An homage to the 70′s B-movie Drive In theater experience, including fake intermissions and commercials. The film itself is zombie horror: Bubba’s Chili Parlor, a restaurant in rural Texas, becomes ground zero for a worldwide zombie epidemic after Bubba unwittingly serves chili infected with a mutated strain of Mad Cow Disease.
The film was shot guerilla style – on one occasion, the local police held the cast and crew at gunpoint, responding to passersby’s 9-11 calls that described bloody bodies lying on the road and people with guns. Cast and crew stayed in a run down two bedroom apartment – all 30 or so. People slept in the hall, in the kitchen, wherever they could find a place to lie their sleeping bag.
