This Halloween season is quickly becoming the Chip & Bernie season of film festivals, not only are we world premiering “Chip & Bernie’s Zomance” at the Idaho Horror Film Festival as the festival’s opening film but we are now showing at the Hot Springs International Horror Film Festival. This is a feature film that I wrote and directed starring Marc Robert and myself with Tim Conway co-starring.
“Chip and Bernie’s Zomance,” takes the viewer straight into the middle of a zombie apocalypse. With humans caught unaware and unprepared, the zombies overtake most major areas of civilization. With zombies now outnumbering humans, survival and retaliation are essential. To keep the remaining human population both connected to the outside world and educated on zombie killing techniques, a made-for-TV competition has been created. The competition rules are simple: Rule 1: Each team has 48 hours to kill as many zombies as possible. Rule 2: Don’t die.
“Chip and Bernie’s Zomance” focuses on one team in particular, exterminators Chip and Bernie. These two brother-in-laws are an odd pair but somehow the best of friends. Chip is an ideas man, always talking Bernie into one crazy scheme after another. Chip’s drive and humor stem from profound moments in his past and his unending love for Hawaiian shirts. Bernie always looks for the good side of Chip and is eager to put his trust in Chip’s often misguided plans. Their relationship is a constant balance of give and take, mixed in with lots of adventures.
HSHFF is an independent film festival conceived with the idea that “filmmakers know films” and that “talented filmmaking will inspire, amaze and educate”. We recognize and promote a variety of films in the “HORROR” “THRILLER” and “SCI-FI” genres.
We are honored to be in this festival and look forward to the screening later this October. To purchase tickets to the festival visit HSIHFF and enjoy yourself at another screening of “Chip & Bernie’s Zomance.”
