“Dead Squad”: Zombiefest Featuring Giant Zombie King and Queen Films in Bali

Dead Squad

Exotic Balinese jungle locations, a seven-foot-tall zombie king, and a six-foot-eight zombie queen – What more could you want in an action/zombie/comedy/adventure film? The upcoming zombie film  Dead Squad has been shooting in Bali this month. Its two  biggest (or should we say  tallest?) stars are seven footer  Conan Stevens (Game of Thrones (2011)) and six-foot-eight Erika Evans (aka Amazon Eve,  American Horror Story: Freak Show (2014)) as the mysterious Z-13 and Zombie Queen, respectively.

It sounds like it will be a lot of fun. They are expected to wrap principal photography just this week. No further word on when we can expect a release. Looks like we’ll have to keep an eye out for this one.

Principle photography of the camp horror film Dead Squad  has commenced in the Balinese jungle.   Towering Aussie giant Conan Stevens, known for Game of Thrones,  is on location to play the mysterious character called ‘Z-13.’   He is joined by the world’s tallest model Erika Ervin, aka Amazon Eve, from American Horror Story: Freak Show  in the role of a ‘Zombie Queen.’

First time helmer Dominik Hauser, who co-wrote the script, describes the roles of the towering stars as being “The King and Queen of a weird Dantean underworld.   We’re doing things with them you haven’t seen before.”

Stevens and Ervin are supported by a wide array of bizarre creatures.

Bigger ever than the stars are the giant stage sets constructed at Movie Studio Bali making the hellish underworld a reality.

Hauser promises the film will be an epic zombie splatterfest.

Orlando Bassi of Movie Studio Bali, and Christopher Hatton, producer and director of Battle of the Damned  are producing.

Dead Squad  is a campy, splatter-filled, horror adventure that harkens back to classic films of the early 80s.   It concerns a group of young people who become lost in the jungle during a river rafting trip and stumble upon a long lost ruin that is home to a host of mysterious monsters.
