Hard to believe that it has been five years since the release of the independent film Dead Weight. Sure, this post might be a little jaded since I’ve known one half of the writing/directing team for, Mr. John Pata, for something close to ten years now, when he was trying to peddle his little zombie short film, Better Off Undead. I can’t say how impressed I’ve been with what John has accomplished in those ten years either, and can’t wait to see where the next ten take him.
Dead Weight is a zombie film, but not like most zombie films that you’ve seen. It really is a study of the human condition and what some will do under certain circumstances. Touching. Brutal. Tragic.
To celebrate this 5-Year Anniversary, they are having a screening at the Time Community Theater in Oshkosh, WI, on April 1st. The movie will start at 7pm, followed by a Q&A. If you haven’t seen this film, and can make the trip to Wisconsin, I would highly recommend it. You can read my full review of it HERE.
