Just ahead of this Friday’s premiere of Steve Niles’ Remains – Chiller has unleashed zombies with the debut of a special online-only prequel called Remains: Road to Reno. The 11-minute webisode has been produced exclusively for Chillertv.com, and debuted online Friday, giving viewers a glimpse at the origins of Remains’ post-apocalyptic zombie invasion.
At the outset of the film, which premieres Friday, December 16th at 10 pm on Chiller, a radioactive blast transforms every tourist and local in Reno, Nevada into mindless, ravenous zombies. But before the action begins in Reno, somewhere just outside the city a lone mechanic (Morgan West) is learning first-hand what’s required to survive the undead.
With Remains: Road to Reno, Chiller’s official prequel to Steve Niles’s Remains, viewers can head back before the blast to watch as the virus descends upon an isolated gas station. Imagined by writer Steve Niles, this exclusive online event reveals the origins of Remains characters – both alive and undead – and pits zombie against zombie on the blood-soaked road to Reno. Remains: Road to Reno is written by John Doolan and directed by Colin Theys.
The Remains graphic novel by Steve Niles is available where books and comics are sold.
Based on the IDW Publishing graphic novel written by 30 Days of Night creator Steve Niles and illustrated by Kieron Dwyer, Remains is set in a chilling post-apocalyptic Reno, Nevada, and follows the survivors of a bizarre accident that reduced most of the world’s population to zombies. The group takes refuge in a vacant casino and fights a losing battle against the undead, who grow steadily stronger, smarter and more aggressive by the minute. The movie stars Grant Bowler (True Blood, Ugly Betty), Lance Reddick (Fringe, Lost, The Wire), Miko Hughes (Pet Sematary) and Tawny Cypress (Rescue Me, Heroes). Remains is written by John Doolan and directed by Colin Theys; Andrew Gernhard and Zach O’Brien will serve as producers for Synthetic Cinema International. Steve Niles and IDW CEO and Publisher Ted Adams will serve as executive producers. Remains premieres Friday, December 16 at 10pm.
