The Final Night and Day was filmed in Western New York in the summer of 2010. The plot follows a group of corrections officers and escaped convicts fighting to survive during a zombie epidemic. For the film’s biggest sequence, Steigert and Andrews shut down the main street of Angola, New York and imported wrecked cars and 500 zombie extras for the ultimate “zombie walk.”
“The big Zombie Day in Angola was a real undertaking,”
The Final Night and Day features numerous actors from the Buffalo area film community, including Richard Satterwhite (the CBS TV series Three Rivers), Tim Dugan (The Perfect House), and Michael O’Hear (House of Horrors: the Movie). Andrews, who had a key role in Gore, appears here as well. She and Steigert intend to screen the film on the festival circuit this fall.
Upcoming DefTone productions include an untitled zombie film written and directed by Mark Mendola, which Steigert is currently editing; the comedy Losing It, written, starring, and co-directed by Julian Dickman; Black Guy on a Rampage, starring Alexander Sloan McBryde (Fable: Teeth of Beasts); and Steigert’s science fiction project Ombis, now in development, with some shooting planned for later this summer and principal photography scheduled for next year.
