Dance of the Dead was my #1 Top Pick from this year’s SXSW Film Festival. We attended the World Premiere on March 9 and have been covering the progress of the film ever since. I’ve described Dance of the Dead as a groundbreaking combination of high school mayhem and zombies — think John Hughes meets John Carpenter meets George Romero.
Bleiberg Entertainment, whose Ehud Bleiberg produced the film along with writer/director Gregg Bishop through Compound B, brought the film to the Marche du Film (Cannes Film Market) in hopes of getting distribution. It didn’t take long.
