The first trailer for the action-horror Herd has been unveiled. The film will have its world premiere at Pigeon Shrine FrightFest on August 26th.
Herd is directed by Steven Pierce, the film stars Corbin Bernsen (Major League), Timothy V. Murphy (Snowpiercer), Ellen Adair (Homeland) Mitzi Akaha (Archive 81) and Jeremy Holm (Mr. Robot).
Jamie Miller (Adair) and her wife, Alex (Akaha) are trying to save their failing marriage by going on an isolated trip in rural Missouri. After an accident, the women find themselves trapped back in Jamie’s small hometown and where her father lives (Bernsen), which has become overrun by virus-infected ‘Heps’.
Big John Gruber (Holm) and his clan help Jamie and Alex by shuttling them to a local vet, who sets Alex’s leg. A horde of heps descends on the vet’s office, forcing the group to flee to a warehouse the locals are using as a survival base.
At the warehouse, a rival militia, led by Sterling (Murphy), arrives at the warehouse, claiming they want to trade supplies. When the trade goes south, a battle breaks out between the two militia groups causing Jamie to try and flee. Will they find a way to escape and find their way back home?
Herd screens at Pigeon Shrine FrightFest on August 26th.
