Over 200 hundred zombie fans descended on Leeds for the annual Zombie Film Festival on Sunday 11 May 2014 at the Cottage Road Cinema in Headingley, near Leeds. The film festival, now it its seventh year, raised £2035 for WSPA.

The film line-up included: Lifeforce, Poultrygeist, Stalled, World War Z, 5 short zombie films and The Battery, which has not yet been released in the UK.

Dominic Brunt, who plays vet Paddy Kirk, and Mark Charnock, who plays Chef Marlon Dingle, in the ITV1 soap Emmerdale gave a short introduction to each of the films and were available throughout the day to interact with the zombie fans.

Zombie Film Festival Fun

Many fans came dressed for the occasion although this wasn’t obligatory. WSPA Ambassador Dominic Brunt says, “This is the seventh year of our Zombie Film Fest, with more fans attending each year. We try to show a selection of films from around the world – some good, some bad and others downright ridiculous – which adds to the fun of the event. Anytime a green field or anything to do with farming appears on screen, we have loads of zombies singing the theme from Emmerdale; it’s a brilliant atmosphere.”
