Today's evening Herald ran an article about a zombie film shot right here in Ireland. Looks quite promising so far.

Some pretty cool stills from the Irish made zombie film Portrait of a Zombie have been released. The film is due for release next year. The teaser trailer goes live in 5 days time at portraitofazombie.com
The makeup effects look pretty slick.







Sure would be nice to get a really decent horror film come out of Ireland for a change.. Here's hoping this is it.

Most of it was shot in Finglas (includingthat pic). There were also scenes shot in Ballymun and the city centre.

wow i was way off i thought it looked like columbanus near the windy arbour luas. ooops, is it a straight up horror, or is it light hearted, dark humour, etc will it be shown in the IFI or general release,

It's a horror/comedy, with the emphasis on very dark humour. It has docu/mockumentary stylings too.
I'm not sure about the release, but I'm guessing limited release. I'd be mazd ifthe IFI didn't pick it up.

yea looks cooler than described to me. A friend of mine asked me to be a zombie in this flick as a favour to her bro as he's making the film but I was in Rome, bad timing, woulda been cool to be a zombie!

Nice to see some of the online bloggers have begun supporting the film.


Trailer is up tomorro, I'm so excited!

Almost forgot, there is a little behind the scenes sneak peek up on the Facebook pae. It involves guns and screaming

I am surprised you didn't post about this in the horror forum.
