The film focuses on 15 year old Emma, a teenage girl like any other. However, things change for her when she starts to experience strange fits. When doctors can’t figure out why these events are happening, the family begins to look at alternative ideas. Before you can say “demonic possession”, dark things are afoot and Emma is fighting for her very soul.
Like Machete, Jason Eisner’s film began life as a faux trailer for Tarantino and Rodriguez’s Grindhouse. It was a fan-made piece that won a contest and was included with some theatrical showings of the film, but not all of them — which explains why you might not have seen it.

The story isn’t groundbreakingly original — an epidemic has left mankind in shambles and the walking dead are everywhere. Three men, two zombie hunters and a scientist named Gyno, have holed up in a fortress while they hunt not only the undead but for clues as to what happened to bring about this catastrophe.
