New On Blu: Zombie Double Feature (Dead Season / State of Emergency)

New this week from Image Entertainment is a Zombie Double Feature disc that includes Dead Season and State of Emergency.

Dead Season was directed by Adam Deyoe, and stars Scott Peat, Marissa Merrill, James C. Burns, and Corsica Wilson.

"When a worldwide viral outbreak leads to a plague of zombies scouring the earth for the living, two survivors flee the chaos of America to a remote island, hoping for a chance to start a new life. What they find is unrelenting horror. Beyond the hordes of the flesh-hungry undead, the other people already on the island force the pair into a fight-or-die battle amongst themselves. Armed only with crude weapons, they must descend to savagery and cutthroat tactics just to make it through each day. Packed with cutting-edge action and outrageous gore, DEAD SEASON is a riveting new spin on the zombie genre!"

State of Emergency was directed by Turner Clay, and stars Jay Hayden, Tori White, Scott Lilly, and Kathryn Todd Norman.

"After an explosion unleashes the contents of a military bio-weapons plant, the unsuspecting populace is transformed into a roaming army of flesh-eating zombies. Trapped in the quarantine zone, Jim (Jay Hayden, A Warrior's Heart) finds himself cut off, confused and fighting for his own survival. Contacted by a small band of others unaffected by the toxins, Jim sets out to reach their besieged warehouse. Becoming the group's de-facto leader, he struggles to keep order as they hunker down, fortify their stronghold and arm themselves against the attacking mutants. Fragmentary radio reports from outside hint at a last-ditch government rescue plan. But can the survivors hold out until help arrives… or will they succumb to the living hell of an undead apocalypse?"

Zombie Double Feature (Dead Season / State of Emergency) is available now on Blu-ray.
