Peter Jackson step aside

Christchurch video production company Gorilla Pictures is making a zombie film “better than most indie stuff cranked out on the cheap” in the US, according to horror film aficionados Dread Central. Director Logan McMillan’s film Last of the Living has just been picked up by LA-based Quantum Releasing for worldwide distribution later this year. Central says: “For a low budgeter, it sure as hell looks like a damn professional film.” Last of the Living is about three boys making their way through a post-zombie apocalypse world, asked to become heroes by a girl who might know of a cure for the infection. Gorilla Pictures also produce music videos, promos and short films.
