A sweet but insecure girl tries to make the most of her biggest romantic opportunity – if only she can fight off the undead closing in on her! … in the delirious NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEB. Directed by Kyle Rankin, winner of HBO’s Project Greenlight (Season 2), the “disarmingly sweet horror comedy”(Starburst) will charm its way onto Blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms from MPI Home Video on September 6, 2016.
After a girls’ night out, endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the most attractive guy in Portland, Maine. She’s thrilled, but can’t remember much about what actually got her there. Pretty boy Ryan, who’s engaged to be married, only knows her presence is a mistake and he ushers her quickly out the door – right into a full-scale zombie apocalypse!
Now, a walk of shame becomes a fight for survival as the mismatched pair must team up to survive. They make their way to Ryan’s rich dad’s mansion, hoping to lie low until the zombies disperse. But family fights may be just as dangerous and unsettling! Ultimately, Deb realizes that the only thing scarier than trusting someone with your life is trusting them with your heart.
 
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEB is “a crowd-pleaser in the mold of Shaun of the Dead” (Toronto After Dark). It stars Maria Thayer (Strangers With Candy, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Michael Cassidy (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Argo), Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, RoboCop) and Chris Marquette (The Girl Next Door, Fanboys). It was an Official Selection at FrightFest, Toronto After Dark and the Brussels Film Festival.
“Funny, smart and sweet, with a great character at its center, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEB is a romzomcom that we can heartily recommend,” wrote Jonathan Hatfull of SciFiNow. Joel Harley of Starburst called it “a romzomcom with real heart and feeling … proves that there’s some life in the old subgenre yet.” “The film has a secret weapon in the mad genius of Ray Wise, as Ryan’s father,” said Rob Hunter of Film School Rejects.
