make her confront her past while putting all of their lives at risk.
