Remember, kids- Rabies = racist zombies.

This is different from other Confederate zombie stories where people just get eaten- this one has a social commentary attached. Neo “rebels” talk the same, think the same, look the same, they don’t really rebel against anything. They adhere to their upbringing of hating “outsiders”.

IDEA:

Tannersville is a still segregated small Southern town with a Confederate Cemetery- as many small Southern towns have and highlight with historical markers.

Bobby Calhoun is a young good ole boy who has been raised to wait until The South rises again, like the generations before him who think The Civil War never really ended. They still honor those like Nathan Bedford Forrest, burn crosses in their spare time and put on Civil War re-enactments, but change the outcome to where The South won.

Edie Webb is is quasi-girlfriend, still figuring herself out- raised Southern Baptist, raised to have kids and bring them up in the church. She loses her virginity to Bobby in the cemetery.

Unbeknownst to them, her blood on a full moon awakens long dead soldiers. This is due to a magic spell done by a CSA leader to awaken his troops to seek vengeance against the “Northern aggression” or anyone who by existing, attempts to ruin their way of life, “as the good lord intended it”.

“Murders” of white people happen that rock Tannersville. These “victims” happened to be glad to see the soldiers march again, until they got eaten by them.

The victims appear dead for three days, then become zombies themselves…

Hanh Le, Nairey Pygosian Ramirez, Sanjit Patel, and Tim Smith are new graduate students at the local college that lured them from out of state with the promise of financial support, then tried to load work on them and discriminate against them. This group of minorities and Tim, along with local Adam Jenkins, figure out what’s going on.  Samara Brown is a young black woman who grew up in Tannersville who stands with the cause. Her brother Lavarius and his friend Joe Edmonds also help the out of towners with the Rebel zombies.

Edie and Samara are attracted to each other. When they kiss, the zombies’ heads explode.

The future of Tannersville and towns like it are at stake…

What will have to happen for them to survive?

We cruised along Mulholland Drive last night from Encino to the 90068, the Hollywood Hills to our destination over looking the town.

If you haven’t seen the titular David Lynch movie, there may be something wrong with you.

Funny thing is, my friend Bryce, NYC photographer extraordinaire, went to the party destination the night before, thinking it was the right evening. Instead of the party house, he walked into a dinner party at Kyle McLaughlin‘s home- star of many a David Lynch projects like Twin Peaks.  Talk about a LA experience.

If you know Lynch’s work- then we have no body switching to report to you than this bit of serendipity way above the sparkling lights of the city.

Here is what we did get into with @SuiteCaroline @Teigehertales @timbannock  @laurienlandry and @bryce_ward and Lil Ashley and Will.

If we were, we would all be doomed, dOOMED, no DOOMED with a capital double D, I tell ya.

We’re going to have more for you soon- fieldtrips to exotic locations (for West-Coasters at least): corn maze, fields of hay.

But for now- this is our teaser-

An American Zombie in Los Angeles – watch more funny videos

Yesterday was so much fun, courtesty of Brandie June and one her wonderful just for fun productions.  We shot some footage for our Halloweenie Episode.

We were at a red wedding- yeah you heard right.

Zombies attacked and transformed some people right after their nuptuals, all under swaying palm trees.

There were even pint size zombies running around.  You’ll see more when Brandie has a gallery exhibit up of all the fun times.
