Now available on Amazon

Orders are coming in across the USA for our film. Not the kind of numbers that studio executives would be excited about but for us - it's great. Reviews across the board have been positive. Next step is video on demand and television. Sent a screener to my foreign sales representative Claude and am hopeful that a European conquest will be next.

The Defled - Press & Promo Update

Detailed below please find information on our film. The web has been abuzz what with the most recent Amazon release.

The Defiled

In a post apocalyptic world, science and technology have backfired leaving unfathomable destruction and a permanently diseased planet in its wake. A virus is mutating the human race turning innocent survivors into mindless cannibals. In a savage future world devoid of hope, a man infected with the deadly viral disease must cope with the burden of a new born son, ensuring his survival. Though he is infected, he does not allow his growing desire for human flesh to overcome his responsibility to the newborn. Along the road, traveling from town to town, he saves an unaffected woman from a certain death by facing down her perpetrators. Ultimately she joins him on his odyssey, a journey through hell on earth in search of a safe haven in which they can perhaps start a life together, both becoming committed to doing whatever it takes to make sure the child survives. Reminiscent of the work of Lynch, Maddin and Tarkovsky, The Defiled is a black and white epic of unparalleled artistry examining life, death and the ultimate sacrifice of love. Not since Carnival of Souls and Night of the Living Dead has a film captured the surreal outer dimensions of the human condition.

5 STAR REVIEWS ON AMAZON!
http://www.amazon.com/Defiled-Brian-Shaw/product-reviews/B004GB5BVW

"The most epic black and white film since Night of the Living Dead" - OH Krill, author of Montauk Babies, the many lives of Al Leedskalnin

"Beautiful and Haunting, Sick and Perverted" - Sneak Preview Audience

"Gorgeously grotesque! Be wary of what you consume..." "Enough to wake the dead. The Defiled is a black and white nightmare of devilishly entertaining
proportions. Shockingly fun." - Ron Falzone - Cinema Slapdown

THE DEFILED may be the most nihilistic zombie film I've seen since NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, with beautiful cinematography that recalls both that
film and CARNIVAL OF SOULS. Julian Grant has crafted a cinematic meditation on family that should tear the family values crowd to pieces.- Greg Lamberson, SLIME CITY MASSACRE

"The Defiled is a wonderful combination of intellectual horror and visceral shock." - Zoran Samardzija
