About The Project
ZOMBIE CATS FROM MARS 2 takes place in 1957 and is centered around the Peterson family, their eccentric neighbor Agnes, physicist Grandpaw Bill, and a group of Soviet cosmonauts working under the control of the feline commander Cosmo. With Cosmo at the controls, a newly-launched satellite (Sputnik) beams a signal alerting Earth cats to attack. Agnes falls victim, and the Peterson family assume she’s been attacked by a large animal. When her bandages are removed, she’s revealed to have become a zombie and attacks matriarch Diane. As the Petersons’ world begins to collapse, it is up to young Armand Peterson and family friend Howie to go back in time to prevent the catastrophe that is unfolding.
This round of funding will be used to film several key scenes - primarily the Soviet Space Lab scenes.
ZCFM2 is the prequel to the 2015 film Zombie Cats from Mars. The original took place in 2015, and was focused on three households, each facing their own problems, who become the victims of a Zombie Cat invasion. The central character, Billy, played the film's hero. He aimed to save his family, and the neighborhood, from the Zombie Cats.
ZOMBIE CATS FROM MARS 2 takes place in the past, and features Billy's dad as a youngster as well as his great grandfather Bill Sr.
The new film will have many differences from the original:
1. Higher production value - much more care and expense will be made to create rich and detailed background scenery, costumes, props, and set pieces.
2. More cats. Gotta have more cats.
3. More zombies. Many more zombies.
4. More horror - while the original may be considered more of a horror/comedy, Zombie Cats from Mars 2 is darker, scarier, and bloodier.
5. Better story - ZCFM2 features dynamic characters with more complex interactions, spontaneity and arcs.
6. Better effects - don't get me started on the special effects of the original, Zombie Cats from Mars 2 will employ far superior practical and digital effects and makeup.
7. Better acting - believe it or not, we didn't even audition actors for the original. This time around, we're paying more and are seeking the best cast possible.
It's hard to make a Zombie Cats movie without some cat actors. We've teamed up once again with Furry Friends of Washington, a no-kill, non profit cat rescue and adoption organization. We had the pleasure of working with them in the original Zombie Cats film, and we're thrilled that all cat actors used in that film were adopted (some by members of our crew)! We're excited to be working with them again. We believe that every furry friend deserves a loving home - even if they are zombie cats.
We're excited to embark on a new adventure, help more cats, and provide more scary thrills. We invite you on the journey with us. The cats will appreciate it.
