PEI Needs Zombies!

So, we're shooting a web series this summer, based on the two Bimbo Zombie Killers! shorts (you can see them here and here) called Bimbo Zombie Killers! Undead in the Water. It's the final chapter and will undoubtedly be the most elaborate web series ever produced here on PEI to date, until next year maybe.  We have a cast of almost 20 people and another 30-40 zombies (and still more are coming onboard each day).

We're doing all our own FX, and we're not talking crappy half-assed face painted zombies - but fully made up in custom made foam latex prosthetic makeup. There'll be strange voodoo props, fake weapons (shotguns, axes and sledgehammers), as much blood as we can possibly produce. Fake arms and legs, as much gore and odd little bits and corpses as we can stand. Even an undead frog.

And a whole lot more I don't want to mention since it'll ruin the surprise. Now the thing is, there are some folks who would love to be involved but simply can't because they live too far away. NOT A PROBLEM! I have a few friends who live out of province and  overseas even who are going to be in it. I'm sending them shots of the areas we'll be shooting, they will then go out and find something comparable in their area. I will send them a care package of zombie makeup and a description of some shots I can use. Using an HD camera they'll simply shoot their own zombie footage, send it to me and after a little editing and colour correction, they're in the movie.

So if you think you might be interested and have an HD camera (and a good internet connection to upload the footage) get in touch and let me know ( If you have any questions, please let me know. We'll be shooting throughout July and August and possibly September with an October 31st, 2012 release date in mind.

And, if you are on PEI and you wanted to get involved, we have a Facebook group we're using to keep track of everything. And remember, while it's awesome to have more zombies, keep in mind we are tying to make a movie so you will be expected to act accordingly.

Bimbo Zombie Killers! Undead in the Water Teaser

Things are slowly progressing on this project. Not slowly in a bad way, but in the right sort of way. I have just the ending to write, basically the the last episode and a half. I've a few ideas that'll be tricky to make just right. We'll see how it all goes.

There's going to be massive amount of stuff generated for the online shop. A whole line of mix and match generic zombie prosthetics, plus a few full face character ones. A couple latex masks, not the pullover type, but a full face and ears with an elastic strap. I'm hoping a silicone mask. And several little props as well, hopefully including severed arms.

We did up a quick teaser this weekend as well a poster.

And now, the teaser.

The Borom Demon

Did the first shoot for what will eventually become "The Secret Lives of Demons, Volume 2". In reality it was a product shot and a character that was supposed to be in the first book, but because of a bad mould and time it got cut out, so here it is. And it's awesome.

Should you stumble upon this and wonder, "Where the hell can I get this?" Head over to The Monkey Rodeo and check it out. It's $55 and full of Borom Demony foam latex prosthetic-y goodness. Also it includes 12 resin teeth. Or you can email me directly from here with your order at, give me your PayPal email and your mailing address, specify you're looking this particular piece and I'll take it from there.

CASTING for Bimbo Zombie Killers! Web Series

This is really only open for folks who are going to be on Prince Edward Island this summer. For the most part, if you're not and you'd like to be in a cheesy horror series, there's more info at the end. The goal is a 12 part series, each episode 5-6 minutes long. It may be fewer episodes, but it the script is not totally finished at this point.

As of today, May 10th, we're still casting 3 more of the lead(ish) female roles.
Ginger: doesn't have too much dialog, the character's a bit of a prissy beauty queen type so it's more about her actions then how's she's written - at least at this point in time. ALREADY CAST

Roxxy: quite a bit of dialog. She's not part of the main group, but is used to bridge the gap between the main characters and what's going on. Lots of exposition.

Daisy: one of the evil rednecks, the only female of their group and it's unclear exactly what the relationship between her and the other area. Sister, wife, cousin? I don't know, doesn't matter. Sort of abrasive, den mother sort of a group of idiots. CAST on MAY12th.

The script is still in development, so more roles may be needed. I'll post any updated information here or on the Bimbo Zombie Killers! group on Facebook.

And of course there's zombies, a shitload of zombies are needed.

The way the scheduling will work is this: we intend to shoot on Sundays. And since it's a series so not everyone will be needed for every episode, the plan is to alternate as many people as possible every 2nd weekend. So hopefully no one will be expected to show up every weekend, but every 2nd weekend. And alternate shoots will be arranged depending on schedules, we might shoot a night here or there, or a Saturday. Or even just shoot a few minutes with someone on a Sunday morning before letting them go and shooting with another group the rest of the day. In short, this should be as flexible a shoot as possible overall.

Alright, so here's something we're offering. I've got a couple friends who are not local who are participating in the project. They're going to be zombies in the series. So how is that going to work? Well, the overall feel of the series is meant to be as cheesy and rather clumsy as the two previous shorts that were made, so I'm not at all concerned about continuity anymore and that makes filmmaking so much more fun and this idea should work pretty well.

So how are they involved? I'm taking a few selected scenes where there's random zombie shots and letting them know, and to keep the look consistent, sending them some prosthetics and shots of our local zombies. Using their own HD camera, they will then do a few shots of their own that they will then send to me and will be inserted into the final piece. I'll colour correct and whatnot to make it match as close as possible, so it will appear, if you're paying attention, that they were part of the main shoot.

And that's it. If you're not on PEI this summer and you'd like to get in the series in a couple shots as a zombie, maybe your and a few friends just lumbering towards the camera, running through the woods, or getting shot - whatever. I'll pick out a couple shots, 4-5 and you can film them yourself and I'll edit you in.

If you're interested, join the Facebook group and post something about what I mentioned here and someone will be in touch to work out the fine details.

Fist of the Oni

 Got another new prop finally done today, the moulding process was just a little slow but I finally got it cast and painted up today and the first one from the mould was pretty much perfect.

This particular Demonic Antiquity is called the Fist of the Oni, they were created for demon hunters who needed a little extra oomph when fighting demons hand to hand. They're imbued with the soul of an Oni Demon, giving the user their power. find them online here for sale for only $20!
