The Zombinator
A fashion blogger documentary turns into a zombie horror nightmare when college students come face to face with the undead in Youngstown, Ohio. Their only hope of survival is a former soldier turned zombie killer trying to protect them from 'The Colonel,' a mercenary working for an evil corporation who developed the serum that causes zombie-ism.
