Night of the Living Deb

Preceded by the short film Soccer Moms in Peril

After the endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the handsome Ryan, neither can recall the events of the night before. Following her awkward exit, they discover that most of the town has contracted a zombie virus, forcing them back into each other’s arms. A walk of shame becomes a fight for survival. Their mission is to find Ryan’s ex-girlfriend, paranoid father, and apocalypse-survivalist brother and escape town without killing each other in the process. Discussion with director Kyle Rankin, actor Maria Thayer, director of photography Tom Ackerman, and moderator Jack Steinberg
