Escaping the Dead

Martin Sonntag, Denmark, 2017

DK/FeatureHorror

The film starts during a typical day for the lead character, David. David is a marijuana pusher, but he is the kind of dealer who smokes more than he sells. When David and his partner in crime Ahmir gets in some serious money trouble and finds out that selling weed isn't gonna do it, they decide to try selling hard drugs as they get offered some cheap cocaine. But the cocaine turns out to have a terrible side effect, creating a giant zombie outbreak that spreads across the entirety of Copenhagen. The film then follows David and his bloody fight out of the city.
