It’s that time of the year when some very fun movies will be coming to the big screen and straight to DVD. One of my favorites is Abraham Lincoln Vs. Zombies. It’s a movie set in the 1800′s during the Civil War. Union and Confederate soldiers are fighting more than just each other for the future of the country in this movie. They’re fighting zombies under the guidance of the 16th President of the United States. One of the key characters in the movie is Pat Garrett. He’s brilliantly played by Atlanta based actor Christopher Marrone (Twitter:

The Insite: What can sci-fi and zombie fans expect in Abraham Lincoln versus Zombies?
C Marrone: Sci-fi and Zombie fans can expect a nice “alternate history” storyline, with an amazing ending and a heck of a lot of Zombies. There are a lot of zombies in this film, that not many of the viewers will get to see and so many wonderful people came out to portray these zombies which was amazing to see. There is a bit of stretch to include certain historical characters into the storyline but it works out well if the viewer can stretch their imagination…which I think should be possible with a ZOMBIE movie haha.
The Insite: How will you distinguish your production from the soon to be released Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter?
C Marrone: I think the initial reviews and overall acceptance to our film, Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies, speaks for itself. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is a Big Budget film and I am sure it will be a great film, the director at the helm of that movie, directed one of my favorite films: “Wanted.” With our cast and crew, we knew what we were up against and knew the challenge of a much lower budgeted film and we executed it well in my opinion. My hats are off to everyone in front of the camera and ESPECIALLY everyone behind the camera.
The Insite: What will be the big selling point of this film to movie lovers around the country?
The Insite: Would you describe making AL Vs. Zombies a lot of hard work or lots of fun?
The Insite: What is your next movie project?
The Insite: How did you catch the acting bug?
The Insite: When can Houston fans expect to see you in the Bayou City?
C Marrone: I have not been to Houston yet but I would love to go. I am currently looking at some flights right now so maybe sooner than you think…Bayou City Look Out!
