Based on the IDW Publishing graphic novel written by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) 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.
And don't miss Chiller's exclusive online prequel REMAINS: ROAD TO RENO, available now only on ChillerTV.com!
At the outset of Chiller’s adaptation of Steve Nile’s Remains, a radioactive blast transforms every tourist and low-rent local in Reno, Nevada into mindless, ravenous zombies. But as a group of mis-matched survivors gathers to escape the flesh-eating horde, somewhere just outside the city, a lone mechanic is learning first-hand what’s required to survive the undead. What dies in Reno remains in Reno, but with Chiller’s official prequel to Steve Niles’s Remains, viewers can head outside the walls and 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.
