OFFICIAL PAGE FOR APRIL MULLEN & TIM DOIRON'S MOVIE WORLD

“Dead before Dawn 3D” interview for Shockya

Dead Before Dawn 3D marks the first Canadian picture to be filmed entirely in 3D. Starring Devon Bostwick and Christopher Llyod, the horror-comedy centers on a group of college students who unleash a curse that transforms people into “zemons”, a deadly combination of zombie and demon.

Outside of wanting to do a genre picture, what spawned the idea for this movie?

TD: Once we knew we were shooting in 3D, we started brainstorming and thinking about the stories we wanted to tell. We had an idea from a while back that we actually thought was going to be a thriller at first, which was this idea of people killing themselves for no apparent reason. It was pretty morbid, and I thought I don’t necessarily want to approach that subject in that vein. But then when we got into this world and started thinking about making a possible zombie film, we thought ‘wouldn’t it be crazy if we made a classic style zombie film that started out with a bunch of clueless college kids.’ But then we took it to the next level, and created their own curse which involves people they make eye-contact with that turn into this zombie-demon hybrid. And we just thought that would be a lot fun, and it would be very complimentary to shoot for a 3D film.

AM: We were also really excited about working with a new hybrid of a monster. We thought it would be really intriguing to if this was a zombie that actually had a brain, it had demon skills behind it so it could run really quickly and it could move fast and attack at will.

It’s interesting to have a zombie that can actually move and think. Who coined the phrase zemon?

TD: We thought of that together. We thought of dombie, but that was awful. So there’s a play on words there that you can have fun with and it just sort of rolls off the tongue.

AM: Half-zombie, half-demon, all zemon. Just works so well.
