The Red Resurrection

Death. Life. Resurrection.

In a world ravaged by a viral infection that turns its victims into cannibalistic monsters, Abby (Kirstie Piper) awakens afraid and alone to find herself "Resurrected" from the living death brought on by this new black plague.
Dave (Jacob Reinhard) and Jon (Daniel Cutteridge), the two travelers who cured her from this deadly disease the night before, begin to lead Abby on a journey through the pieces of her shattered life to overcome her memories as a mindless flesh eater, as well as to their home, Safe Haven.
Now, with the help of those who cured her, Abby must learn to navigate through the depths of her fractured psyche and a world full of monsters, some much worse than the plague could ever create.

Director Biography - Matt Long

Passion: the driving force behind great things.
Matt channels his passion into his family, his faith, and his filmmaking. He is a student of leadership, the art of filmmaking and the Scriptures. He strives to be the best he can be in every area of his life.
Born and raised in Kentucky, Matt’s childhood was shaped by the cartoons, comics and movies of the 80’s. These influences fed and developed the creativity that now fuels his edgy, outside-the-box filmmaking.
As an independent filmmaker for over 14 years, Matt has had the opportunity to build a versatile team of talented and dedicated people, develop his and their skills through each fast-paced project and grow in their knowledge and arsenal of filmmaking tools. With little to no budget, he and his crew have made many short films, children’s video series and won multiple awards in the 48 Hour Film Project including Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, Best Directing and even Best Film. This big win took them to Hollywood for the international competition where their film “TimmyVision” screened at the TCL Chinese Theater. Following this path of success led Matt and his crew in 2015 to start the arduous three year journey of making their first feature film, a faith-based zombie drama/thriller, The Red Resurrection.
Matt believes all media has a message. “We should know what we’re wanting to say before we say it. Knowing where we’re going brings greater clarity to the direction of a story and gives the audience a better chance to understand the core of our narrative. Media without a resolute message is pointless.” With allegory as his weapon of choice, Matt shares the truths he believes his audience needs to hear, whether through drama, comedy, sci fi, or even horror. His greatest desire is for people to walk away from his films, not only entertained, but seeing and understanding life from a perspective they never have before.
