PRINCE CHARLES DISCOVERY SCREEN 2 - FRIDAY 23 AUGUST
Director: Fernando Alle. With: Pedro Barão Dias, Maria Leite, Joaquim Guerreiro, João Vilas. USA/Portugal 2018. 83 mins.
UK PREMIERE - Best known at FrightFest for his hilariously scorching original shorts PAPA WRESTLING, BANANA MOTHERF**KER and his ‘Turn your Bloody Phone Off’ sting, it’s hardly surprising that director Fernando Alle has now entered the Troma Universe with this all-stops-out gore-fest. Fearless soldier Maria and superhuman strongman TS-347 are being pursued by a military cell responsible for scientific experiments resulting in a zombie apocalypse. When they meet Pedro, a man with few ambitions and a great hangover, together they try to escape to a safe place, even though complications arise in the form of a nuclear bomb.
