It doesn’t seem like post-apocalyptic zombie films will be going away anytime soon. In fact, there seems to be a good amount of independent films that use this as the basis for their stories. Here Alone seems to be one of these films, but it looks and sounds like it will be a good one. The movie recently won the Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival, so that’s gotta say something about it. We now have a trailer for you to watch and it definitely sparked my interest.
After a terrible virus ravages human civilization, Ann finds herself living alone in a forest, foraging for supplies, and accompanied only by a radio that broadcasts a single transmission in French. Few animals even remain; the only survivors seem to be the roving hordes of infected creatures with a taste for human flesh. One fateful day, Ann crosses paths with two more survivors, Chris and Olivia. But after surviving on her own for so long, she struggles to relate to them and and their desire to settle down and start a new community. As Ann tells Chris, “Those who stay, die.”
The movie was directed by Rod Blackhurst, who is a former ski racer that wanted to be a filmmaker. Here Alone stars Lucy Walters, Gina Piersanti, Adam David Thompson and Shane West. There’s no word on when the movie will be released.
