STRAIN: Theatrical Trailer (Award-Winning Short Film)

Saturday, March 30th, 2019 STRAIN

From award-winning film director Reynier Molenaar (Replay/2007), comes an eerie look at the last days of mankind. STRAIN follows two survivors of the zombie apocalypse who must travel across ground zero — an abandoned Los Angeles — to deliver important biological samples.

BRIDE is a battle-weary and jaded warrior who has lost everyone and given up on people. CHRIS is a struggling optimist who is desperate for anyone he could call a friend.

When the mismatched pair discover they are being hunted, they must join forces to save their lives — and their humanity.
