Stefano, a novelist, discovers the writings of a scientist named Zeder still legible in the ream of an old typewriter. He slowly becomes obsessed with the details of his research at the mention of something known as the ‘K-zone’, a specific area of land that has the power to return the dead to life.

Marketed in the US as REVENGE OF THE DEAD, ZEDER is a heady slow-burn freakout, grossly underseen given the number of things that have lifted from it (looking at you, Pet Semetary). Don’t expect your average schlocky zombie thriller, but a more unique blend of and riff on sci-fi zombie-mystery-and-giallo tropes.
