‘The end is just the beginning’

The Clearing is a 2020 American feature film about a father (Liam MacIntyre) and daughter who go camping just as a zombie apocalypse occurs.

Written and directed by David Matalon (short: Bedtime Stories), the movie stars Liam McIntyre (Justice League Dark: Apokolips War; Star Wars Resistance TV series), Aundrea Smith, Steven Swadling and Sydelle Noel.


“Save for some glaringly obvious digital blood and fire FX, The Clearing is mostly shot and edited well. Even with a single location and mainly one actor, the low budget usually stays concealed so the movie doesn’t look like a typical DIY effort shot on the cheap in a public park. That’s about the only compliment that can be mustered, however.” Culture Crypt


The Clearing is available to view on Crackle, the US-based streaming platform from June 4th 2020.
