Back in February we learned that Scream Factory would be giving Jeremy Gardner's critically-acclaimed micro-budgeted zom-com THE BATTERY a DVD and Blu-ray release later this year. Last month we learned exactly when THE BATTERY would be hitting the shelves, with a release scheduled for September 16, and today we have the full details on what kind of special features we'll be seeing on the discs.
Jeremy Gardner's THE BATTERY has won rave reviews from both critics and audiences alike. Our own Chris Bumbray caught it at Fantasia last year and dug it, calling it 'a unique (even arty) take on the genre' in his review HERE.
Two former baseball players, Ben (Jeremy Gardner) and Mickey (Adam Cronheim), cut an aimless path across a desolate New England. They stick to the back roads and forests to steer clear of the shambling corpses that patrol the once bustling cities and towns. In order to survive, they must overcome the stark differences in each other’s personalities — Ben embraces an increasingly feral, lawless, and nomadic lifestyle, while Mickey is unable to accept the harsh realities of the new world. Mickey refuses to engage in Ben’s violent games and longs for the creature comforts he once took for granted — a bed, a girl and a safe place to live.
When the men intercept a radio transmission from a seemingly thriving, protected community, Mickey will stop at nothing to find it, even though it is made perfectly clear that he is not welcome.
Special Features will include:
- Audio Commentary with Writer/Producer/Director/Star Jeremey Gardner, Producer/Star Adam Cronheim and Producer/Director of Photography Christian Stella
- TOOLS OF IGNORANCE: The Making Of The Battery (90 minute documentary)
- Theatrical Trailer
- ROCK PLAZA CENTRAL AT THE PARLOR: The Music Of The Battery
