  • Production

    Director George Bonilla was inspired to make a zombie film after moving to Kentucky and finding a supportive independent film community there. Bonilla believed that zombies created from a defective drug would allow for a wide variety of effects on people, and allowed him to write in both feral and intelligent zombies. The cast and crew were mainly made up of people with no experience in filmmaking. Scenes were shot at the Bluegrass Aspendale housing project in Lexington, Kentucky. Bonilla's wife Tammy is the executive producer.

    Release

    Zombie Planet was distributed by J. R. Bookwalter's Tempe Entertainment. It was released on DVD on October 19, 2004.

    Reception

    Peter Dendle called the film "epically awful" and embarrassing for Lexington natives. David Johnson of DVD Verdict said that the film is better than most Z movies, but its length leads to too much filler. Bill Gibron of DVD Talk rated the film 3/5 stars and said that "there are kernels of creativity and outright cleverness in this big, sloppy ersatz-spectacle."
