“Escaping The Dead” has been a 5 year long endeavor, shot in
Copenhagen and the surrounding cities, inspired by a series of
articles about the death drug “Krokodil” that was published about the same period of time when Ronald Poppo had his face eaten by a naked man hooked on bath salt in Miami.
It is the perfect zombie plot: a death drug that turns people into
zombies. A true film for the fans, made by true fans of the genre.
The film has its starting point in a typical day for the lead
character, David. David is the local marihuana pusher, but he is the
kind of dealer that smokes more than he sells. The country has been hit by a new death drug and when David and his partner in crime, Ahmir, is offered some exceptionally cheap cocaine
they see it as an opportunity to earn big money at a big techno
concert the following Friday. The cocaine turns out to have a terrible
side effect that creates a giant zombie outbreak that spreads across
the entire Copenhagen. In the film we follow David and his bloody
fight out of the city.
