Trailer Park of the Living Dead
There’s no two ways about it–yesterday was fun. I drove up to a town called North East, Maryland (astonishingly located in northeast Maryland), to help out Joey Russo and Rio LaCour of Stormbringer Productions on the set of Trailer Park of the Living Dead, and I had an absolute blast in front of the camera as well as working behind the scenes.
Trailer Park of the Living Dead is a trashy gross-out horror comedy, best described as George Romero meets John Waters. Joey and Rio themselves star as a trailer-dwelling couple forced to contend both with a zombie apocalypse and their own dreadful neighbors, including the indescribable Babette Bombshell as Starleen the Trailer Park Queen. You’ll even get to see a zombie impaled by a pink flamingo.
We shot an evisceration sequence for the ages and a scene in which a horde of zombie children chase an ice cream truck, along with other footage. Not only do I appear as a zombie myself, but I also lent a hand with the makeup. After we wrapped, we watched the work edit, and I can assure you that this movie is sick, tasteless and funny. Joey and Rio are great people, I had loads of fun helping out with this project, and I can’t wait to work with them again soon.
