This Zombie Looks Pretty Dead

Here we have a new found-footage flick which has a different approach than your usual fare. Thanks to HM member Alien25 for the heads up, here we have our first look at Benjamin Wilkins’ Pretty Dead.

Imagine if you found out you was slowly becoming a zombie? What if no-one believed you and thought you was causing meaningless acts of cannibalism? Well, you’d document it, right? Heck, at the very least it would make a great horror flick and that is what we could have right here.The film stars Carly Oates, Ryan Shogren and Quantae Love.


“Regina Stevens has just passed her Medical Licensing exam. Her boyfriend Ryan has just proposed. The hard work Regina has put in throughout her life seemed like it was beginning to really pay off. That was until she woke up one day with an insatiable appetite for human flesh, no pulse and an impossibly heightened ability to heal. While attempting to unlock the mystery of how she can be alive, Regina, and a somewhat reluctant Ryan, begin to discover links between a parasitic fungus called cordycepts and her her new-found cravings for human flesh. Cravings they slowly learn will continue to intensify until they consume her mind, rendering her unconscious and helpless to keep the drive to feed at bay. Once the death count starts, Regina attempts to end it, but fails. Her botched suicide attempt lands her in the custody of the State and under the care of Dr. Daniel Romera, who after listening to her story, diagnoses her symptoms as Cotard’s Syndrome or “Walking Corpse Disease,” a dissociative psychological disorder in which the patient believes she is actually dead and often goes to horrific lengths to prove it. Composed entirely of footage obtained from the evidentiary archives of the 2009 US District Court case against the California State Health department for the return of Regina’s body to her family, this film begs the question: Is Regina just crazy, or is she something else?”
