Exclusive Introduction by Writer/Director L. Gustavo Cooper
Impressive direction and rich performances are what you get in this stunning film that harkens back to Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, leaving you wanting to see more. In the racially charged South of the 1960’s, the black population of a small town is blamed for the spread of a virulent plague. Bobby, a white mechanic, is racing through the countryside with his wife Carolyne. She was bitten by one of those infected and is fading fast. Awakening in a wrecked car with Carolyne missing, Bobby follows a trail of blood down the road towards a fateful encounter and an unthinkable choice.
