 He’s back! Yes, that’s right New Jersey actor, writer and filmmaker Sam Platizky, is back on the big screen in a new feature length film entitled, “Red Scare.” Why, just the name of his new film, will have many heading for cover! So, moviegoers beware!

Many of you might remember Platizky from his last film, entitled, “Blaming George Romero”, a film that tells the story of four horror film fanatic friends, unhappy with their lives, that think that there’s been a zombie apocalypse and jump at the chance to try to survive.  The film, “Blaming George Romero” was inspired by the works of George Romero a film director and screenwriter, best known for his gruesome horror films. Although, it may seem that Platizky’s new film, “Red Scare” might be just another zombie movie, truth be told that this one is filled with great dialogue and comedic persona. “Red Scare is bound to attract zombie lovers everywhere! 

Platizky’s “Red Scare” takes place during the 1950’s in the midst of the cold war.  The story line is based on a Soviet plot which brings the living dead to the shores of America! Only the brave patriotic hero, Rex Steel can stop the evil soviet menace alongside a teen rebel, a reporter, and a frightened teenage girl.

 Platizky wrote, produced and acted in his film ‘Red Scare”, his character Rex Steel is a tough but very funny American soldier who battles and evil soviet menace. In his script Platizky brings to life “Red Scare” in Mel Brooks style.  He explains, “Mel Brooks has to be one of the funniest filmmakers of all time. When I wrote “Red Scare”, I wanted to bring back the zombie aspect but with a sense of humor.”

 When viewing the theatrical trailer one can sense exactly what Platizky is trying to bring to the big screen. Filmed in black and white it is a compilation of old-time slapstick with dawn of the dead zombies. It seems that with this film Platizky has managed to bring to life interesting elements such as “horror and humor.”

 The film stars Sam Platizky as Rex Steel, Christina Garced (Veronica Valencourt), Megan Bussiere (Sasha Smith), Robert Lise (Vlad Sinisterski), Dan Gregory (Tony Antonio Appleucio), Loarina Gonzalez (Becky Sue Sorano), Aaron Visco (Pieter), Mitchell Vargas( Miles McShaunnessey), Isaac Platizky (“Happy” Charlie Steel) Christopher Lucas and a whole list of additional talented actors! Directed by William Dautrick, “Red Scare” is sure to have you running and laughing!”
