Major congrats to Justin Johnson, Erik Mauck and Aaron Marshall! News comes this week that their documentary Zombie Girl, about the making of the zombie film Pathogen by (then) 12-year-old filmmaker Emily Hagins, will premiere during Austin’s Fantastic Fest film festival, which runs Sept. 18-25.
Those who want to show this project some love are encouraged to stop by Zombie Girl‘s MySpace and Facebook pages. And for a detailed account of both the making of the documentary and Emily Hagins’ Pathogen, be sure to pick up a copy of The New Horror Handbook Oct. 31. (There now, Mr. Publisher, sir — will you take me off of the rack now please?)
Update – Aug. 13, 2008: Just learned from Emily that she will be in attendance at the premiere. A big fan of the Fantastic Fest, she had already bought her ticket long before the Zombie Girl event was announced.
