Wild Eye Releasing, with sales and distribution support provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has picked up writer/director Dustin Ferguson’s 2021 zombie-plague thriller, Hell of the Screaming Undead, for DVD distribution.  It is now slated for release on May 30,

The knee-jerk is, “dear lord, help us” when you first hear of a genre title such as Hell of the Screaming Undead.   That sounds micro budget … something cooked up in someone’s garage over the weekend.

However, when you take a closer look — after the initial shock wears off — you begin to take notice of some tell-tale signs that this might be a zombie plague movie worth your evening’s viewing enjoyment.

First, the filmmaker, Dustin Ferguson.  He has provided us with such delights over the years as Arachnado 2: Flaming Spiders, Moon of the Blood Beast, Nemesis 5: The New Model, Apex Predators and Amityville in the Hood.   And of course, Ebola Rex and Ebola Rex vs Murder Hornets.

He knows his audience and he certainly delivers exactly what they want … Hell of the Screaming Undead is no exception.

And then take a look at who is in it — a small cast to be sure (except for the zombie hoard) — but there are two damsels in distress.   Zombie plague, of course they are in distress, but to compound their problems, they are also taken captive by two escape cons.

The first is Mary, played by none other than Jennifer Nagel, star of the web series Malvolia: The Queen of Screams and such genre gems as director Shawn C. Phillips’ Amityville Karen, the aforementioned Amityville in the Hood and Ebola Rex and many, many more … she “is” literally Malvolia the Scream Queen.

The second is Heather, played by Traci Burr, another Ferguson alumni, who played Veronica in Ebola Rex Versus Murder Hornets and Katrina in his 2022 haunted house thriller, Beyond the Gates of Hell, plus she was Micatto in director James Balsamo’s 14 Ghosts.   And an up-and-coming Scream Queen in her own right.

You have to be sold by now.   More?   OK, the two escaped cons are Warren (Robert Allen Mukes — as Rufus in House of 1000 Corpses) and Trapper (Ken May — another Ferguson regular — Apex Predators, Ebola Rex Versus Murder Hornets and more).

And, as a bonus, this presentation of Hell of the Screaming Undead on DVD from Wild Eye Releasing on May 30 is the unseen director’s cut (not available as a streaming item).   So, come enjoy the zombie plague that has struck Los Angeles … the director and his cast say it all, a genre film to be enjoyed.
