Short film brings out the zombies in Petersburg

Those grey faces, sunken eyes and blank stares you’ve seen in Petersburg lately, it’s not just the rainy summer – it may be a few of the actors and extras in a locally filmed zombie movie called “Dead End Job.” It’s a short film in production this summer. One scene last week involved a couple dozen residents who responded to the call and donned makeup to appear in a scene at Hammer and Wikan grocery store. Joe Viechnicki spoke with director and producer Heather Canik, owner of Sea Monster Entertainment in Petersburg, and actor Nick Johnston about the filming.
