Zombies descend on Governers Island in NY

9 06 2009

New York Entertainment Magazine tells the story of zombies descending on Governers Island in NY, for the filming of a new movie entitled “Isle of the Dead” (not to be confused with the 1945 Boris Karloff movie of the same name).

The movie, produced by artistic houses “Creative Time” and “The Bruce High Quality Foundation“, takes a look at a harsh reality by drawing references to our hard financial times.

Isle of the Dead has a pretty simple plot line — the credit crisis kills the art world and its players, who reemerge as zombies in an alternative movement inspired only by art from the past. The film begins with sweeping shots of dead bodies splayed out in front of the Met, Guggenheim, and Whitney museums, plus a strip of galleries in Chelsea, and ends with a zombie uprising on Governors Island, where the zombies congregate for a sing-along to the Bryan Adams classic, “Summer of ’69.”

I was all about it, until I heard that the zombies were signing to Bryan Adams.  Still, may be worth a gander…
