ZOMBIE ELVES is a unique live action feature film from Dawn Fields, the award-winning writer/director of the short film Fragile Storm starring Lance Henriksen (watch below). Best described as “Gremlins meets Lord of The Rings on the North Pole“, the film is seeking development funds and offering some incredible perks for those who can help make it happen!
I am fascinated with Christmas and have often wondered what it would be like if the North Pole really existed and wasn’t the ‘candy cane’ and ‘sugar plum’ version we were spoon-fed as kids. I wanted to create elves that are edgier and more sophisticated than the ‘jolly’ elves we’ve seen in the past, and wanted to set it in a world that is realistic and utilitarian but with a sense of magic and whimsy.
But I also have a dark side and found it irresistibly delicious to have something really bad happen there. And thus, Zombie Elves was born.
Viktor, Timo’s evil cousin, is the head of the Technology Department. Unlike any other elf before him or since, Viktor’s heart turned cold and dark after he witnessed the abduction of his mother as a child. Viktor claims to also be in love with Mia, but in truth, he just doesn’t want anyone else to have her. Blinded by jealousy and rage Viktor sabotages the virtual reality headset that Timo is about to test.
Unfortunately Mia puts on the headset instead and, because female elves have special blood, she shakes and convulses before collapsing. Later that night, in the infirmary, her symptoms worsen and she becomes ‘patient zero zombie’. She goes on a killing spree she bites and ‘turns’ several more elves before eventually cornering Timo in the lab. But Timo sees a spark of compassion in her eyes and realizes he must find a way to save her, Santa and all of the North Pole from being devoured by flesh-eating monsters!
ZOMBIE ELVES will have the humor and family warmth of Gremlins, a dark origin story like Rare Exports and the fantasy adventure of Lord of the Rings. And much like Lord of the Rings we will be using full-sized actors and a process known as ‘forced perspective’ which was also used in films like Will Ferrell’s Elf and Fred Claus to show the size difference between the elves and humans, like our Santa and Mrs. Claus.
The Lord of the Rings
Because our elf characters are so unique in their own right, we have an exciting opportunity to create wholly original zombie creatures. I mean, who knows what happens to an elf who turns into a zombie?
