The Zombie King is a British horror comedy film starring Edward Furlong and Corey Feldman. The film is directed by Aidan Belizaire and is based on a story by Jennifer Chippindale and Rebecca-Clare Evans. The film is the first project from Northern Girl Productions and was scheduled for release in summer 2012.
Samuel Peters (Edward Furlong), once an ordinary man, dabbles in the laws of voodoo to bring his wife back from the grave. He soon encounters the god of malevolence, Kalfu (Corey Feldman), and makes a pact with him to destroy the underworld and bring chaos to earth. In return, he will become the Zombie King and walk the earth for eternity with his late wife. But as the growing horde of zombies begins to wipe out a countryside town, the government creates a perimeter around the town and employs a shoot-on-sight policy. Trapped within the town, the locals, an unlikely bunch of misfits, must fight for their lives and unite in order to survive.
The film went into production in the U.K. on 20 November 2011 and was shot over 21 days.
McCluskey originally planned a release for the film in December 2012. In 2013, the film was released on DVD in Germany in April, and Japan in May. In July, Carousel Media announced it was authoring the DVD.
