Last week we interviewed indie horror actor Robert Nolan and he told us about director Ryan M. Andrews and some of the work he has done with him, including a short entitled My Old Man and Sick, a feature film in which he stars.
Sick is an independent zombie film set two years after the ‘infection’ spread. Billions of people have died and governments have collapsed leaving the human race on the brink of extinction. Dr Leigh Rozetta (Christina Anne Aceto) is a scientist who has been living underground in a secret government facility since the outbreak and, after consistently failing to find a cure, she sneaks away to return to her parent’s house. On the journey back home she meets two militant survivalists who have just escaped from a group of zombies. With the sun setting and darkness fast approaching, the trio seeks sanctuary in Leigh’s parental home, but with the infected surrounding the house, they will be lucky to make it through until morning.
Sick stars Robert Nolan in the leading male role alongside fellow Canadian actors Christina Anne Aceto, Richard Sutton, Jennifer Polansky and Debbie Rochon (Bleed, Santa Claws, American Nightmare).
The film was shot and premiered in Toronto and had its American Premiere last month in Oklahoma. Sick’s next screening will be at the Macabre Faire Film Festival next month where it is up for five award nominations including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Actor (Nolan) and Best Actress (Aceto).
