Raven Banner Entertainment announced that it has secured worldwide sales rights on SXSW Midnighters entry Yummy. Directed by Lars Damoiseaux, the film is the country’s first ever zombie action movie. The market premiere is set for Berlin. Kobe Van Steenberghe and Hendrik Verthé produced for A Team Productions, the company behind such features as Adil and Bilall’s Gangsta and Sven Huybrechts’ U-235.
Scripted by Eveline Hagenbeek and the film’s director Lars Damoiseaux, Yummy is an orgy of blood, violence and fun. The film follows the adventures of a young couple, accompanied by the girl’s mother, travelling to a shabby hospital resort that specialises in plastic surgery. Once there, the boyfriend stumbles upon a young woman, gagged and strapped to an operating table; she is the result of an experimental rejuvenation treatment. He frees her, but does not realise he just caused the outbreak of a virus that will change doctors, patients and his mother-in-law into bloodthirsty zombies…
Yummy, which was presented as part of the Works-in-Progress at last year’s CONNEXT, is to receive its world premiere in the Midnighters programme at SXSW in Austin.
