It was way back in August of 2014 when we heard filming had begun on a zombie project called GENERATION Z. Two and a half years and a title change to THE REZORT later, we're now only days away from the film's North American VOD release.

Directed by Steve Barker from a screenplay by Paul Gerstenberger, THE REZORT is described as "JURASSIC WORLD meets The Walking Dead" and draws inspiration from two of author/filmmaker Michael Crichton's most popular stories – JURASSIC PARK and WESTWORLD. The film is set

after an almost-apocalyptic zombie outbreak. Humans have won the war and are exploring how humanity can recover after such a huge percentage of the population has been wiped out. Humankind finally has the upper hand, but Melanie, who lost her entire family, is still deeply traumatised. In a bid to overcome the demons of her past, she goes on a zombie safari retreat. It is the ultimate in therapeutic revenge.

The ReZort is actually a highly controlled and monitored environment, with a maze of concealed security cameras, restraints and barriers. The eyes and ears of trained security personnel are on the guests 24/7, ensuring a safe shooting distance between the living and the undead. That is until the resort’s security system is hacked and a computer virus crashes it, potentially unleashing thousands of bloodthirsty zombies back into the wild.

Dougray Scott (who also encountered zombies on Fear the Walking Dead), Jessica De Gouw, Martin McCann , Elen Rhys, Claire Goose, and Jassa Ahluwalia star.

If you, like me, have been looking forward to seeing THE REZORT for a while now, you'll probably be glad to know that Content Media will be releasing the film on all digital platforms in North America next Tuesday, January 17th.

If you're not sold on it just yet, check out the trailer below and see if that does the trick.
