Bloody film is
not a comedy
Flesh-eating horror for capital
CANBERRA'S bloodied and groaning
horde of the un-dead have returned to
their zombie lairs as filming for a new
movie wraps up this week.
Theatre of the Dead, which will be the
first production from the Canberra
Feature Film Coalition, is a horror tale

film, such as extra blood spatter, more

the faint hearted,'' Sanguineti said.
Sanguineti said it had been a very
positive experience for all involved in the
shooting of the film, with many people
new to the industry working with the
''There's been a lot of newbies to the
film industry and what they've learnt
