Young and phenomenally talented national award-winning director Prasanth Varma who awed all of us with his first two films Awe and Kalki is back with his third film! Produced by Apple Tree Studios, the film’s title Zombie Reddy was announced with a made-in-Hollywood spine-chilling animation that begins with a peaceful backdrop of a full moon and a temple in a close-up angle that turns violent and creepy, as the camera zooms out to show bats screaming, a tomb breaks into pieces to form the title and finally, a hand comes out of the graveyard to grab it even as the full moon transitions into a blood moon. The background score adds intensity to the terrifying visuals. More intriguingly, what is the connection between Corona and Zombie Reddy? To know that you’ll have to wait till the teaser…
The motion poster prepares us to anticipate a first of its kind experience when it will arrive in theaters. As of now, filming is almost wrapped up. Given, that is a first-ever Zombie film in Telugu based on true events, it is decidedly destined to be a blockbuster!
