Synopsis

Death Walks Film Review Death Walks 2016 HNN

In an East London shopping centre, a group of people are warned by a strange Italian woman (Francesca Ciardi) that they are all going to die. Her warnings prove to be all too real, as the shopping center is then attacked by zombies fueled by an evil supernatural power. The 25 people remaining in the shopping centre must band together to survive the night. This is made more difficult by the rising tensions as well as due to the fact that the surrounding town is oblivious of their torment due to a street party.

    Hawken began work on Death Walks in the summer of 2013. Filming took place in Romford, London during 2013 and included multiple extras, many of which were volunteers from the surrounding community. Hawken used the town's Mercury Mall shopping center, who donated the use of their space, and was able to complete the film through crowdsourcing techniques. Other supporters either loaned Hawken their supplies for free or donated them. Hawken initially planned for the filming to take place over a 24-hour period, but instead took place over a four-month period. During this time the cast listing swelled from 300 extras to just under 1,000.
