“Infected” to Premier at Worcester’s Rock and Shock Convention
Wednesday, October 03, 2012
Infected, Woodhaven Films' latest offering, will make its world premiere at Rock and Shock on Saturday, Oct. 13. Like Inkubus before it, Infected features an all-star cast including Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill), William Forsythe (The Rock, Boardwalk Empire), Christy Romano (Kim Possible, Mirrors 2) and Tom DeNucci (Inkubus, Self Storage). As its name implies, Infected involves a blood virus that infects a small group of hunters, turning their routine hunting outing into a battle for survival.
Although the current horror landscape is flooded with zombie movies, Infected star Tom DeNucci believes that his new film stands alone.
“It’s not your typical zombie movie. I think people will see that it leans towards being more of an outbreak movie,” said DeNucci. “It’s got a survival aspect to it that I don’t think a lot of zombie films have. It’s definitely not your father’s zombie movie.”
Like any great horror film, Infected throws a few curveballs at the audience, according to DeNucci.
“I really think the ending of the film will take everyone by surprise,” DeNucci said. “We really flip the whole movie upside down in the last 10 minutes and go in a different direction that I don’t think audiences will see coming.”
“Michael Madsen has a pretty reckless performance in it, which I think people are really going to like. As for Forsythe, he can do some things that are so small and subtle that just hit you like a ton of bricks. It’s incredible what he can accomplish with just one look,” said DeNucci.
Check out the world premiere of Infected on Saturday, October 13 at 9 p.m. at the Rock and Shock convention in Worcester. The convention will take place in both the DCU Center and The Palladium.
