‘Two women. A million undead. One chance to survive.’
Paradise Z aka Dead Earth and Two of Us is a 2020 Thai horror feature film about a post-apocalypse world in which two women must live in silence or face being eaten by the undead.
Directed by Wych Kaosayananda (Maxx; 2 Guns: Zero Tolerance) from a screenplay written by Steve Poirier. The movie tells a parallel story to Kaosayananda’s The Driver, focusing on events that happen within the same post-apocalyptic world, with characters and locations intersecting between both films.
In a post-apocalyptic world, two young women cling to life in an abandoned resort. They must survive in silence, in mortal fear of attracting the hordes of undead that roam the Earth.
When their compound runs out of fuel, they are forced into the countryside to find gas, resulting in a nightmarish encounter with survivors.
However, that is nothing compared to the horrors that await them back at home, leading to a deadly confrontation with the evil that surrounds them…
Dead Earth was released in North America by Lionsgate Home Entertainment on DVD, Digital and On Demand on January 28th 2020.
“The excitement and action are all constrained to the second half and there are a few compelling and truly suspenseful moments that leave you wondering just which of the two will survive. To that effect, Dead Earth is a feasibly watchable, decent, intriguing minimalist thriller ancillary to its successors… I’m being plural there on purpose.” Film Combat Syndicate
