‘War has just evolved’
Redcon-1 is a 2018 British science fiction action horror feature film produced and directed by Chee Keong Cheung from a screenplay co-written with Steve Horvath and Mark Strange. The Apocalypse Pictures production stars Akira Koieyama, Bentley Kalu, Katarina Leigh Waters and Oris Erheuro.
After a zombie apocalypse spreads from a London prison, the UK is “brought to its knees”. The spread of the virus is temporarily contained but, without a cure, it’s only a matter of time before it breaks its boundaries and the biggest problem of all… any zombies with combat skills are now enhanced.
With the South East of England quarantined from the rest of the world using fortified borders, intelligence finds that the scientist responsible for the outbreak is alive and well in London.
With his recovery being the only hope of a cure, a squad of eight Special Forces soldiers is sent on a suicide mission to the city, now ruled by the undead, with a single task: get him out alive within 72 hours by any means necessary. What emerges is an unlikely pairing on a course to save humanity against ever-rising odds…
Redcon-1 will be contaminating British cinemas from 28th September 2018, courtesy of 101 Films and Intense Distribution. The film’s premiere will be at the Raindance Film Festival on 27th.
