THE REVENANTS

Horror, 2 women 2 men, 80-90 min.

“A zombie play with brains.” ~ Jon Kitley, KitleysKrypt.com

SYNOPSIS

A violent uprising of the undead forces two couples into hiding, and infected spouses take a turn for the worse.  Gary and Karen tether their turning partners, Molly and Joe, for the safety of all; but as Molly and Joe fall deeper into sickness, the question of whether or not they are still themselves becomes harder and harder to answer as they become more threatening.  As Gary and Karen come face to face with the true meaning of commitment, they must ask of each other: when does love die?
