Balt Salt Zombies is simply a creative and chaotic caper from a pretty prolific artist coming into his own. –  Patrick Dolan, RUE MORGUE

Bath Salt Zombies is a new horror film directed and co-written by Dustin Wayde Mills (Puppet Monster Massacre, Zombie A-Hole, Ballad of Skinless Pete) and produced and co-written by Clint Weiler of Aggronautix. The movie sensationalizes the recent bath salt epidemic and the attacks surrounding them.

On March 9th at Forbidden Planet, starting at 7PM writer/producer Clint Weiler and members of the band World War IX will be on hand for signings. The band will be signing copies of their new EP “Off The Wagon” featuring the Bath Salt Zombies theme song. Guitar player Justin Melkmann will also be showcasing his newest comic book Ear Aches and Eye Sores #4, Melkmann’s Slap in the Face My Obsession with GG Allin has always been a big hit on Forbidden Planet’s indie rack when available.
Also, a VERY limited edition VHS of Bath Salt Zombies will be available at the signing. Collectors of this medium will no doubt want one.
At 8PM, singer Filthy Phil will be recording live in the store for his weekly podcastDispatches From The Underground so come on down for a chance to be on the show.
Later that night join the band in Brooklyn for a Midnight Screening of Bath Salt Zombies at The Spectacle Theater hosted by the fine folks at Horror Boobs. Spectacle Theater is located at 124 S.3rd Street (near Bedford Ave) Williamsburg, admission is 5 dollars.
“Although the film is somewhat of a black comedy, I wanted to portray the real power of drugs in a horror story… Dustin was able to pull it off with ease,” said Weiler who wrote the treatment for the film and worked on the basic characterization.

“It’s off the wall comic book insanity with blood, gore, nudity, martial arts, gunfights, and a mutant jack-chi,” said Mills. “You should check your brain at the door and prepare to have your face melted off.”

SYNOPSIS:

Present day, United States… The bath salts epidemic facing the southern and mid-western US has been stifled by an unprecedented government crackdown. Head shops have been raided and shut down, component imports from the UK, India and China have been completely stopped, and aggressive penalties for users have been instated. This has led to a tremendous amount of surplus stock hidden by black market dealers, and a migration of those dealers (and in turn, users) to the northeast and other areas. In New York City, potent strands have surfaced and have attracted the most devoted bath salt junkies. In an attempt to outsell said strands, a young aspiring chemist has developed and even stronger batch… but something has gone horribly wrong. The new ultra potent bath salt batch has revealed a major side effect… It turns users into violent flesh seeking “zombies.” When the zombies are high on balt salts, they are completely unaware of their actions and they seem to float in and out of consciousness. When they kill / eat people, they are unaware of what has happened when they come down off the drug. The drug is also more addictive than other forms, and users feel the need to stay constantly high due to the fact they become incredibly feeble when sober. They come down HARD.

FACTS ABOUT THE BATH SALT EPIDEMIC:

Traditional “bath salts” consist of a combination of amphetamine-like chemicals, mainly mephedrone, MDPV and methylone. Users of the drug have reported feeling incredibly hot, which is why many get naked (in this case, it gives us cause for female nudity). They also develop superhuman strength (it can take five or six men to restrain them) and become so manic and delusional that the term “excited delirium” is being used by the medical community to describe their mental state. The shocking wave of attacks has sparked fears of a real-life zombie outbreak in the south. This led to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention releasing a statement saying it is not aware of any virus that can cause zombie-like behavior. A spokesman said: “MDPV is an illegal and harmful drug and stiff penalties are in place for people who possess or supply it. Drugs ruin lives which is why we are taking tough action against dealers and criminal gangs and helping people to free themselves from the cycle of dependency.”

STARRING: Brandon Salkil, Josh Eal, Ethan Holey, Dave Parker, Jackie McKown, and more.
