Official Trailer for Indie Post-Apocalyptic Thriller 'After the Pandemic'
"I won't put my life at risk for anyone else. Even you." Uncork'd Ent. has revealed an official trailer for an indie action thriller titled After the Pandemic, which is clearly capitalizing on the pandemic to sell itself as another post-apocalyptic survival film. The film is set in a near-future scenario in which the death rate for a new virus isn't 1%, but somewhere around 98%. Most of Earth's population has been wiped out. Only the immune have endured as scavengers. Ellie leaves her neighborhood and stumbles across a new city where she meets Quinn, someone who has taken a different approach to the new world. The film stars Eve James, Kannon Smith, Juniper Preacher, Derek Sneddon, Alec McCormick, Gu Sewen, Virginia Fivas, and Leslie Ldmaw. This looks like some super low budget, generic junk and it's getting a direct-to-DVD release which should tell you everything you need to know about why this probably won't be worth a watch.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Richard Lowry's After the Pandemic, direct from YouTube:
A dark sci-fi thriller set around the Covid-19 pandemic, the film is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a global airborne pandemic has wiped out 90% of the Earth's population and only the young and immune have endured as scavengers. For Ellie and Quinn, the daily challenges to stay alive are compounded when they become hunted by the merciless Stalkers. Their perilous journey culminates with a sacrifice, death, and redemption. After the Pandemic is directed by indie filmmaker Richard Lowry, of many other films including Noises, Jessica: A Ghost Story, The Looking Glass, Don't Feed the Animals, Rapture, Dominion, President Evil, and Savage Creatures previously. Produced by Francesca Zappitelli. Uncork'd will release Lowry's After the Pandemic direct-to-DVD / VOD starting March 1st, 2022 coming soon. Look any good?
