Synopsis

Two former baseball players, Ben (Jeremy Gardner) and Mickey (Adam Cronheim), cut an aimless path across a desolate New England.  They stick to the back roads and forests to steer clear of the shambling corpses that patrol the once bustling cities and towns.  In order to survive, they must overcome the stark differences in each other’s personalities—Ben embraces an increasingly feral, lawless, and nomadic lifestyle—while Mickey is unable to accept the harsh realities of the new world.  Mickey refuses to engage in Ben’s violent games and longs for the creature comforts he once took for granted.  A bed, a girl, and a safe place to live.

When the men intercept a radio transmission from a seemingly thriving, protected community, Mickey will stop at nothing to find it, even though it is made perfectly clear that he is not welcome.

Buzz

“A TRIUMPHANT FEAT OF DRAMATIC HORROR”  – Dread Central

“ONE OF THE GREATEST ZOMBIE FILMS YOU MAY EVER SEE”  – Screen Invasion

“While the (deserved) success of THE WALKING DEAD has left us with an overabundance of zombie fiction, THE BATTERY is a unique (even arty) take on the genre. Moreover, it also proves that despite having a budget in the four figures, if you’re creative there’s no reason that you can’t make a perfectly decent, occasionally great film. ” – JoBlo’s Movie Emporium

The Battery is a real discovery and one of my favorite genre films of the year so far.” Shock Till You Drop

Programmer’s Opinion

So you think you’ve seen everything that a zombie movie can throw at you. Well, I’ve got something to tell you, you haven’t. Yes, there are zombies and yes they are an ominous threat but THE BATTERY is an anti-zombie zombie movie. It is about the quiet moments between the attacks shared by Ben and Mickey, two former baseball teammates who are now relying on each other to survive the apocalypse. Fans of zombies will appreciate the moments when things go to hell and film fans looking for something deeper will witness the humour, fears, and developing relationship of two very different personalities who are forced to travel a lonely road. – John Allison
