Full Details

In a land of the undead, Ben and Mickey must learn to survive each other

Be prepared to find yourself glued to your screen in a zombie-like stare as you follow the fates of two baseball-loving survivors of a zombie apocalypse, making their way across a countryside littered with the undead. A refreshing and unique take on the zombie film, this horror-road movie hybrid is a tense, funny and inventive entry in a stale genre.

At FilmBuff, we strive to feature daring and unique filmmaking voices, and first-time Jeremy Gardner exemplifies this. Shot on a micro budget, this riveting film showcases stellar performances and an art-house movie sensibility, lending weight and meaning to the protagonists fight for physical and mental survival. With a killer soundtrack and a terrifying and claustrophobic final act, Jeremy’s directorial debut sets itself miles ahead of the crowded (and slow-moving) zombie pack.

About Jeremy

Jeremy Gardner was born and raised in Kissimmee, Florida. After moving to the northeast to pursue an acting career, he wrote the screenplay for "The Battery" based on an audition tape he made for a horror film casting contest. Two years of rewrites and fundraising attempts later, he asked ten of his friends for six hundred dollars apiece in exchange for a stake in the finished film. In August of 2011, with six thousand dollars and a cast and crew of five, he shot the movie in two weeks in the woods of northern Connecticut. "The Battery" is his first feature film.
