New On DVD: Zombie Girl: The Movie (2010)
Zombie Girl: The Movie, a documentary about the filmmaking efforts of a 12-year old girl who loves zombies, has just been released on DVD today. Directed by Aaron Marshall, Erik Mauck and Justin Johnson, Zombie Girl: The Movie profiles Emily Hagins as she makes her first feature length film - Pathogen.
With the help of her mother as agent, crew, and biggest fan, Emily launches an epic adventure in genre filmmaking, battling everything from budget shortfalls to self-doubt, all while coming of age as a teenager.
Emily has the vision and her mom has the driver’s license. Together, their journey is an enlightening look at a growing world of young moviemakers and the bloodiest mother/daughter story you’ve ever seen. - ZombieGirlTheMovie.com
Hagins began writing her feature in 2004 and had it completed by 2006, when it premiered at the Alamo Drafthouse.
Pathogen, in its entirety, is included as a bonus feature on the DVD.
