This Friday Chiller premiere's a new horror film, Remains
. Clearly zombie's are the new thing and if you're a fan of The Walking Dead
, you're not going to want to miss this. Based on the graphic novel, Remains
focuses on survivors of a post-apocalyptic Reno, Nevada as they work together to destroy the zombie population.

, Rescue Me's
Tawny Cypress and more.
Executive producer, Steve Niles (30 Days of Night
), recently spoke with press about the film.On the popularity of zombies and why they're so amazing:
I think horror always reflects our general fears and anxieties in society. And right now, without getting too serious, right now we're actually afraid of other people. We're afraid of disease, we're afraid of being invaded by people who look kind of like us, so you know the way we sort of express those fears are through what better than this mindless zombie hoard that wants to eat us. You know, these - our neighbors. I mean, they're our friends and neighbors who want to kill us and eat us too, because the reality of it, it's the real world stuff is so horrifying and zombies are a great way for us to sort of work through those fears, and that's just something I feel about horror in general...On how Remains deals with killing zombies differently from what has been portrayed so far:
...everybody knows how to deal with zombies, you know? You board up in the house and you wait it out. you shoot them as they come to you, you know? But, in Remains
that doesn't necessarily work because of the event that creates these zombies there's actually two different kinds. And one of them was slightly more advanced and they're eating the others and they're evolving, and there's - so you can't - in Remains
you can never sit back in your boarded up house and be comfortable, because the zombies will sooner or later figure out how to either climb in or pull the boards off, so I had a lot of fun with that. I had a lot of fun playing with zombie conventions, because there's not just the Walking Dead
zombies, there's the George Romero zombies, the (Folchi) zombies, there's the Return of the Living Dead
zombies, there's the remake of Dawn of the Dead
zombies, and I really tried to kind of have fun with all of them, you know?
