The cast for 'Zombie Undead' is largely made up from Leicestershire people
A zombie movie, shot entirely in Leicester, is due to be screened at the world's largest fantasy film festival.
Filmmakers of 'Zombie Undead' said they are pleased to introduce the feature at this year's Fantasporto in Portugal, which takes place until 5 March.
The event has previously hosted work from the Cohen brothers, Quentin Tarrinto and Peter Jackson.
The independent film, which premiered at Phoenix Square in January 2010, has also secured a distribution deal.
'Zombie Undead' was shot mainly around De Montfort University, but Leicester's Clock Tower and many other spots across the city and county feature prominently.
The vast majority of the cast and crew involved in the making of the budget horror flick also have local roots.
Director Rhys Davies said: "It is a very, very small budget for the look we got. It's way under £20,000, which is just miniscule with this kind of thing."
'Zombie Undead' is due to be released on DVD and for online download from 30 May 2011.
Rhys said he was expecting the film to be awarded an '18' certificate: "It is gory; it kind of hits all the bases for your horror fans, but its a very suspenseful film as well."
