Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.16.16] post apocalyptic horror thriller



Drag is a something of a legendary post-apocalyptic film. Directed by Mark Pavia way back in the pre-internet land of 1993, the 16 mm zombie short was championed by the master of horror himself, Stephen King, after Pavia sent him a copy in the mail.

When King saw it he was so impressed that he brought Pavia to write and direct an adaptation of The Night Flier, now something of vampire cult classic that premiered on HBO.

Shot in and around Pavia's home town of Lockport, Illinois, Drag was also an early effort by Academy Award winning DP Mauro Fiore (AVATAR)


Synopsis:
The world is dead. A lone woman, Victoria, struggles valiantly to stay alive on this desolate planet once known as Earth. But Victoria is not alone here. She shares her horrifying new world with beings of a different kind... the living dead, ferocious beasts hungrily searching for human flesh. With a sawed-off shotgun strapped to her back, Victoria drags a dead body through this horrifying new world in a desperate attempt to hold onto her humanity... to hold on to her past.


Most recently, Pavia directed Fender Bender which is notable as being Scream Factory's first foray into film production.
