This low budget film isn’t necessarily a zombie film. It might end up being one at the end but more likely it’s about a woman whose losing her mind and believe that in death she is turning into one of the walking dead. It’s either an interesting look into madness with a zombie feel or an actual zombie film itself. I’m not sure yet but either way I want to know!
The first of several theatrical trailers for the upcoming feature film Pretty Dead.
The movie is composed entirely of found footage chronicling the last days of Regina Stevens, a young doctor who after killing and cannibalizing several men and being found unfit for trial in 2007, was diagnosed with Cotard’s Syndrome – a rare dissociative disorder also known as “Walking Corpse Disease.”
While being held in a Los Angeles County psychiatric ward she desperately tried to convince her psychiatric caregivers that she was not actually mentally ill, but was in fact slowly becoming a real life zombie.
Several weeks after being committed, she suddenly died from unknown causes and her body mysteriously disappeared.
The film is composed entirely of footage obtained from the evidentiary archives of the 2009 US District Court case against the California State Health department for the return of Regina’s body to her family.
