As the last autumn leaves slowly peel away from the trees, a mysterious airborne virus ravages the planet, and within a few hours billions die. Victims suffer horrific deaths as their internal organs liquefy, and whole towns’ expire within minutes. Soon cities become infested breeding grounds for the new apocalyptic virus, and by the end of the first day there are only a handful of survivors.
This taut, psychological thriller delivers on every level and viewers are left in no doubt that in a world turned upside down, silence is truly the only saviour. Based on the acclaimed novel by David Moody ‘AUTUMN’ will make it’s U.K. DVD debut on 10th May 2010, released by Brightspark Productions.
A small group of ordinary strangers are soon forced to work together to stay alive. The survivors are lead by Michael (Dexter Fletcher – Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Doom) a lonely soft ware consultant, and Carl (Dickon Tolson – Peak Practice, Eastenders) an ill-tempered mechanic. When Michael and the survivors escape from the infested city to an isolated country house, they discover the real horror has only begun!
When the dead start to gruesomely reanimate the group have naive hopes that the “walkers”, or the “meat suites”, would decompose and simply fall apart but they discover the longer the reanimated corpses are alive the more they learn, the cleverer they get, the more aggressive and treacherous they become – the more they became killing machines.
When Phillip Evans (David Carradine – Kill Bill, Kung Fu) is discovered as a lone survivor in the lifeless city, a new hope emerges, but nothing is as it seems in a world turned upside down, and hope soon turns into terror. In order to endure the winter each survivor must find the strength within themselves to fight their personal demons and find the courage to combat a war against the vicious dead.
